Toronto-based ecobee Inc. has announced the beta launch of Home IQ, a value-added energy-monitoring service.

"ecobee's Home IQ takes thousands of data points, automatically collected through a customer's ecobee thermostat, and uses advanced math and physics to create a model that learns about our customers' home, and provides them with insights into their homes' energy performance," says Stuart Lombard, ecobee's president and CEO.

ecobee's Home IQ is integrated into each customer's ecobee Web Portal. The company says Home IQ displays the customer's ecobee rating (a relative assessment of a home's energy performance), estimated monthly energy savings, monthly heating and cooling summaries, details on performance influencing factors such as the weather, HVAC runtime reports and more.

ecobee says it plans to build upon the existing Home IQ beta platform to add further insights into their customers' home energy performance.
