At WeatherBug, we’re harnessing the Internet of Things to help people Know Before℠ to stay safer and be more comfortable.
Weather is the biggest factor driving your home energy use. Just as we provide real-time, hyper-local weather information from our own network of weather sensors — the largest in the world — we are expanding our big data smarts from weather to home energy and comfort with WeatherBug Home. A whopping 50% of home energy use is driven by the weather. By integrating and analyzing data from connected home devices, we can provide home energy insights, alerts and tips for greater comfort and savings.
What is WeatherBug Home?
WeatherBug Home integrates key weather variables — solar, wind speed and direction, and temperature — into home energy management and demand response programs. These variables are critical in maximizing energy efficiency and cutting costs.
Personalized Insight into Home Energy Use
By using local, real-time comprehensive weather data from the world’s largest network, WeatherBug Home provides deeper insights to help homeowners visualize their energy use and explains why their house “behaves” the way it does.
There’s no hardware or software to install. WeatherBug Home uses data from existing smart meters and two-way thermostats.
