Ratings and Reviews
Works but very basic and looks amateur
I have this app to monitor my energy consumption and solar panel generation. It works ok but only gives very basic information and pretty much only allows you to look at the current day. Sadly I find that it looks very dated and amateur in design - not sure how old the app/website actually is. Hopefully they will update it soon with something a bit more modern looking and change it to provide more/better information. Being able to view any day in detail would be nice and it would be much better if the graphs included some labels so that you could at least see when a particular peak/dip occurred. Not seen it in use but I have already looked at switching over to the Smappee product which "looks" better.
Lacks basic features for smart home and hidden fees
Been using heating and electricity monitoring since 2014. In 2014 it was fantastic product as remote control of heating was almost unique however times change and more competition is about but the product and the service has remained stagnant. The app does not support basic smarthome functions like geofencing (e.g. turn off heating when everyone is away) and does not have Alexa/Google Home integration nor any plans to introduce such integration.
To cap it all Owl will on 1st Jan 2018 introduced a subscription fee of £10 a year after warranty ends (2 years) to provide basic service. If you don’t pay the fee the products stop working.
App needs updating
App has basic controls & provides real time data from electricity, heating & hot water systems. I have found the control features to work well.
The app needs to display graphs & allow access to other controls such as adjusting the timeclocks, which currently are only accessible through the Dashboard.
Perhaps graphs for current portrait view (either Elecricity, Heating or Hot Water) could displayed automatically by rotating the device to landscape view.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
