The Wattson

What does Wattson do? To quote the Sunday Times:
" The techno-boxes festooned about most living rooms mean electricity is being consumed faster than a Russian gas baron can neck caviar. The Wattson enbles you to see exactly how much you are using in real time and can help cut down those bills. Once a monitoring sensor has been (easily) clamped onto the cable leading from your home's meter, the 7in wide Wattson box shows total electricity consumption in either watts or £'s. It's lights change from blue to red to show how decadent your power usage is.
Cheaper meters abound , but few are as stylish or fun."

With both numbers and colours, Wattson by DIYKyoyo shows you how much electricity your home is using at any given moment.
Wattson can also store up to 4 weeks of energy-use history which can be downloaded to your computer and viewed using software soon to be available from our website.
How does it work?
Information from a transmitter attached to your electricity meter or fuse box is beamed directly to your wattson which instantly displays your current usage.
In fact, for such an ingenious device, wattson is really easy to install and even easier to use and the instructions are completely free of techno-babble.
