iotty: The smart energy-saving solution for Green households

Monday, 9 November 2020  |  Amit

As the eco revolution continues apace, many households around the UK are doing their bit to ease their burden on the environment. From recycling waste products to finding alternative methods of transport, sustainability is becoming a key factor in many consumer and lifestyle decisions.

But how can we measure this impact? We have gadgets and gizmos aplenty for tracking fitness, sleep, and consumer spending, but little visibility when it comes to tracking household power consumption.

This is what makes Retrotouch’s iotty switch an indispensable tool for those looking to make a measurable decrease in their energy usage. Using its smart technology, you can see realtime, granular reports showing exactly how much power you’re using, allowing you to make adjustments accordingly.

So how does this work?

Retrotouch’s Iotty switches give users access to up-to-date energy consumption data through its accompanying smartphone app. Here, you’ll be able to access information about which connected units are sapping the most power, and where more efficiencies can be made. Not only will you be able to see realtime reports about how many kilowatts are being used, you’ll also be able to track past power consumption to see how you’re trending over time.

In addition, with its geolocation technology, users will be able to ensure that lighting fixtures operate only when you’re in the vicinity. While all of us forget to switch off the lights from time to time, this is an excellent technological solution to make sure you have power only when you need it.

And it’s not just interior light switches. Imagine a home where every electrical application can be controlled through this energy efficient technology.

Imagine driving home from work and having your garage door open on arrival. You park your car, with the garage lights illuminating the way. As you enter the home, electric blinds and shutters automatically open, letting fresh air in. You then make your way into the lounge, where the lights are perfectly dimmed, just the way you like it. By letting home automation into your life, you’re making your lifestyle simpler and more economical.

All this is possible when using a combination of Retrotouch’s iotty Wi-Fi switches. And the best thing about it, is that anyone can achieve these results with minimal effort.

Installing these switches is easy, and the process can be seen in this 6-step installation guide. Our product page also contains a wealth of information about setup, and how to achieve spectacular results around your home.
