The Eco-Eye Mini electricity monitor is a British made and designed real time electricity monitor that will monitor the total amount of electricity being consumed by your home and display the information in a user friendly way. The Eco-Eye Mini also calculates your greenhouse gas emissions and allows you view both current and historical usage.
The Eco-Eye Mini has a full range of functions that makes it highly competitive in the field of real-time electricity monitoring. It is very simple to use and comes configured from the factory with UK settings. Savings made using the Eco-Eye Mini are based on education. It will show you in Kilowatts or cost the values per hour, day, month and year. This will let you see how much electricity an appliance uses and how expensive it really is to operate. Because the Mini also stores historical information, you can scroll back through your past consumption to find out how big a saving you have made. One of the unique features of the Eco-Eye Mini is that you can select which channel the transmitter and receiver operate on from a selection of 30. This will avoid interference with similar units that your neighbours may have.
How it works
As with most electricity monitors, a sensor is clipped around the live feed from your electricity supply (no electrician required) and plugged into a transmitter. This signal is then received on the Eco-Eye Mini. The signal can be picked up about 100m away in free space or about 30m through walls. The main Eco-Eye Mini display unit is battery powered and will last up to six months. There is a low battery warning symbol that will display when the batteries need changing and another symbol that displays when it has a link with the transmitter.
