This new technology from Current Cost allows electricity use of specific appliances such as fridges and televisions to be monitored on screen and online, giving householders even greater awareness of energy consumption and potential to reduce the impact of cash-guzzling devices.

These IAMs (Individual Appliance Monitors) from Current Cost are a plug-in device that work in conjunction with the company’s home energy monitors, enabling users to accurately track the cost of running any household appliance with a standard three pin plug.

The IAM is one of the newest products in the energy specialist’s range of innovative technologies and has been designed to enable UK householders to identify energy wastage. Up to nine individual appliances can be monitored through a single display unit. The resulting data can then be viewed either on-screen or online via a PC, laptop or smart phone when using the Current Cost NetSmart device.

At present, the NetSmart connects to Current Cost monitors enabling the whole-of-house energy data plus temperature reading to be sent to an online dashboard. The manufacturer’s new NetSmart Pro will not only allow users to view their whole of house energy usage data, but, also allow them to view the energy usage of specific areas of the home monitored by IAMs, identifying areas that are excessively consuming power.

“Like all our devices, the IAM has been designed to heighten user knowledge and can help them further understand how energy may be being wasted, even when appliances are not in use but left on standby,” says Current Cost Managing Director, Martin Dix.

“Our new NetSmart Pro device will make it possible to post individual appliance usage online, graph the usage and compare its efficiency with other household appliances. With the release of the Pro service it will also be possible for users to monitor their energy usage via our Facebook application. Consumers will be able to use the medium of Social Networking through Facebook to monitor and share their energy usage with friends and family while exchanging energy saving tips.”
