By using iDevices Switch, Outdoor Switch and Wall Outlet, homeowners can save money on utility bills. The app shows current wattage draw, estimated cost, as well as average hours used, giving users the insight they need to make better energy saving decisions daily. Your energy report can be viewed by Day, Week, Month, Year or All Time. You will also receive a convenient monthly energy overview pop-up, allowing you a quick look at your energy usage.
When you open the iDevices app for the first time, it will allow you to enable location services which will customize your Energy Report. If you haven't allowed location services initially, you can always enable it later by going to Settings > iDevices > Change "Location" to "While Using the App".
By default, when location services are enabled, the app will show your energy report using the average energy rate for your local State or Province. If location services are not enabled, the national average will be shown.
Follow these steps to customize your specific energy rate and see a comparison of your rate against the average rate of your State or Province:
- Tap "Edit" to the right of the name of your home
- Scroll down and tap "Energy Rates.” You will see the average State or Province rate listed currently
- Enter your custom energy rate in the box, based on of the energy rate your electric bill
