UK Energy monitor
« on: January 05, 2015, 12:28:31 pm »
Hi

I'm hoping you guys can help, what's the best buy for monitoring UK energy usage on my vera ? There appears to be loads of options for the U.S.  I would like to be able to monitor and graph my usage if that is possible ?

I have an rfx as well, if that helps ??

Cheers
Nath

I think you have 2 (dont know about RFX options) - the Aeon labs one and the current cost plugin. I used the current cost plugin and it works ok, but ended up removing it as the load seemed quite high from amount of traffic in the logs and I was getting restarts. May have been unrelated. I am thinking I may split the energy monitoring to my spare veralite. I think both have their issues, so depends on your priorities.

If you have a smartmeter, forget about any direct integration. From what I understand our standard stupidly disables the ability to connect into the meter via a port, so unless that changes, we are stuck with the legacy methods.

Cheers as I thought, not a load of options, but will look in to those two. Thanks
