Energy Monitoring Systems

Energy monitoring systems can monitor a variety of things, like electricity consumption, water consumption, solar electricity production, room temperatures, and thermostat setpoints.

Many new Apps are now entering the market that can analyze the monitored data to show you how and when you use energy.

Electricity monitoring devices are the most common. Simple monitors are available that track the electricity used from one plug. Others include a clamp that is attached to your electricity meter or mains to monitor electricity consumed in an entire house, or via your electrical panel’s circuits.
