What are your first impressions of the loop
The loop looks really good however feels a little flimsy packaging wise.
I don’t think this is actually an issue as once installed you should never touch them again, but if you were renting and moving each year I could see the parts getting damaged. Probably a good compromise between price and quality though.
How did you find installation
Really simple and easy to setup, no significant problems!
How are you finding the app?
The App looked ok, however was less polished than I hoped. It was all web page based rather than following an app style and therefore was harder to navigate intuitively
Upon loading the app, I was told I had an old version of chrome (not the desktop version) and functions may not work
During setup the app pictures were all cut off and therefore needed to use the printout or laptop version.
No alert setup to say that they sensors are catching up due to a bad signal
Tariff information just wrong.
- Doesn’t seem to support economy 7 tarrif or E7 hours
- Standing charge not managed well, the standaing charge is a significant part of my consumption, butnot explianed how this is split per hour (based on estimated usage or typical useage?)
Seems like a good system to compare tarrifs (if activated) and comparing weekly/monthly usage, to really save energy in my opinion for the day to day, you need more data ponts in a day, every 15 minutes doesn’t easily show the difference in a shower or the heating using a boiler. (however my realtime usage is not working properly so may be better on the electricity.
I’m having a problem with the electricity monitor always showing ‘catching up’ and therefore not howing real world usage.
I’l keep you updated with how their support is with a technical issue!
