Although smart meters are fitted now in most homes its still useful to have a power monitor. A power monitor can detect large kettle spikes that show the person is busy boiling the kettle. As a safety feature it can also be used to detect when for example the cooker oven has been left on !

Unfortunately no suitable off the shelf power sensor could be found, so the only solution was to develop our own.

Although the module was only intended to give a rough guide of high power use recent tests have shown it to be surprisingly accurate.

Power Monitor cost 20

 

 

See below power usage comparison against smart meter for 24Nov.
