Video: Monitoring Electrical Usage with Bidgely
In a previous post, I shared info about monitoring your realtime electrical usage via a smart meter and hardware from the home automation startup Bidgely. Below is a video from my testing of Bidgely. This includes info on the Rainforest Eagle, as well as a demo of Bidgely’s web interface.
I’ve been using Bidgely for more than six months now, and despite some issues with data connectivity to my smart meter, it’s been a great service. As I mentioned in my post about the Arduino Tre, I even found a way to integrate with Bidgely to pull realtime usage data into my home automation system for use with other parts of the system. More on this project soon…
