This easy-to-use energy saving product, the PowerCost Monitor™ features a large, attractive, counter-top Display Unit that looks like a small electric clock.
Not all Energy Saving Devices are Created Equal!
The PowerCost Monitor™ puts the power of clear, actionable information into your hands. At the push of a button the PowerCost Monitor™ displays, your moment-to-moment and total electricity costs in dollars and cents and in kilowatt hours. The PowerCost Monitor™ can even predict how much money your electricity bill will be for that month based on your immediate electricity usage.
The device will also show your peak energy cost within the last 24 hours – so you know when you are using the most energy. The product also displays the current time and outside temperature and has a battery indicator that lets you know when your battery power is low and a signal indicator lets you know the strength of the signal being received from the Sensor Unit.
• Appliance tab.Want to know how much a certain appliance costs to use? The PowerCost Monitor™ will tell you! Pressing the appliance function on the device will zero out your current energy consumption readings, creating a baseline measure of your power usage at that time. You then simply turn on or off an appliance or fixture(s) and the PowerCost Monitor™ will report the $ or kW impact of that change. Research identified that this is a key feature of the PowerCost Monitor™ energy saving device. This new product feature makes it easy to see how your energy usage habits can turn into energy saving habits.
• Predictive feature. A quick press on the total/est toggle will provide the user, based on actual energy consumption from the last reset, with an estimate of the 30 Day energy consumption totals in $’s or kW’s. Research has identified this to be a significant new feature creating a “wow” factor – either getting an early read on expected 30 Day costs or more fully understanding the positive impact of energy consumption behavior changes in the home.
• Sleep function. Blue Line’s energy saving products have a sleep function that prolongs battery life. In prior models, in the event the monitor and the sensor lost connectivity the sensor would go into “warp speed” mode constantly searching out the signal from the sensor and thus putting an excessive strain on the monitor’s batteries. In the BLI 28000 should the monitor and the sensor lose connectivity the monitor will go into sleep mode – pressing any button on the monitor will bring the monitor back to ready mode.
• Expanded kH factor capability. The BLI 28000 monitor can accommodate kH factors of 0.1 to 99 and thus insure compatibility with high load service homes in North America today.
