Ever wanted to track your ? Well, and Direct Energy might have the answer with that.

In a test going out to 40 homes, energy retailer Direct Energy will test how these will save and how consumers react. The system will automatically figure out how to manage the devices.

Andy McCaskey talks with Whirlpool about this pilot project and how the system works. Using the Zigbee network, the appliances will talk with each other. The test is being run this year and the system will be launched in stores by 2011.
