So we have had one fitted, and obviously I was very keen to see the benefits of having the system, so I bought an OWL CM160 to try and monitor the electric usage.
The software that comes with the OWL is ok, however doesn't really have much functionality other than displaying historic/realtime usage.
So my intention is to, output the data collected from the OWL to a file that can be read/visualised by external sources, then use this to remotely monitor the data, ideally from my iphone, android phone, or my ipad via apps that I will build.
I intend to hook up another OWL monitor to measure Solar generated power against the house consumption so I can compare the 2.
I will break this up into stages as I go through the project.
