"Surprisingly Hyko slightly changes the colour when we leave the fridge door open! So simple for kids to understand why they shouldn't leave it open, when they see the result on Hyko."
"Here’s an ingenious connected device to conserve energy. A great way to get people excited about conservation (and saving money)."
Our kids just couldn't keep their fascination with Hyko to themselves and told all our neighbours about him! Soon our house was filled with people who wanted to meet Hyko and try him out for themselves.
We can't wait until we get to meet Hyko in real life. Polar bear Hyko warns against melting ice caps.
It was strange to see - our coffee machine used so much. I used to leave it on all the time when going to work. Thanks to Hyko for showing us that this habit doesn't benefit our family finances.
How children learn to save energy
Hyko Bear is a smart connected glowing polar bear that visualizes your household´s electricity consumption in real-time. Hyko Bear is a beautifully designed sculptural piece, a lovely addition to any decor.
Instantly measures your household’s electricity consumption through current clamps that clip over the main cable of your electricity meter. An easy and non-intrusive installation. Wirelessly sends the data to Hyko Bear. Works with every kind of electricity meters as long as the distance between Hyko Senses and Hyko Bear is not more than 50m.
Hyko World App is all about learning to use electricity wisely. It offers, in a playful manner, competitions and statistics that are fun for both adults and kids and will keep you interested for a long time. The app will show your results, so that you can adjust your habits if necessary. It also controls the Hyko bear.
Hyko Cloud is all about data storage, analysis and control. It stores your energy profiles and usage patterns to visualize them through the Hyko World App on your mobile or tablet (iOS and Android). It will also include possibilities for integration with other Internet of things products and services.
"It’s a fun way to start a family conversation about climate change and inspire kids to become energy heroes themselves. They might even teach the grownups a thing or two."
That's why we created Hyko. That's why we founded our company, CareToSave. As a social enterprise, we measure our success by more than our balance sheet.
