It presents a list of electro-electronic devices and allows you to select the region of the country where you reside. With this, it is possible to simulate the energy expenditure of a particular device through the timer, which records the consumption in kWh (kilowatt hours) in real time. This feature also lets you know how much you will spend if the selected device stays on for an hour, a day, 15 days, or 30 days.

My house

The last and most interesting section is called "My House". In it, you select the region where you live, since the rates are different in each region of the country, the rooms and environments that exist in your home, the appliances present in each of them and, finally, the average daily consumption. With this, you build your house in the app and it informs you of your approximate total monthly energy expenditure in KWh, along with the amount you see in your account based on this consumption.
