Problem Statement

I am designing this hack for college students who don’t live on campus, who have to worry about power bills, and who need help figuring out where they could save electricity. The area of power usage I am specifically focusing on is light usage.

College students have very hectic schedules, and so it’s hard to figure out patterns in their behavior. Using an IoT appliance would be great for them specifically because it can just silently monitor their actions without requiring any additional work in their busy lives. 

I chose college students because I personally am one and can relate more as a result. And I chose this problem because turning off unnecessary lights is personally something my roommate and I have a problem doing consistently.
