The home energy space is growing rapidly as more homeowners become conscientious of the environmental and economic impacts of energy use and conservation. In addition, people are looking for more security with their energy as many have experienced some degree of power loss in their homes due to natural disasters, rolling blackouts, and other circumstances out of their control. As a result of these things, homeowners have embraced renewable energy resources, like solar, and home energy storage systems. Home energy monitoring systems have grown in popularity as well, which provide energy use data. While these products have flooded into the market, they have generally remained as standalone systems with little or no connection to the rest of the home and do not provide much in the way of actions to address energy consumption. Home automation and its ability to control environmental systems such as lighting, HVAC, shades, etc., has tremendous potential to aid consumers in energy conservation and management. But, these two industries, home energy and home automation, have generally remained a world apart.

To have a successful business you need customers who come back to you for your services.
