HEX - home monitoring

Our homes are becoming more and more embedded with sensors and this creates the possibility of a home that is fully quantified and trackable. I’ve designed a unit of measurement called HEX (home efficiency index) that enables homeowners to compare different kinds of services, products and actions. Being able to compare different things leads to better decisions, and an incentive for improvement. This could create a global movement for being more efficient, making better choices, and it would also force utility providers to create more user-centered services. HEX is a dynamic, personal unit of measuring the long term impacts of our decisions.
