We've made it easy to set up and monitor your home's usage in real-time with energyhive. All you need is an energyhive hub, a broadband internet connection and a monitoring clamp.
The energyhive hub with a compatible electricity clamp and transmitter is all you need to use the service. The price of £29.99 is quickly justified - studies show people reduce their electricity consumption by up to 20% when they monitor their use. If your annual bill is £400 this would mean you could save up to £80/year.

Once your equipment has been installed and registered your home or office's data is made available to you through our dashboard.
Our hub is compatible with the efergy and CurrentCost electricity monitors. In the UK these are often distributed by utilities - youmay already own one. See our list of compatible devices.
The hub is not compatible with The Owl or Onzo real-time display devices.
Place up to five sensors within 30 meters of an energyhive hub to get real-time sensor measurements. The clamp and transmitter count as one sensor so if you are using these you can only have four more sensors.
We offer two energyhive sensors:
Includes a battery.
* Note this is not compatible with the Wattson/ Solar hub.
How it works
energyhive receives the electricity readings via your broadband every six seconds showing the exact amount of electricity that your home or office is using.
The data is held within a secure environment and anonymously aggregated - no-one else will be able to identify your individual electricity consumption profile unless you permit it.
We keep a long history of the data (over two years) to allow you to see patterns of behaviour and thus identify opportunities to reduce your energy consumption.
The energyhive hub costs £29.99. We sell the efergy monitor and clamp for £24.99. You may already have a compatible CurrentCost or efergy monitor and you can often purchase them on eBay (they were provided free by several utilities).
Studies show you can save 20% on your electricity bill when you can monitor your actual consumption in real-time. Buy now, bring your bills down and do your bit to help the environment.
Important: If you know of other monitors which you would like us to add, please contact us.
