Great product when it works

Every time it rained the meter sensor battery compartment filled with water and unit would quit working.In six months corrosion set in, product no longer works. Power monitor was given as a gift. I have no proof of purchase. No Warranty

Pros: Easy set up

Cons: Did not work longer than six months

Neat Product, but not allowed by my local electric company (They serve 11 states).

My electric company specifically prohibits customers from mounting things on the glass globe of the meter. It has to do with safety. If this device is mounted on the glass, they can not remove the meter base cover (to pull the meter in case of fire).
PLEASE CHECK WITH YOUR LOCAL UTILITY BEFORE YOU BUY THIS DEVICE!

Pros: Looks cool. Seems to work great.

Cons: The utility may FORCE you to REMOVE the device when they find it. In most states, the utility owns the meter, and can make rules about what gets attached to the meter. Please check your local service guide (probably on the Utility Web Site).

Works great, easy installation.

Power monitor was well worth what I paid, however, I did find it severely marked down at a closeout chain store. Was easy to install and program for my meter.

Pros: Ease of installation and use. Can tell at a glance exactly how much electric we are using and what appliances use the most. Learning to track usage and ways of cutting monthly bill!

Cons: Have found nothing to dislike so far!

A great way to see where its all going..

The unit worked great with the old rotary meter and had a problem setting it up on the pay per use meter, its very critical that it be adjusted just right or will not work properly, NOTE good quality batteries are the key... once the batteries go below a certain level, it will go to sleep or give you bad readings if at all. it does work and nothing on the market (if there is one) can compare especially for the price., I have recommended this unit to family and a few of them who are concerned about costs are happy with it.

Pros: As an electrian myself, I took it upon myself to try this out, it keeps an eye on what I am using , I only have it set up to read power usage and not cost... I have trained my son to view the meter and adjust his use accordingly especially during high cost times. .

Cons: tricky to set up on the pay per use meter, but once its set up, it works fine. keeping fresh batteries in a must and during winter months here in ontario, the colder it is outside, the harder it is on the outside unit batteries... that's the only issue.

This thing is awesome

I was able to easily install the sensor on my Itron digital meter. The guide template it includes was excellent and the instructions were very clear. The display can be programmed for just about any combination of billing rates and it had no difficulty at all receiving the signal 150-ish feet away.

Pros: - Easy installation. - Great price (got it for $25 on Amazon) - Flexible configuration for different power billing structures.

Cons: - No ability to connect to a PC for data logging.
