Ratings and Reviews
I have been using the Insight App since almost the inception. One feature that disappeared with the upgraded platform is the ability to zoom in and view power consumption on the wheel. Without the ability to zoom in it is nearly impossible to see how long appliances are operating (mostly furnace) and to help diagnose problems. My furnace is almost 20 years old and I know the power consumption pattern and when it changes I know to investigate.
Please bring back the zoom function!!!

Provides the insights to save
The app when combined with the energy bridge allows users to take a deep dive into the energy consumption of their home. While the insights provided are helpful and have been improving in recent releases your savings will vary based on your engagement with the app and will be amplified the more curious you are. In my case I identified a few older appliances that were like energy vampires, consistently inflating my monthly bill. Biggest change for me was replacing the old fridge in the garage. If you really want to increase the experience smart plugs not only allow you to control things remotely but provide independent energy metering with precision not available utilizing software based algorithms. DTE offers a lot of great rebate programs to help you save on new appliances once you have identified where your home could be more efficient. In my case I can honestly say my average monthly usage is down ~25% year over year which for me translates to about $450/yr because of the actions I’ve taken that the app helped me identify.
I enjoyed the old app and recommended it to friends. I cannot do that any longer. It doesn’t give me the information I got before. I was able to compare year to year, month to month and can no longer do that. Unless they can change it back or make this new platform better, I will be canceling after the six-month trial.
Update on July 27,2018 - Developers have made changes and the month over month feature now is back. They did say the historical comparison data will be reinstated with new features to come. They listened to everyone that had concerns and I do think they are trying to make things better. Good job DTE and thank you for listening.
