At CES 2010, Molly Wood takes a look at the Tenrehte PicoWatt Smart Plug.
Startup Tenrehte wants to make smart-home gear--but it's first going after businesses willing to pay to remotely control equipment and cut wasted energy.
Tenrehte Technologies' Wi-Fi-enabled smart plugs called PicoWatt collect data on energy consumption and let people take advantage of off-peak rates.
Tenrehte Technologies allows consumers to monitor the power consumption of appliances in their homes. Any device plugged into the PICOwatt can be controlled with just a few clicks.
