The wireless range is good and the display on the hand held unit is big and easy to read. Setting up the receiver/handset is simple, and several of the default values were already correct for UK making life even easier.
However, I was less than convinced about its accuracy. So I made up a short extension lead with the neutral wire brought out in a loop for the meter to clamp around, and I tried some simple tests.
1. A fitting containing four 15Watt low-energy fluorescent bulbs - a nominal 60Watts: the meter suggested they were taking 111Watts, almost double the rated power!
2. A freezer rated at 100Watts: it showed 63Watts. Hmm.
3. A plasma screen rated at 300Watts displaying a static test pattern: it flipped between two readings, either 223Watts or 447Watts! What?!
4. A kettle rated at 2000Watts: it went from 2100Watts to 1900Watts, cold to boil, exactly as expected.
I have just compared the readings on my electricity meter with those of the CM160 for 24hour's usage, and the CM160 was 28% high. All of my lighting is low energy fluorescents (but see Addendum 11 for 2014 update), so perhaps they are the main reason for the excess power reading. But I don't know for certain, and I guess it might be something to do with power factors.Read more ›
I am really impressed, not just by the units ability to record data and transfer it to the PC but also by the exceptionally helpful customer service I have had from OWL. I definitely recommend this product, it has certainly made me aware of which items use the most electricity and made me much more conscious of using off peak where I can and switching things off when I am not using them.
The OWL meter is a data logger so will record and store values of power usage at 1 minute resolution for up to 1 month. When connected to a computer the meter will give a live output every 10 seconds and the stored data is an average of 6 values. I found it very simple to set up and the connectivity between the sender (in my roof for the solar array) and the display has acceptible range; the display works anywhere in the house. The software was installed under windows 7 (64bit) and worked first time; I seamed to have less problems than Richard Stevens with the software; I guess they have brought out a better version with some fixes.
The monitor display shows the instantaneous power usage (or CO2/cost) and the power usage since the meter was reset along with the date and temperature.
As a simple meter it has some limitations compared to the Efergy Elite; actually because it does more technically. In the Efergy Elite you can easily review with a single button press the power usaged today, yesterday and so on for 1 week. The same goes for weekly usage and monthly usage. The OWL requires you to press buttons about 7 times to set up the start date and date range before it display the usage for the day/week/month/year. If you just want to see what power you used today/yesterday then it is tedious and requires the instructions every time due to the complexity of multiple button presses.Read more ›
