I am a newby although not new my self - 2 score & 10 + 2 -
As you may have realised from my username I am not in agreement with the spy in the home i.e Smart Metering but am very interested in energy monitoring/conservation. I do have the ‘‘Owl’’ electrical current/energy monitor but would very much like the ability to log/record my energy usage using my desktop.
So before I embark on another project… time on me hands yer see… the overriding question for me is…is it deemed safe too attach sensors to the Domestic Gas Meters ( Area Classification div1, div2, an all that ) yes…in my former life I was in the Oil/Gas Game. I do realise these devices are of low energy, but the ‘‘Meter Man’’ may not think so.
I’ve just come across OEM web site and am looking forward too having a gander whats available…Joe
