<b>Bert expects to soon have the latest version (CM119) working with the RFXcom.</b>

http://www.theowl.com/

OWL, the Wireless Electricity Monitor, provides up to the second information on the amount of electricity you are using in terms of both power and cost. This means you can see in real time the benefits of turning off electrical devices at home. Whether its turning off at the plug rather than just using standby, or simply turning off a light, OWL shows you the cash impact of changing your habits and behaviours which could amount to savings of hundreds of pounds per year.

OWL now features a cumulative memory feature, making it easier than ever to monitor electricity usage.

By enabling you to see for the first time how much electricity you are using, as you use it, OWL will help you to manage your electricity consumption and your carbon footprint. So whether youre visiting the site to buy one of these ingenious devices or simply to find out more about energy saving and climate change, weve got some great deals and advice to offer you.

Simple to install, OWL easily connects to your electrical supply without the need for an electrician.

This unit is supported by RFXCOM since quite a while. I'm using it with RFXCOM and Homeseer, and the last RFXCHARTS does also make nive graphics for power usage.

I like to emphasize the usage of the OWL versus the RFXMeter.

If you only want a rough power usage indication with a 10 percent margin the OWL is an option. For each phase a current sensor is needed and a special RFXCOM receiver.
If you want a power usage indication with the same precision as the utility meter you need the RFXCOM RFXMeter + RFXPwr module or RFXPulse. For each phase an RFXPwr is needed or if the utility meter has the blinking power usage LED you need one RFXPulse.
