If the last few years are any indication, Australia’s headed towards a blisteringly hot summer later this year. Through a set of internet-of-things (IoT) devices which attach to a pool’s system, the startup is able to drastically reduce the energy consumption of a household pool, reducing it to roughly 10 percent of a household’s total energy usage.
