Now the fight against rocketing electricity bills and climate change just got even easier with the new improved OWL wireless electricity monitor. The stylish portable device can help save hundreds of pounds off your electricity bill by providing up to the second information on the exact amount of electricity you are using in pounds and pence. This means you can see the exact financial gain of turning off electrical devices at home. Whether it's turning off at the plug rather than just using standby or simply turning off a light, the OWL shows you the exact cash impact of changing your behaviour, which can be hundreds of pounds for the average home. Building on the success of original OWL, new features include the following: An accumulative function which lets you see your cost accumulate over any period you choose, be it daily, weekly or monthly. You can then start to track changes over time which allows you to fine tune your energy saving strategy even better than before. The new multiple tariff function means you can set your OWL to factor in a range of tariffs (Economy 7, Night-time etc) to create an even more accurate picture of your usage. A much improved battery life now gives up to 24 months with the transmitter & 12 months on the display.

Very good, helped us save around 50% of our electricity costs via looking learning & altering our habits.
highly recommended
#2
If you vote cold could you please tell me where you have found this cheaper
#3
you can get these things for free, british gas, eon and the like :thumbsup:
#4
They are great we have one, and these are not the cheap ones you get for free. For those people who dont want to be tied into a contract they are great.
banned#5
Just turn off things you're not using and save £100's AND £17 :-D

Dont be silly. You dont need a meter to alter your habits.

I have had an owl monitor myself for over 6 months. I bought it new on buy it now for £22 delivered on Ebay.

For the first week or two its interesting to see how much electricity is used by each device, however after a couple of weeks you stop looking as you already know what its going to say.

Common sense measures like using a quick wash on the washing machine and dishwasher etc and energy saving bulbs will reduce your electricity usage and you dont need a monitor to do that.

Dont be silly. You dont need a meter to alter your habits.

depending upon how you live yes you do, primarily as a wake up as to your consumption / wastage of "spare" electricity.. eg turning off / buying faster responding heaters, efficient fridges / freezers, paring down your lighting requirements / utilising cfl or LEd's or efficient halogen types, installing a smaller wattage bulb in a security light / installing led floodlighting.
making sure microwave oven is off when not in use, boiling kettles with correct amount of water in not overloading it, taking kettle off boil befoer it reaches max temp for tea etc.. (say 84-86 deg)
utilising insulation against radiators, placing rads in a less heat leaking area of the room..

deciding to ditch some heating & make more use of low cost logs ((& free)) as fuel.
All these are after looking checking & monitoring our electricity useage since obtaining an owl monitor, the result is in the bills we receive that are substantially reduced & still dropping.

Another point being, after checking out the ongoing heating useage & costs in our dining room I plugged up an airleak behind our outside electricity meter box with foam filler, the prevailing winds & gap behind the electric meter were really counteracting alot of heating effort to maintain a stable useable temperature, this dropped the heating useage in the room by two thirds, which if you think a 3 kw rad on down to 1 then that's substantial, without the owl in place we would have just gone on blindly shelling out every quarter rather than getting pro-active & cutting out waste.
Now go round the rest of a house with the same sort of eye to plugging the "gaps" (as it were) & you have alot of potential to slash your bills.
After that you might lookmore closely at swapping you energy provider if not getting the best deals already, I call myself an energy nazi as it makes you more seasonally minded, checking / changing the freezer's thermostat according to the seasonal requirements relating to ambient temperature, switching idling power sources off, getting rid of sky + boxes in our case & seeking the efficient alternative (Humax's), considering exterior shading as part of our summer cooling instead of relying on lots of air-con..etc
All thge time keeping one eye on our owl to see us getting the base load down..
when we find a deal on a good induction hob then that will help too, as will putting thick insulation round unfinished elements of our hot & cold water pipe runs, extra lagging on our hot water cylinder (to reduce heat losses & reduce the amount of re-heats)
We also have digital temp read-outs in most of the rooms...this makes us consider which room to sit in & possibly heat depending on if we want long or short-term heat (an hour / all night)
It's made me rip out a heater in my office & stick a fleece & hat on instead, as well as looking into properly insulating the office which will then assist in raising the temp in another room / allow on rooms heat source to deal with 2 rooms as a result of airflow changes.

This is the sort of thing an owl may encourage you to look at & tackle instead of pi$$ing money on electricity, in most cases it's cheaper to tackle the jobs as they present themselves spending a few quid hewre & there versus the constant trickle of wasted electric in whatever form for example.

As a wake up call just try using common sense. Everyone I know who has had one of these type of monitors doesn't look at it after a couple of weeks. Sure it may highlight how much power is used when you turn on a light, put the kettle on etc but common sense tells you to make sure the house is properly insulated, draughts blocked up, use quick wash, lower the thermostat by a degree or 2 etc

Then there's the replacement cost (& I'm not just talking £ cost) of the "more efficient" product. Our kitchen has fully integrated appliances which work perfectly well, ok a few years on the older side now but they work. Are you really trying to say that we should replace them all? Hate to think what the payback period alone would be on the replacement cost let alone the effect on the environment of both disposing of the old products AND manufacture of the replacements! Tho' I suspect the other half may like a new kitchen:whistling:

Don't get me wrong we do manage my electricity useage but I don't need a meter to tell us to turn the light off!

Finally, correct me if I'm wrong but don't these monitors use energy, even just a little bit, to show you how much energy you're using! What's the environmental impact if everybody stopped using their energy monitors:idea:

Go on then I'll humour you, tell us all, how many people HAVE altered their habits after visiting their GP and going through 'some meter readings'?

the common sensed ones will alter their habits after a gp visit others can do it after spending few days in ICU.

That didn't answer my question. I asked 'how many'? But I think you're starting to see the point as you mentioned 'common sense'!

You do NOT need the doctor to tell you that you need to maintain a healthy life style, eat healthily, drink in moderation... etc etc. We all know what we need to do to try and stay fit and well it's just that some choose not to. They 'may' alter their lifestyle following a 'scare' but it usually takes something like a health scare to jolt those people into action and it can be too little, too late.

As has been stated by [COLOR="RoyalBlue"]alexander[/COLOR], you do NOT need a meter to alter your habits, you just need to apply some common sense. The same is true with the use of energy around the home.

Got one free from Eon. I didn't need an energy monitor, I'm thrifty, but my husband is looking at it every time he comes through the front door. My one converts usage in to monthly cost on one of it's cycles - if the tumble dryer, washing machine, kettle and two tvs are on it'll say "costing £198 a month", then drops to £4 a month or whatever when I turn them off. Haven't had it long enough to get a true patten, and haven't yet done the thing with the computer, but it's got potential. Setting it up was easier than setting up a new mobile phone. Anyway, a lot less lights, music, tvs, laptops left on in empty rooms.

Is this still on?
It' s £35 in my store. Did anybody else get it at the low price, and if so where?

Thanks
