"In essence, it takes the hassle out of monitoring your home’s energy usage."
“[…] the key here are the analytics. […] we are entering the era of the quantified home.”
"In a world where the numbers of electric devices increase rapidly, it’s very important to become conscious about the energy consumption and to minimize energy waste."
This smart home device is the first product of the Parce family. It measures and controls the energy usage of your electronic devices to save you money by reducing your energy consumption.
Wirelessly connecting with the Parce cloud, the Parce One intelligently learns how you use energy, producing visual reports to enable you to clearly see how you could be saving energy and cutting hundreds of dollars off your bills.
Set it up to manage things automatically, or take control yourself at any time through easy to use web and mobile apps. We’ve focused on removing the hassle from smart energy use so you’ll never waste energy or money again!
The Parce device gets smarter the longer you use it. It picks up on your TV viewing habits, the times of day you need energy most, and even when you’re out of the house.
Easily and quickly view your home’s total power consumption at any time. See how much money and CO2 you’ve saved and find out how to save even more.
Parce helpfully asks you if it can turn off standby devices, without you needing to command it to do so.
Take control over your energy usage – it couldn’t be simpler to install the Parce One into your home.
Define detailed schedules for the Parce or select from a host of pre-defined settings. Boast about/Share your energy savings through social networks.
Use our apps on your smartphone, tablet or web browser to connect with your Parce account and access all kinds of settings remotely.
At the moment there is no way for everyone to easily save energy, money and the environment.
We’ve spotted a great opportunity to change the general opinion on power consumption, removing all the associated hassle and replacing it with attractively designed, fun to use products to enable us all to save money and the environment.
Parce’s intelligent learning means you can access the cloud any time to receive insights into your home’s energy usage – meaning you can spot new and even better ways to save money and the environment.

“Home automation is becoming increasingly popular and there are predictions the market will grow by more than 50 % by 2017”
Parce is a groundbreaking new concept within the smart home devices market. It’s not just about lifestyle and design, but could also impact on the way we all use energy and think about the environment.
The Parce One has the potential to save every home up to 150 € ($200) per year. This potential works out to be roughly 30-50% of an annual bill, and is even greater in office buildings and production plants. Here are some every day examples of power consumption in our homes.
Depending on which devices you choose to control with Parce, you will be able to recoup the investment on Parce’s hardware between 6 – 24 months of use. After that, you’ll notice the difference in your bank balance at the end of every month. Not to mention the environmental impact, which will result in an average household saving more than half a ton of CO2 per year.
The Parce concept is totally independent from energy companies and is completely focused on realizing a change in power consumption habits worldwide.
Below are the available styles of the Parce One on its launch, the first product of the Parce line. We are currently working on plans for further smart devices for saving energy.
Here’s a breakdown of the perks you can choose from when you support this campaign (select your perk from the sidebar at the top of this page).
Here are some answers to frequently asked questions:
1. Country / Sockets
We developed Parce for countries which use EU (german style) and US sockets. The beta test units will be limited to EU and US version.
We reached > $25.000 so we will provide a UK and China/Australian socket fitting version. If you purchase a perk now we will come back to you asking which of the models you will need.
The Parce One connects to your local Wifi. Therefore you can control it from everywhere you have an Internet connection via the Parce Website and any browser.
We will release the Parce App for iOS before we deliver the first units. An Android App will be released as well when we reach our goal of $20.000. A Windows Phone version will be available later.

We already have a working prototype of the Parce One and have developed the software setup.
At the moment we are gathering a team of engineers and programmers to configure our cloud intelligence and reduce the size of the hardware components. We are also in talks with manufacturers to enable us to keep production costs low.
Parce began as a concept over a year ago. We’ve spent the last 12 months defining the software and hardware requirements as well as building fully functional prototypes.
We need your help to keep on going with the development of the final app, the cloud intelligence and to manufacture the first range of the Parce One. The more help you’re able to invest in us, the more units we can build, lowering costs on manufacturing and retail price.
We’re at the cusp of making a hugely positive impact on wallets around the world, as well as the environment. Every pledge takes us a step closer.
