Want to measure electricity consumption at your home? Use ElectricityMate , this week’s Featured Project. The project has been chosen because we like the simple and innovative approach it uses for measuring power use .
ElectricityMate measures the electricity consumption(in KWh) by taking into count the blinking of LED present on electricity meters. The blinking of LED light is observed by checking the illumination values on video frames that are captured from the camera preview buffer of a Windows Phone device(Lumia 900/920).The Files section of the project has a video(.mp4) file which shows the app in action.
Last but not the least we hope that project owner & all its members/contributors will keep on contributing to it continuously to make it more lively & a wonderful project.
