Trying to shave electricity bills? Black and Decker's Energy Saver Power Monitor can help.
It provides real-time information on how much energy you are using and how much it is costing you. That gives a good picture of which appliances and light fixtures are power hogs.
The monitor consists of two parts: a weatherproof sensor that affixes to your power meter and a digital base station. Once the sensor unit is mounted, it sends power usage data to the base station wirelessly.
The base station can display current energy usage in kilowatts or dollars per hour. It also keeps track of how much energy has been used since the beginning of the month and provides an estimate of what the electricity bill will be at the end of the month based on average energy use.
The monitor unit is compatible with most electric meters with a visible spinning wheel or an optical data port.
