The application is new and a fair start. It need a few tweeks to make it a more useful tool for its users. By far, an immediate improvement would be a function that allows the user the ability to map/self identify items using power within the home. Thanks for your efforts and feel free to contact me to provide feedback where necessary.
First, the app opens up to a page where you choose your power meter and has nothing else. It has no usage information, unlike the iPad which shows how much you’re using. It’s a pointless screen. The second page shows a graph, and calls current usage “always on” which isn’t intuitive. The 1 week view of usage is simply a curve. A bar graph is more intuitive. For such a simple app it fails to meet expectations and offers zero alternatives.
The app now shows usage information like the iPad and the charts seem to have been updated.
Gets the job done
Easy setup with PG&E. Starts collecting data immediately. App interface is rather basic, but website gives better insights. Power readings are collected within about 15-20 seconds, which is good enough for me. Would be great to have a tiered cost model rather than a flat rate, but generally I’m just interested in power consumption.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
