Actually it started with me having to pay huge utility bills. I watched the trend of my bills and how they were climbing up and thought to myself if I don’t do something about it very soon it will definitely create a hole in my wallet. Initially when I installed the Ohm bot I wanted to check if my utility meter was reporting correctly, it was. That meant I was genuinely consuming too much power and that too by copious amounts. I said to myself, if during monsoon or beginning of winter I’m paying this much I’ll end up paying much more during summers.

So I started watching the overall performance of the appliances on the app. I started watching my trends and looking at the consumption overall, I was really interested to know which appliance was consuming more and by monitoring I could pinpoint that my geyser was consuming the most. I also found my pump was consuming too much, three times more than it should! With the trend feature. I learned that when it’s powered on for too long it consumes too much. I started using it less and later replaced the pump itself. The unit consumption decreased by 50%. But soon I found out the pump that I had gotten replaced was damaged, the technicians failed to check it while installing. The moment we switched the power on an alarm was triggered and I told them something seems to be wrong since the pump is consuming too much power, which I could clearly see on the app. We removed the pump to check what the issue was and found out it was indeed damaged.
