Real reviews from some of our 350,000 PowerCost monitor users

  • “Pretty accurate and awesome product - predict electric bill....It is a great tool that helps gauge how much power I am utilizing and how to also determine how to reduce power consumption. I would recommend this product to those who like to know how much your future bill will cost, how much energy you are using at any time and how to conserve by shutting off devices that use power. The device can even work across the house on the opposite side of where the meter is located.“

    • Jason (amazon.com) on June 3rd
  • “This is a great system to find out exactly how much energy you are using and or wasting. the estimating feature is right on if you input your cost per KW including any fuel charges and taxes.“

    • Amazon Customer on June 3rd
  • “A piece of cake to install, took all but 10 minutes. Is a great tool to help to learn the KW consumption of appliances. neat feature is outside temp reading. the outside meter transmitter has gone through a few heavy rain storms with no problem so far. The reason for a 4 star and not 5 is it doesn't pan out too well with our Net Metering meter.“

    • DM (amazon.com) on June 2nd
  • “A money saver! This device has not only helped change consumption behaviour but has also saved me quite a bit of money. It is easy to install and you can immediately see how much energy you are consuming every minute.“

    • Nancy on January 13th, 2016
  • “Easy setup and it was raining most of Sunday through Wed. but it works great. I also decided to order the Bridge Hub so I can plot the electric use with my smart phone or tablet.“

    • Birdman84 (Amazon.com) December 13th, 2015
  • “I am very happy with this product and the support. We found that our energy bills (electricity side) were double and triple what our friends were paying for similar sized homes, with similar lifestyles. I can now see in near real time what the impact is of shutting down various electrical devices in my home with ease. I am not sure how I would be able to do this without this device.“

    • Adam November 30th, 2015
  • “Best Power Monitoring product line out there :). I love that I now can now review my electricity usage on my phone or web page. This is a step up from only having a desktop display unit that did not store history.“

    • Martin August 7th, 2015
  • “Shipped quickly, installed easily, works like a charm! The appliance feature is super handy and well as the outside temp :)“

    • Greg July 9th, 2015
  • “Giving 5 stars for the support I received from the manufacturer. The phone support was very helpful and followed up with the right answers. If you have a non-smart meter I highly recommend this product to track your energy demand.“
