I am trying to figure out how to monitor my homes power usage. I can't seem to find any plans, kits or any projects like that. I am wanting to monitor my whole homes power usage, I don't care weather it is wireless or wired. I just want to be able to see what is going on in real time, and log it in some way.
I am looking for something like the Black & Decker EM100B Energy Saver Series Power Monitor, but that just displays it on a stupid display unit. I want a real way to track it like the Wattvisionbut that is just to much money for their product.
I know there is the Tweet-a-watt, but that only does one outlet. I have the P3 Kill A Watt Electricity Load Meter and Monitor so I could easily do it, but I would rather not spend the money on those Xbees, I wouldn't mind if it was a wired system.
Has anyone come across projects like these?
