It works
September 09, 2010

The Good:
I have installed the PowerCostMetor first at a store front, then purchased WiFi Gateway later on line. The location of the WiFiGateway is very close to the PowerMeter outdoor so the signal strength is very good and MS holm UI is reasonably intuitive.

The Bad:
Little too big. Ideally, WiFi should be an integral part of the PowerCostMonitor and eliminate Mickymouse and simplify the installation.

The Bottom Line:
Works, good enough for you and me house owner.
