This is useful for missed detection scenarios (where appliances miss to be detected) and also useful for part detection scenarios, and can orient the ML-Bot for complete & correct detection.

This is also useful to get information about possible energy leakages.
Budget: Prediction of the monthly bill amount done based on the units consumed. With utility billing information, this amount is computed basis the billing cycle. Also in this section, users can generate the summary & detailed (day-wise) Energy Statement.
