Really good, solid, thoughtful well designed product

Very impressed by Loop, very easy to setup, well thought out and implemented.
The sensors for the Gas and Electric meters have a 15yr battery in them, meaning they will run until Smart Metering is fully deployed in the UK.
The network device that connects to your Internet Router and has a Cat5 through port built in which means it effectively doesn't take up any of the limited Cat5 ports on your router, if you have no ports free, unplug one device and plug into Loop and plug Loop into the now free space.
The software is all web based, so the Loop iOS app effectively just logs you into the website. The downside is that the app is not as pretty as a well written iOS app, but the upside is that you can access your meter readings anywhere in the world where you have Internet. Also because all the data is in the cloud Loop shows how your energy usage compares against other similar Loop users.
What I really love, and your energy supplier will hate is that after 30 days of usage Loop starts advising you on how much will save by changing to another supplier. You can change using USwitch which is built into the Loop App.
