CE Week 2012

LAGUNA BEACH, Calif.--FutureDash™ Corp. announces today that its EnergyBuddy™ home energy monitoring system is now available for pre-ordering on the world's largest open-funding platform IndieGoGo at special introductory pricing.

With a unique glowing 'red, yellow, green' luminescent top EnergyBuddy tells you at a glance whether your consumption is over or under-budget. It also brings your electricity use to life in far more detail with colorful dashboards showing dials, gizmos and graphs so that you know exactly where your home's electricity is being used and what you can do to reduce it.

Information and control is available on your iPhone, iPad, Android smartphone or computer screen as it happens, from anywhere on the net and is totally secure. Empowered with this information you can optimize your energy usage to cut your costs, reduce your energy budget and lower your environmental impact.

In addition to total home energy consumption, by adding optional SmartPlugs you get even more detail and control over individual appliances, devices and power strips.

EnergyBuddy is the only home energy monitoring system available directly to U.S. consumers that comes complete with all hardware, software, mobile apps, optional SmartPlugs and the flexibility to evolve over time via cloud services at an affordable cost.
