Proposal: As technology gets more and more advanced, more electricity is drawn from each outlet in your house, business, etc… . Due to all of this new technology being in demand from the public, it is more common for breakers and fuse boxes to blow because of the amount of power being consumed in households. This may not be a huge inconvenience for people who are doing activities such as watching television, but the people who work on a computer from home may experience a loss of progress if the power stops being supplied. This may result in the loss of a job if a lot of work/data were to be lost. We have created a product that will allow you to determine if you are close to drawing too much power from an outlet. This will let you know what you can plug in and where. When a lot of power is being drawn and you are getting close to blowing a fuse, the system will alert you so you are aware of what will happen if more power is consumed. Therefore, you will never have to worry about your work because the power to your computer will continue to be supplied.
