The aim of this project is the development of smart monitoring techniques for a timely, situation and context-dependent optimization of energy consumption in a smart home. Monitoring includes operation control, signal analysis, optimization and failure detection. The analysis and optimization of energy consumption requires holistic situation detection which considers the current energy usage of the inhabitants of the smart home as well as the usage of other households. Usage data will be enriched and visualized to support the user in their daily decision to consume energy, aiming for an increased awareness of personal energy usage.
