Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Kilowatts is an easy-to-use tool for measuring your home electrical power use in real time. Kilowatts allows you to take precise measurements from the electric meter outside your home and gives you immediate feedback on your energy use.
The Kilowatts meter reader is a great tool to help you lower your utility bills and increase the energy efficiency of your home. See how much electricity is being used during different family activities. Find out what the energy wasters in your home are. Measure the energy savings from replacing or changing the settings on your appliances, installing compact fluorescent light bulbs or making other changes to your home.
Kilowatts does not require that you alter or even touch your electric meter. You simply need to time the rotation of the dial in the meter. (Please note that Kilowatts works only with a conventional electric meter with a rotating disc that indicates power use. It cannot be used with the newer, digital electrical meters.)
To set up Kilowatts to take accurate readings, just enter a single number that can be found printed on the front of your electric meter. Then measure your energy use anytime you wish with two taps on the screen of your iPhone or iPod Touch. Kilowatts reports the number of Watts of electrical power that your home is currently using.
If your electric meter has a number labeled "Kh" printed on it, you can use Kilowatts.
Kilowatts makes monitoring your home energy use easy!
What's New in Version 1.1
Optional 'flashlight' mode uses a white background to illuminate your power meter and make it easier to take measurements at night.
Great little app
Very basic and easy to use , however it would be to track and or have a history of khw use for hourly, daily and so on and output it to a chart or graph, and to input your current khw rate for ever better tracking and managment of your energy use.
Great little app!
A divide by 10 or 20 button would be cool on the result page to save time.
History with time + day would also be cool.
Love how easy it is to use and find my watt usage. Just what I needed! Thanks!!!! Can't wait for updates.
