Don't wait for the bill at the end of the month to see how much energy you used. Instead, use Homeview to track and monitor your electricity or water. If you have other supported devices like thermostats or smart plugs connected in your home, you can monitor and control those too. To use the HomeView skill, you tell Alexa to "Ask My Utility ..." The CEIVA Homeview skill works exclusively with the CEIVA Homeview in home display. To use this skill you must have a CEIVA HomeView account. When enabling this skill CEIVA will provide a screen for you to input your CEIVA sign-in name and password. Now you can access that valuable information directly from your Echo. The CEIVA Homeview skill delivers your home's electricity and water information directly to your Echo. No longer will you have to wait for your monthly utility bill. Are you concerned about water usage? Have Echo check with "My Utility" to find out - Much water did I use last week? - Do I have a water leake? - When am I allowed to water my lawn? Keep tabs on you electricity usage by asking: - How much power did I use yesterday - How is my bill looking for this month? - When is my peak electricity usage? If you have connected solar panels, "My Utility" can tell you how much you generated so far today or last week. HomeView connected thermostats also enable "My Utility" to tell you what is the inside temperature or set point. If you are enrolled in your utilities demand response events you can ask if any events are scheduled. Homeview also knows what your current electricity rate is and can tell you as well as telling you about any time of day based rate changes that are active. CEIVA Homeview in home displays are currently available through select utilities. Please contact your utility company for more information.
