Looking for a simpler way to help you save money on your electric bill? With an “If This Then That” (IFTTT) applet, you have another convenient tool to help you take control of your energy costs.
ComEd has partnered with IFTTT, a free web-based service, to create applets for customers who participate in ComEd’s Peak Time Savings (PTS) program and Hourly Pricing rate. Seize the moment of automatically using cleaner energy by taking advantage of the Carbon Index applet. This applet will allow you to automatically reduce emissions associated with the electricity you use.
Applets work with your energy-related home products to help you take advantage of energy-saving opportunities.
Get Started with IFTTT
For customers enrolled in Peak Time Savings or Hourly Pricing, IFTTT can help you save even more energy and money. You can also automatically reduce carbon emissions associated with the electricity you use.
Here are a few ways IFTTT can help you save:
IF Peak Time Savings Event is in progress
THEN Adjust Smart Thermostat
ComEd alerts you when Peak Time Savings Hours will occur → Prior to the start of PTS hours your IFTTT applet will set your thermostat a few degrees lower to pre-cool your home → At the start of the PTS Hours, the IFTTT applet will raise your thermostat a few degrees. → Once the Peak Time Savings Hours are over, the applet turns your thermostat back to its original schedule.
IF Hourly Pricing Average Price is High
THEN Call Phone
The average price for Hourly Pricing customers is over your set price → Your IFTTT applet sends you a voice text announcing that the price has exceeded your preferences → You can have your smart appliances or electronics automatically turn off or adjust their settings to help save money on your electric bill.
IF the Carbon Index is dirty
To help minimize your carbon footprint you can now react when carbon index is high → During High Carbon Index, your IFTTT applet automatically adjusts your thermostat temperature → Once the carbon index is clean, the applet turns your thermostat back to its original schedule.
