Product Overview

143 is a Tweet-a-Watt starter pack which is DIY wireless power monitoring system. The project uses an off the shelf power monitor called the Kill-a-Watt and adds wireless reporting. Each plug transmits the power usage at that outlet to a central computer receiver. The receiver can then log, graph and report the data. This pack contains nearly everything (except P3 Kill-a-Watt) necessary to build a single outlet monitor and receiver. To monitor additional outlets, user will need an add on transmitter pack. One outlet can monitor up to 1500W. The kit is unassembled, and requires some light soldering to piece together.
