I now have a real Home Electricity Monitor.
This will allow me to track and graph my electricity use wherever I
can access the internet – even on my mobile phone using the Google
Power Meter App!
Not sure if this is a good thing as I may just end up worrying more about how much my bills are.
I may never boil the kettle or have my heating on again let alone take a shower 🙁
Although it will be very interesting and I will be able to keep my eye on those boys at the weekend too
Now I just need Geoff to come and set it all up for me 🙂

Need more details 🙂
How do you make it visible over the internet waves?
you use a current bridge and it displays in google power meter 🙂
Sally I no nothing about Google Power Meter .. .. but I am not that concerned when I am away , as no-one else at home normally .. …
Steve .. funnily enough I do look at the meter , when my hubby is home .. definitely changes .. .. but as he is away around about 150 days of the year .. or maybe more .. I save there ..
Now you can save loads of electricity by switching off the tv and watching the meter instead… like someone else I know! 😉
I have one too…. got it from my Electricity company. Unless it is a super duper one, and is so different to mine, you can set it up on your own. Yours most probably is different , but ours was very easy to set up.
And Sally you will get a shock when you put the Kettle on .. it is one of the Surge electrical items also the Microwave.
was it easy to get it displaying on google power meter ??
Husband bought one of those a few weeks ago. Now it’s ‘What are you doing?!! Why are we using so much electricity?!!’ all the time …
that is what i shall be like with the boys…. it could teach them a good lesson 🙂
