A week in the life of a green startup!

Yesterday OpenTRV was presenting at an opensensors.io workshop about practical IoT.  Remember how XML was going to solve everything just by being in your project?  Let's not do the same with IoT!  Let it be boring and useful.

The slides are up on SourceForge.

This weekend we are at the Master Investor show as an invited start-up exhibitor.  We're spending a lot more time on business strategy than technology at this moment because it's really not enough to invent that better mousetrap; if we want it widely used we'd better have a sustainable and investable business behind it, which also allows us to bring other energy-saving ideas to market that we have waiting in the wings!

OpenTRV sets out to make it easy to save lots of energy by just heating the rooms that you’re using, and by no longer trying to use a single thermostat to get your whole house comfortable. It is designed to be simple to (retro-)fit to existing UK housing stock with radiator central heating.
