Research technology goes commercial

Last year I noted research into monitoring devices for electricity and water consumption that can detect the characteristic patterns of different devices in use (their 'signature') and so produce a profile of electricity or water use within a building. That technology was spun off into a company by its inventors ( at University of Washington, Duke and Georgia Tech); and now has been bought by Belkin. Pretty main stream.
