After last year’s electricity price hike, electricity bills will be even more painful this winter and the last thing you need is a surprise at the end of each month. To help you keep track of your usage through the month, so you can cut back before things get out of hand, Efergy has released a simple-to-use electricity monitor, the Elite Classic.
How it works
A mini CT sensor is clipped onto the live feed of your breaker panel. A lead from the sensor and a mains adaptor are plugged into the energy transmitter, which then wirelessly sends real-time data to the energy monitor. The monitor converts the data and displays the demand in kilowatts of energy being consumed at any given time.
The Elite Classic monitor can be programmed for various rates, ensuring that the cost of your energy is accurate. It updates every 6 seconds, to display how much energy is consumed in real time and how much it will cost if the ‘energy now’ load is maintained for a period of one day.
The Elite Classic displays your average energy usage per day, week and month and with the built-in memory function it is easy to track your energy usage and how it changes over time.
The Efergy Elite Classic Energy Monitor is available at Loot.co.za for R949.
