Real reviews from some of our 350,000 PowerCost monitor users

  • “It's really improved seems to drop the signal less from the meter. Website a lot better but can't find data export. I want to combine it with Ecobee data and weather data to determine a few things. It's more accurate than I can get from Powerstream which has fewer data points and same rounding. It would also be fun to link it to other pricing plans like I have at the moment from Powerstream which has a flat rate except between 3 and 9 pm when it can be 10, 20, or 40c depending on demand. “

  • “I am overall very glad with the new Connector and web interface. Two things could be better: first to be able to download and print the setup guide; second, I would like to be able to display the meter sensor temperature in the new interface.“
