How this smart meter will work?
the Onzo kit consists of a sensor and a display screen, the sensor is a clip which attaches to one of the cables coming from the electricity meter – this sensor can be installed without any special knowledge ( in case you’re wondering). the sensor gets the power from where its attached, so you will never need to change the batteries, it consumes a very low amount of energy – so your electrical bill won’t be impacted for having such device. it stores up to 10 years of data. the sensor sends the the energy data wirelessly to the display device, which analyze the data, and make it easily readable to you.
Both the display and the sensor can be recycled. They are delivered in compact packaging that fits in most standard mailboxes, which also reduces the environmental impact of their distribution.
