The Energy Dashboard of the Telekom Austria Group is a prototype for a smart home information interface with a focus on energy consumption monitoring. The user receives a detailed overview of their electricity, gas and water consumption. In addition, they can control different devices, such as lamps or electric blinds.
The “Smarthome” interface includes gamification aspects, such as a photovoltaic ranking, in which the energy yield of the own plant can be compared with other photovoltaic systems, e.g. with others in the neighbourhood. Such elements are crucial for a sustainable interest in energy monitoring. The “Smarthome” interface was conceived and designed to work comprehensively with a number of devices (from smartphones to TV sets).
