The PowerCost Monitor WiFi Edition is a bundle that includes both the popular PowerCost Monitor home energy meter and the new upgrade accessory, the PowerCost Monitor WiFi Gateway. The WiFi Gateway accessory extends the use of the PowerCost Monitor device and allows you to monitor your home's electricity usage data online using third-party online software.

How the PowerCost Monitor Works

The PowerCost Monitor is a home electricity monitor that includes 2 parts: (1) the sensor, which reads your meter, easily installs at the utility meter outside your house and doesn't require messing around with wireless or your electrical panel. And the second part (2) the wireless display; an attractive, counter-top size-friendly device that looks like a small electric clock, which at the push of a button displays, in real-time, your moment-to-moment and total electricity costs in dollars and cents and in kilowatt hours.

How the WiFi Gateway Works

The PowerCost Monitor WiFi enables you to feed your personal real-time electricity usage data.
