Monitor Your Energy Use

SmartHub includes robust energy use analytics tools, which allows you to compare energy use over time and against weather data. Tracking your energy use like this lets you see if you’re using more energy than usual and empowers you to make adjustments if necessary.

Some ways you can use SmartHub for energy use monitoring:

  • Analyze and understand usage trends to find ways to cut back.
  • Create and track a monthly budget to avoid unexpected high utility bills.
  • Set a point or range in time to compare differences in usage.

Following are some key energy monitoring tools within SmartHub:

Usage Explorer

Usage Explorer gives you a detailed look at your past and current usage, all in one place. View your usage and weather trends by month, or if available by day or hour.

Average Usage

Average Usage shows you what your typical or average usage is for your selected time period. For example, see your average usage on each day of the week (such as Tuesdays), over the course of a year. Or see your typical usage in each hour of the day over the course of two weeks. Discover when you can save the most on your utility bill.


With the Planning tool, create markers for a point in time to help you keep track of the differences in your usage. For example, set an energy marker to find out the change in your usage after installing a new water heater or upgrading an appliance.

Notifications Management

Want a reminder that your bill is due? Interested in knowing that your payment posted? Stay on top of your account by telling SmartHub when and how to contact you. You can even keep your bill within budget by setting energy-use thresholds that let you know when you’re using more than you’d like.
