Valta: Energy Usage Simplified

Valta remote energy management system lets you cut costs and energy in one simple and easy-to-use system. This cost-effective solution is designed to save energy by automatically detecting unused devices and sending alerts. The Valta system consists of a v-Hub, socket, app, Web app and cloud servers.

By plugging in Valta sockets and using an app that can be installed on an iPhone, Valta manages plugged in devices including an iron, TVs, coffee makers, various lamps and more. The sockets are equipped with a high-resolution chipset along with a patented energy detection/measurement system to measure and recognize idle power. The information on energy usage can be sent via push notifications and accessed through the app. The data gleaned from Valta allows for energy consumption awareness by showing users their energy-usage patterns, which can ultimately save money and energy.

Currently 17 backers have pledged $1,745 of the $100,000 goal. The funding period ends July 23, 2013.
