Energy Monitor
Real-time Electricity Monitoring updated once every minute. We were consuming about 10.000 kWh a year, way to much! For years I was thinking about a plan to measure the electricity automatically. With this little project I was able to reduce the electricity from 10.000kWh to 6000kWh. Because of the accurate and minute by minute reading of electricity consumption I became much more aware of it all. I found out that I was consuming 0.600 kWh at night! With simple things like unplugging adapters of my cellular (GSM) and kill standby of the harddiskrecorder, computers and television I was able to reduce the power to around 320 Watts. I also discovered that there are a lot of power adapters which consume a lot of energy with doing nothing, so I use now switching power adapters which have a high performance and so consume much less energy. The energy monitor is automatically plugged in my Home Control System which adds nice little features like for example getting a mail on your cellular (GSM) if the power consumption is higher then 500 Watt and there is no one at home.

I really think automating your home or business and controlling your energy can help to reduce the worlds growing energy problem (2003).

Real-time Electricity Counters
The Real-time electricity counters below are updated every hour. The Right one is the night counter (night-rate) and the left on is the day counter (day-rate). The counters are exactly synchronic with the counters of the power company, so we don't have to write it down!

Real-time Electricity Monitoring Since 2003 I had different solutions to measure the energy consumption in the Bwired house. In 2012 I finally start using the Iskra MT371 Smartmeter making it all much more easier and precise. The smartmeter has a so called P1 output connector which can be very easily connected to your home automation system. The P1 output provides every 10 seconds the real-time counters for Energy and Gas usage. Also the revenues of my Solar panels are measured with the Iskra smart-meter. Check my blog for more information.
