The tech connects us to hands free device sin the car for phone calls, we can use it to print documents from our smartphones, and to listen to music with no wires.
The Bluetooth SIG has announced that it is bringing Bluetooth tech to the Smart Grid as well.

Using a Smart Grid the homeowner can keep track of how much power they are using and use data to find devices on the grid using too much power.
