Power Monitoring

This looks like a really interesting new system that I’d really love to get into.

The Greener Grass: Concept – Current State

This is an automation system that does remote control of sockets, but the killer feature is that it also monitors and reports the power consumption of those units! I’d love to be able to do that, it’s one of those things I’m starting to get interested in, how to make my tech more green.

For me making changes means understanding the current situation, to do that I’d need to measure my power output.


Also today I watched this video from MS Technet Edge about working out how much power your kit uses. They use a great little bit of tech to do their monitoring…I wonder how much I could get my consumption down to?….I wonder what my consumption is?

What do you think?
