Electricity monitor

Does anyone use an electricity monitor to track the amount of electricity being used at any one time? If so would they recommend?

Tried it once a couple of years back and got fed up with it after a week.
I now log my usage each month on my spreadsheet which I find more useful.

I suppose I am being a bit flippant but just turn off anything you are not using including standby overnight. :slight_smile: thats the best and easiest way to save on fuel.

Most “energy monitors” aren’t very accurate because they measure only the current and not the voltage, so they can only estimate the power in use and not calculate it accurately. If you’re interested in viewing real time power usage, it would be better to simply get a smart meter installed since these obviously have access to measuring the voltage as well as the current.
