Ecoisme – Intelligent Energy Monitoring System

Track energy usage of any device, get tips to reduce it and alerts about devices left turned on.
Ivan Pasichnyk (Ecoisme CEO)

Meet Ecoisme

The World’s Most Intelligent Home Energy Monitoring System 

Ecoisme is a single device for your home that brings a new level of comfort to your life! Thanks to the technology behind Ecoisme, you can now track energy consumption for your devices, get clear recommendations on how to reduce energy usage and receive alerts when devices are left turned on.

With Ecoisme you don’t need to worry if you forget to switch off the iron or AC, if your kids left the lights on in the middle of the night, or if the refrigerator door has been left open. Ecoisme will help you to take care of this.

We have created a solution that is extremely easy to use and perfect in all aspects of design, usability and accuracy. One sensor is all it takes to make your home truly smart.

Press coverage


Know your home

Be aware of how much energy is used by your home appliances. Track energy usage for your AC, heater, kettle, oven, TV, phone charger, laptop, etc., on one simple dashboard. Find out which appliances are energy-efficient or not and receive precise tips on how to improve and reduce your energy usage.

Get critical alerts

Ecoisme incorporates your home appliances. If you forget to switch off the iron, AC, hair straightener or stove, Ecoisme will immediately remind you. It will even remind you if you forgot to close the refrigerator door or if you leave a window open in the hot summer days. 

Improve your kids’ safety

With Ecoisme you will know when your kids come home and what devices they are using. By checking the enabled devices on your Ecoisme profile, you can observe if the microwave oven, TV or Xbox® was turned on. You can receive a quick and simple read on how much time has been spent on each device to make sure they are within the limits you have set for them. 

If you have a babysitter watching over your kids, you will know exactly which  activities are being done with your children and for how long. For example, you will be able to see if your babysitter is watching TV instead of actively playing with your children.

Integrate with other solutions

Do you have NEST®, WeMo® or other smart devices at your home? Ecoisme will integrate with them, making your home significantly smarter. Smart devices within your home can be synced with Ecoisme, reducing the time spent managing each device separately and making it easy to multi-task. Easy tasks such as powering on the coffee machine when you wake up, turning off your AC when you leave home and programming your stereo system turn on at a certain time can be easily managed with Ecoisme.

Integrate with solar panels

If you have solar panels, you will be able to easily integrate them with Ecoisme and get a new level of visualisation – clear, intelligent and user-friendly. Ecoisme will show you, for example, that half of coffee was made by solar energy or you reduced your expenses on water heating on 30% because of solar panels. Moreover, Ecoisme will suggest you how to use solar energy in the best way. For example, it will notify you that if you wash clothes now, you will do it free of charge, using energy only from solar panels.

Why Ecoisme?


We designed Ecoisme with simplicity in mind. Setting up your Ecoisme sensor is safe and easy, and takes less than 10 minutes. Just put a clamp on your main power line and insert the plug into the power socket. Afterwards you can view details from your home appliances, receive personalized tips on how to lower your electricity billand view important alerts, all through the Ecoisme web or mobile app.


You can easily teach Ecoisme to recognize your devices. Although Ecoisme will be able to recognize most of your devices automatically, you can teach it to learn a new device instantly. In order to do this, just follow two easy steps:

  • Click add new device
  • Switch it on/off a few times.

Accessible from everywhere

Ecoisme can be accessed through the web or mobile app from anywhere in the world. Moreover, the Ecoisme app can track your location. And if you have left your home, it will notify you to return to disable household devices, left turned on.

And very powerful

Ecoisme uses complex technology, combining spectrum and power analysis.

We use power analysis to detect simple devices such as the kettle or iron. These devices have specific fingerprints in power usage and time which allows us to detect each unique device.

To recognize devices with impulse power blocks such as a TV, laptop, or phone charger, we use spectrum analysis. These devices produce unique noise in electric network. We can even detect different brands of devices by using this advanced technology.

The clamp sensor is used to measure the current. The connection of a plug to the socket is used to measure voltage and will also power the sensor.

Our road to Indiegogo

We spent almost 2 years, developing Ecoisme. During our development process we created 4 sensor prototypes, beginning with simplest form, the Arduino-based which was completely inaccurate and measured only power, to now our latest sensor which is small, measures both power and spectrum and sends all the data via WiFi.

We created a number of design concepts and finally settled on a look that was discrete and one that could blend in with any setting.

We performed a lot of tests before finalizing the sensor. With that being said, we would like to thank the 30 participants whom all agreed to let us install sensors in their apartments so we could collect data and improve our algorithms. The data collected for each device also helped us program the sensor to recognize multiple household appliances.

How to check whether I have 1-phase or 3-phase network?

Check the label on your fuse box to see how many phases your house uses. If it says 3-Phase (for example, “3-Phase 120/208V” or “3-Phase 240/415V”), then you order the 3-phase Ecoisme sensor. Otherwise order 1-phase sensor.

How can I install Ecoisme sensor?

We will provide you with a video guide to install the sensor.

Is it safe to install the sensor?

If you are not sure how to work on your electrical installation, we suggest you to invite an electrician, because it can be dangerous. 

Is the device certified?

Of course, Ecoisme sensor will be certified before shipping.

How the system can be integrated with other solutions?
Ecoisme will have Open API and we will build integrations with other solutions based on their API. For example, if you need to connect Ecoisme with NEST, you will just need to enter the Integrations option on the Ecoisme dashboard and click Connect with NEST.
Why did you select flexible goal?
We made it to simplify the contribution process and make it as easy for you as possible. With fixed goal only PayPal is available which is not a convenient option for many our contributors.
