artifact description
This project involved the design and implementation of a system to report to a homeowner his or her oil consumption in an easy to understand manner. A sensor and phone application were designed, built, and interfaced to track the run time of the furnace and process and report that data to the user on a graph. Energy consumption is a leading topic of discussion for homeowners and given the current economic climate, households are always looking for new and innovative ways to cut costs.
