From smart tech to energy savvy alternatives - that don't cost the earth

Get Smart with Smart Plugs
Control almost any appliance with an on/off switch with a simple tap of your phone.

What is it? 
Smart plugs allow you to control your devices remotely, making it easier to switch on (and off, when you forget the heating) those appliances even when you’re not at home. 

How do they work? 
They are controlled via an app, and you control your appliances power with a simple touch of a button, saving on your electricity bills.

Get an Energy Monitor
Tells you in real time, where and how you use your electricity.

What is it? 
An energy monitor talks to your electricity meter and tells you where and how you use electricity, in real time. 

Easy home setup

How to Install

The setup can be done easily at home. A sensor fits easily onto your meter whilst the digital display unit will plug into a household power outlet that you can view. As well as being able to take several time bands, they are simple to set up and program yourself at home. Data can be viewed as days, weeks or months which can help you see patterns of high and low usage, too.

Note: One monitor works with one meter so if you have more than one meter, you will need multiple monitors.

Switch to LEDs
Old and inefficient bulbs could be costing you more than you think.

Did you know? 
Lighting makes up for around 5% of an average home’s total energy bill. Switching to LEDs could save you up to £15 per year per bulb. Now when you think the *average home has around 67 lights within it, that adds up to a lot of potential savings.
