The Efergy Energy Saving Meter has been developed to make it easy for you to measure and understand the amount of electricity you are using. The monitor records electricity consumption and converts it into a monetary value, based on the cost price of your electricity. This is recorded by day, week and month, and updates every six seconds, so you can easily see the cost of turning on the tv or making a cup of coffee. Data is stored in the internal memory, and past data can be seen by scrolling through the records.

[COLOR=DarkSlateBlue]The box contains:[/COLOR]
* 1 x Efergy Sensor
* 1x Transmitter
* 1 x Display Unit
* 2 x Velcro Fixing Pads

Cheers just ordered one. I understand the efergy has a memory which is a useful feature over the owl instant readout. Could be wrong though.

How do you save energy with this? Doesn't it just shows you how much you use? Where is the saving?
#5
If you're ordering the OWL for £24.95 with the X5WFF dont.

Order it with something else, (like 2 50p Dubble Bars) and use the XSTYLE code and it still costs £24.95.

I bought a similar one a while back - completely useless. I hoped it would help my wife realise how much money is wasted by leaving appliances/lights on when you are not in the room, how much the tumble dryer costs etc. I found it quite useful except I already try to turn things off, hang washing on the line etc so it didn't really change my behaviour. My wife on the other hand never looked at it even though she claimed to regularly. The crunch was when the batteries ran out and I didn't replace them, two weeks later I berated my wife for not looking at the meter and she said "oh yes I do!" followed by "oh it doesn't seem to be working" I haven't bothered to waste new batteries on it.

Now if it was a device you could strap round the neck that gave a painful electric jolt when the wearer walked out of a room having left the tv/digibox/stereo and all the lights on or used the tumble dryer on a sunny day then it might be very useful.

Totally agree. A gimmick that will just get ignored after a day or two and you're £25 down!

Do people really watch this and run around the house trying to see what has caused peaks?

A wattage usage meter for plugs is far more useful :thumbsup:

Or the £10 byebye standby that was on deal from tesco would have been better. With a fun side, to remotely turn on/off your lamp lol.


Hot deal tho, but these thing still expensive at the reduced price.

I thought the same when I read the title , How the heck does this save you money ? It does'nt switch anything off that you may have left on .Now ,that's energy saving . I'll just keep my money , thanks

These are also not very good (Google it or look on MSE).

The OWL is an old model and there are better out there (like Efergy). This has no memory, so you can't store data.

If you've got Economy 7, you need a second sensor clamp, which usually means buying 2 units.

Snake oil that's sold by shops that won't be here in months, rip-off scam artists (power companies) and a government scrabbling around looking for ideas.

The only way this could save you money is if you unplugged your fridge freezer after seeing the reading or worst still buy a new FF which would mean someone would have to make it, ship it and deliver it. Now, if everyone done that... we'd have no environment left to save.

Helps you identify and understand where your electricity is going (e.g. standby or how much that old fridge is using) - and goes on to help you change your "behaviour" and ultimately reduce your electricity usage. Persuaded me to buy the remote off gadgets and, more importantly, replace an ageing fridge - saving lots now (three quarters of former electricity use in past year = loads of money saved and nearly fully paid for my new energy efficient fridge freezer). You should save at least the cost of the monitor in your first year of use. Good price for the monitor. Hot.

There is an offer starting in today's Scottish Daily Mail where you can get what looks like the exact same model free (rebranded 'Scottish gas') by collecting 8 tokens over the next two weeks. If you are a Scottish Gas customer you can also get a free 'Standby Saver' which detects when you switch an appliance off by remote control and cuts all power to that appliance. Don't know if the English Daily Mail are doing any similar offers.
#14
I have found one of these useful and money saving , being in a house of all electric i can identify what my daily use is. It also gives the chance to identify if something of high usage gets turned on by the kids or left on after use as it will show a higher figure than a average one.
#15
I was given one by eon and I do find it a useful tool.

I am deffo more on top of switcing things, it just helps you to be me more aware of how much power things use.
#16
Quote..... how much it costs you, and the level of harmful C02 emissions you are contributing to the environment through your electricity usage.

I guess you could argue how much harmful CO2 was created from the production of this unit for the profit of the manufacturer, is that ethical?

They have additional sensors for each of the monitors on the site, which will work with Economy 7 - £9.95 each. They're also needed if you have a 2- or 3-phase supply, which aren't that common in domestic installations but they do exist.

Personally a plugin monitor is more useful for me, but I can see how it wouldn't work for some things like lamps, or fridges or washers that are wired straight into the wall rather than on a plug.

Ordered one of the OWL's from this site weeks ago and it never arrived. Im still trying to get my money back form them :!:
#19
I'd recommend getting one of these because you'll be surprised how much electricity you are using even when you think everything is off. I've reduced this minimum power by 40W which is @1kWh/day or @10p/day so £36/year, probably more as energy prices are going up all the time.

That ought to motivate you to stop leaving TV/DVD/PC/printer/Xbox/PS3/router etc etc in standby and either switch off at the socket or invest in something like the Bye Bye standby remote control.

You might not make money out of this quickly but longer term it should help your bills and you're doing a small bit to saving the planet :thumbsup:

How an you tell if you have a 3 phase or economy 7 installation? is economy 7 when you get a different tariff overnight?

Yes, economy 7 has much cheaper overnight tariffs, usually in combination with a timer on the immersion heater, and storage heaters. Your bill will mention the nighttime rate separately to the daytime rate. For example, my supplier (Eon) charges 5.5 p per kWh at night, compared to 16.3 p per kWh during the day (after the 1st 900 kWh)

You'll also have 2 separate meters to read, which is why you'll need 2 sensors.

If you don't know whether you've got a 3 phase supply, you've almost certainly not got one.
