Esensors to Develop a Wireless AC Power Meter for Energy Monitoring and Screen Time Tracking: A Crowdfunding Project

Esensors is developing a Bluetooth enabled AC meter which slips over existing plugs and continuously logs the load energy usage. It is ideal for checking energy consumption of devices in the home or office by smart phone and also for monitoring usage patterns of TV, video games and computers.

Esensors Inc. is developing a non-contact AC power meter with logging capability and read by smart phone. It is aimed at home/office energy and screen time monitoring.

This non-contact power meter is slipped onto the plug for the appliance or other electrical load being monitored. The load voltage, current and power are continuously monitored and the time of changing loads logged. The logged data is read and analyzed by a smart phone or tablet via Bluetooth. It is deal for monitoring screen time of a TV, video game or PC and also is valuable for establishing energy usage of appliances, including phantom loads. The development will be supported as a crowd-funded project hosted by Indiegogo. Wi-Fi will be an added option as a stretch goal.

It is a thin, credit card size meter which slips over a plug. Both AC current and voltage measured without contact with the electrical leads (patent pending technology). Both immediate power and averaged power logged over days or weeks is available. It is capable of point-of-load metering for the smart grid.

Interested parties can support the development by providing funding through advance payments as a crowd-funded project hosted by Indiegogo. One meter will be provided as a perk for $49 ($69 list).
