The Monster Power Control App enables end users to manage, monitor and control home appliance settings and power consumption from the palm of their hand and is based on People Power's Energy Services Platform (ESP).
"The average home has 20-30 devices running at any given time driving up energy consumption and resulting in increased costs to people and the planet," said Gene Wang, CEO of People Power. "We are thrilled to be working with Monster to give their customers an easy, convenient way to cut power consumption from their smart phone."

"People Power delivers an app that revolutionizes the customer experience for power management."
Powered by People Power's Energy Services Platform, a cloud-based software solution that analyzes real-time and historical energy information from connected devices, the Monster Power Control App is designed to work with Monster's new PRT family of PowerCenters -- comprehensive power protection solutions for home theater components, computer equipment, appliances and more. The Monster App enables users to manage the power consumption and settings of home appliances from their smart phones. Essentially, this new application provides consumers with the opportunity to virtually control any electronic device in their home while on the go. Key features include:
- Provides useful information in an easy-to-read format for end users
- Allows users to track valuable power usage dollars by device over time
- Enables consumers to pre-schedule control of all connected devices
