How does this smart meter works ?
The EnergyHub Starter Kit consists of a touch screen dashboard and temperature control unit. The two devices communicate using a low-power ZigBee wireless link. The touch screen dashboard also talks to your electric or gas meter to display your home’s total energy use (as long as your utility has installed a modern “smart meter” with wireless capability).
