I wasn't sure where to post this, maybe Deej can start a new category for us nerds :)
I'm moving into a geothermal heated house soon, and want to really track my electric usage. The builder added a second power meter in the basement off the circuit breaker panel, so he could record the readings off the geothermal heat exchanger. This is great, but requires going into the basement and writing down the numbers.
Does anyone know of an electric meter that could be installed into a panel to monitor the usages on a particular circuit (pipe dream would be to have a reading for each circuit in the house to see how one's living utilizes power)
I'm trying to find a product to do this (I know there's P3's Kill a Watt, but that's for appliances, I'm looking at the overall circuit). If it can be connected to my network in the house, I can record the data constantly (ever second if necessary) and then have a realtime usage graph, and then daily/monthly, etc graphs of the power consumption.
My goal is to build a "home page" hehehe for the house, showing the usage on the geothermal system, readings from an outdoor weather station (so that later data can be plotted against weather conditions). There's more ideas too, but they're not related to this thread, so I don't know if I should mention it all in here, or if Deej should make a new section for data nerds like me :)
