The PowerCost Monitor™ WiFi Edition consists of the WiFi Bridge accessory and the PowerCost Monitor™ by Blue Line Innovations or the Black & Decker® Power Monitor™. The WiFi Bridge allows consumers who have a PowerCost Monitor™ or Black & Decker® Power Monitor™ to view and manage their own household energy usage data through various free online and smart phone application partners. The PowerCost Monitor™ provides the real time energy data and connectivity to these partners. Our commitment is to continue to partner with quality applications that offer a range of services. As a user you will be able to experiment with these applications, changing from one to another at any time, until you find the right application for you and your family.
If you already have a PowerCost Monitor™, the PowerCost Monitor™ Wifi Bridge can enable you to feed your personal real time electricity data into free applications such as myEragy, PlotWatt or People Power. See below for additional partner detail. The Bridge works through your router to connect to the Internet. You choose which portal you want your information directed to and if at any time you want to move to the other portal, all you need to do is follow the directions to that portal.
Connecting through the Internet or smartphone to these free application partners will let you find even more ways to save money each and every month. You can track your current usage and compare to historical patterns, learn how others have saved money and energy – including others in your own region. You can also connect with the entire connected community, and share methods to start saving today, or develop a project plan based on your own profile and on how much you want to save.
