What is it?
Watt Check measures the wattage of lights in your home to help you decide whether to switch to more efficient bulbs.
Watt Check can be run on any light in your home. The process needs about 15 seconds per light. Watt Check works best when other devices, like the stove, microwave, and laundry machines, are not also running and when the power meter on your app is relatively flat.
How do I use it?
- To use Watt Check, start from the new card in your app's Dashboard screen.
- Make sure the light you want to check is turned off.
- The tool pretty much does the rest, and even offers you the option to "Check Another Light" to repeat the simple process.
NOTE: Watt Check is a separate feature from device detection. The lights you check will not automatically appear on your Devices list.
