Great hardware, average app

I have tried a number of electricity monitors (Loop also offer a gas monitor that I haven't used) and Loop is easily the best. The hardware is reliable, well designed, and with a remarkable reach from transmitter to receiver. However, the web and app service needs to be developed further. Basic .csv download of your data is available but only in arbitrary segments (hourly usage for the last day, daily for the last week, weekly for the last month, and monthly for that last quarter). The iOS app is not really a proper app, rather an encapsulated form of their website. Real time and summary data takes a long time to load and push notifications are not available.

A more inspired app needs to be produced but the hardware and customer service is brilliant.

Awesome product, but try the new app rather

I’ve used Loop for the last few years and have found them to be reliable and add pertinent, timely, excellent titbits of insight.

But...

The app and email reports, while really informative and as I said, insightful, were in desperate need of some UI polishing.

Thankfully, there is a new app available, which looks MUCH better.

Glad to see developments underway!

I hope the reports have been updated too.

Lastly, the hardware has apparently been updated too, which was also desperately needed. It is incredibly reliable, but looked a bit home made, with a lacklustre mini Ethernet jack leaving it dangling like an abandoned car wreck, from the side of our sideboard.

I will update my review once the new reports come through.

Preferable to any Smart Meter

I’ve been using Loop for almost three years now to monitor both gas and electricity usage. It’s independent of energy supplier or government quango and so is trustworthy in collecting and presenting results. There’s no hidden agenda (smart meters can facilitate differential charging across demand levels).

Signing up results in receiving a gas meter reader and electricity supply monitor soon after downloading the app. These come with full instruction for fixing to current meters, both digital and analogue (dials and wheels). Readings reach the smartphone or tablet via WiFi and a dongle to plug into one’s router.

The variety of usage interpretations is good and even relates consumption to external temperature. Visuals are clear and offer analyses and interpretation. However, there’s no easy way to export results to (eg) a spreadsheet for more detailed tracking, hence 4 stars.

A big bonus is being able to compare different suppliers’ charges for actual fuel usage and to change companies if a significant advantage is spotted.

All the benefits of smart meters seem to be addressed but without the risk of being conned by variable tariffs.
