We are in 2018 and some of the biggest electrical equipments and Building Management Systems firms had burst, leaving the room to very young blooming startups, for some of them created less than 5 year ago. Would you want to work for one of these unfortunate big formerly top-in-the-class firms? You want to turn around and not stay on the side of the road?

Delve into the Non Intrusive Appliances Load Monitoring area. As seen in a previous post, NIALM technologies are processes for desegregating power and deducing what appliances are used in a building through a single metering point. Look at these up-and-coming startups. We should talk a lot about them very soon:

What if you could breakdown electricity consumption with one meter only

What if it was possible to get the power consumption breakdown by electricity usage of a building, based on a single sensor? What if all submetering systems became obsolete because of one signal processing technology? Today, this comes true thanks to NIALM (Non Intrusive Appliances Load Monitoring) technologies.

Nobody wants to pay for smart home stuff

Citing Jesse BERST, “utilities could get sucked into the smart appliances trap just as several of them fell for the in-home display idea. It doesn’t make sense for utilities to subsidize products that consumers don’t want. And consumers don’t want smart appliances.” Indeed, everybody talk about smart stuff, dozens of startups try to break into the smart home market, and no smash hit is coming.  Why?

As Beth BUCZYNSKI said, “are smart appliances worth the big investment?” It seems that the industry hasn’t yet provided a killer app everybody would be happy to pay to have it.
