The Aztech In-Home Display empowers you to take charge of your energy use and costs.

The easy to use Aztech In-Home Display enables you to monitor your whole home electricity usage. It shows you how much electricity you are using, when you are using it and how much it costs. 

The Aztech IHD provides accurate, real-time electricity use information direct from your Smart meter. You never have to update pricing or Daylight Savings time changes as they are automatically updated.

The Aztech Light Arc: Conservation information at its simplest

The light sweeps from left to right across the Aztech’s Light Arc. The color changes as your electricity rate changes; and the speed of the movement increases as your electricity use increases.

Feature rich and easy to use

The Aztech displays current electricity usage, Quick Read, 24 hour and 28 day screens, as well as detailed summary screens for each time period and tier price. In addition it will display electricity generation information, where supported by utility companies.

Note: If you are an industrial or commercial user with a ZigBee transformer meter, the meter may need to be configured by your utility to allow the IHD to display usage data properly.  This should be confirmed prior to placing your IHD order.

A few simple steps from purchase to energy savings:

1 icon No hassle installation

  • Communicates wirelessly to the Smart meter on your home (check out this short video about Smart meter communication).
  • No utility or electrician installation required – just plug it in!
  • Then, charge the integrated battery for four hours before turning on your Aztech (your IHD is designed to be used while plugged in, but the battery enables Quick Reads*).
  • Follow your electrical utility’s directions (if any) for registering and joining your Aztech.
  • Turn on your Aztech!

2 icon Start conserving electricity

The Aztech has the features you need to help raise your energy awareness. It is designed to give feedback about your energy use that you can take immediate action on. For homeowners who want things simple and easy, or those who are interested in using all the information the Aztech provides, there are many ways to save.

Quick Reads

Aztech In-Home Display - Quick Read

  • The Quick Read function helps your root out the energy hogs in your home (see Conservation Café for information on how to use this feature).

  • Reduce the use of high consumption appliances during high price periods.

  • Find out how much electricity you have used so far – for the day or the month.

The design of the Aztech In-Home Display LCD screen and Light Arc really draw customers’ attention.-  Ryan Hamid, Director, Conservation Programs & Development, Ecofitt
In the six weeks since we started using our Aztech In-Home Display we have become very aware of our electricity usage. When you can see the amount of electricity being used in real time you can do something about it.- Chuck, PG&E Customer
It’s going to facilitate better pool pump and chlorination system management in the summer so that we conserve electricity and reduce the amount of electricity we are using during more expensive rate periods.- Westario Power Inc. customer
It's an awesome tool!-  San Diego Gas & Electric customer
The instantaneous (Quick Read) feature is the main reason I bought the IHD. We are going to benefit from being aware of what each electrical appliance consumes, and knowing when to shift our usage to a time of day when the rates are lower. Both of these things will help us lower our electrical bill. If you want to get a handle on you electrical usage the Aztech give you the information to do so.- Chuck, PG&E customer
My name is Elijah, one of my chores is the dishwasher. I don't start the dishwasher unless the light arc is green.- 11 yr. old Peterborough Utilities customer
We have only had our Aztech IHD for two weeks and it’s already enabling our conservation efforts. The ability of this unit to run on battery and wireless for Quick Reads is helping us determine how much power our appliances and electrical household equipment is drawing. We found out that our 12 year old refrigerator was running continuously and has to be replaced.- Westario Power Inc. customer
...It's very simple to use, and technology and I don't really get along, and I could install it fine. It tells you high-peak time or off-peak time, so if I am going to do something, I am going to wait the extra hour so that it's off-peak, so that I don't pay as much as I could be paying.-  Peterborough Utilities customer
Customers have access to important information, including the 24 hour and 30 day screens without having to go online. They don’t need to change the pricing twice a year because it is done automatically, and we can send messages to them via the IHD.-  Rene Beaulne, Manager, Hydro 2000 Inc.
Now that customers are on Time of Use rates, the true value of the information being presented is being realized - customers are embracing the Aztech Technology.- David Whitehouse, Director of Customer/Corporate Services and the Conservation Officer, Peterborough Utilities
