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.
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 the home name in the upper left-hand corner
- Scroll down to "Energy Rates,” then tap the national, state, or province rate listed below
- Enter your custom energy rate in the box, based on the energy rate of your electric bill
- Tap "Done" to save your changes
