Going Green: 5 Gadgets To Make Your Home Eco-friendly

Saturday, August 27th, 2016 by | Filed Under: Hardware & Peripherals

Are you looking for smart ways to make your home more eco-friendly? Here are some amazing gadgets produced with the environment in mind for you to try out and live a greener life.


If you use the electrical breaker box as the central element, or the brain, of your home, why not use this innovative sensor to connect your home’s electrical system to a smartphone app?


Neurio helps to reduce energy usage through its real-time monitoring features. It will tell you which appliances and devices are eating most power, helping you to adjust and save energy.

Rheem’s EcoNet

Hot water heaters are costly when it comes to energy usage. Rheem’s EcoNet is a smart home intelligence system that monitors water and home heating systems, allowing you to manage your tank in a more precise way.


Thanks to the WiFi-connected sensor, the water heater can send out alerts to your smartphone or tablet when something goes wrong and help you to optimize energy usage.

Maestro Occupancy/Vacancy Sensing Switch

Lots of people forget to turn off the lights, so Lutron‘s Maestro Occupancy/Vacancy Sensing Switch is a handy gadget. It automatically turns lights on when you enter the room and off after a specific period of inactivity.

You can only imagine what energy savings it can bring to homes if lights are turned on only when needed.

Efergy Shower Timer and Alarm

Did you know that an average person uses something between 5 to 8 gallons of water per minute while showering? That’s a lot, and it’s not exactly green. The Efergy Shower Timer and Alarm monitors the amount of water going through the drain as you shower. You can set a target and turn the device on when you start showering – you’ll hear an alarm when you meet your target.


Evolve showerhead from Evolve

If you often start the shower and then get interrupted before getting in (and lose all the warm water), this gadget is for you. The showerhead from Evolve has a temperature sensor that cuts water flow to a trickle when it reaches 95 degrees Fahrenheit. You won’t need to waste water waiting for it heat up – you’ll know when your shower is ready. It’s enough to flip a switch to restore the regular water flow and enjoy your shower.


Together with other sustainable solutions – from appliances to apps – these gadgets will help you to lead a greener lifestyle an make your home truly eco-friendly.

    The Evolve shower head is a waste of time and money! It only monitors the water temperature that is coming out of the head until the total amount of cold water which is in the pipe coming from the water heater has drained enough to attain the 95 degree temp! Just turn on the hot water and wait until it starts getting warm then adjust with cold to suit which you have to anyway with the famous head! My opinion is very low of these types of products.
