  2. We have a similar product in the UK called Alertme.com

    It uses a clamp and a energy meter on your main inlet box, and then you can use smartplugs on other devices to see how much each appliance draws. It also doubles up as a great Home Automation system (well kinda) switching on and off appliances when triggered by the system.

  3. TED is one of the better units and does make an effort to be accurate in the power factor and voltage are used.
    I just find the Brultech unit to be even more accurate, gives more channels, because one is not enough with fridges/freezers etc switching on/off to make confusing picture more baffling.

    You can even use channel 7 to hook up and log your gas meter.
