8. Smart shower
If you want to save money and to protect environment at the same time, take a look at Amphiro A1: a self-powered shower meter. It will help you check the temperature/volume of water used and rate the energy efficiency class of the shower. The energy consumption can be displayed in watt-hours or kilowatt-hours. Amphiro A1 activates automatically when water starts flowing and stops when it is turned off. All the data is shown immediately on a small screen.
The shower meter doesn’t need electricity to run: it gets charged from the energy, generated by the water flow. This is a good example of a really smart gadget: it is simple, effective, and doesn’t require any additional appliances or resources.
