Eyedro Product Review: Wireless Home Electricity Monitor 

Eyedro product review – here is what Paul King, editor at pocketables.com has to say about Eyedro’s Wireless Home Electricity Monitor:

“The Eyedro Wireless Home Electricity Monitor is a device that lets you monitor your electricity use by the minute from a web page. There’s also a wired version of the Eyedro Home Electricity Monitor should you wish to save $60 that appears to be the same equipment and service, and they have a version more suited to businesses, but I’m reviewing the wireless flavor.

You can access the info on any device with a modern browser, and if you have an Echo you can ask Alexa what your energy usage is.”

Commercial Tenant Electricity Sub-Metering Dispute: Eyedro Case Study

Commercial Tenant Electricity Sub-Metering Dispute: Eyedro Case Study

Commercial Tenant Electricity Sub-Metering: Landlord Feels That Tenant Is Using More Power than Budgeted in Lease Agreement

In this case study we illustrate how Eyedro has been put to use resolving a commercial tenant electricity sub-metering dispute between the tenant and the landlord of a large commercial building.  As can be seen from the Eyedro real-time electricity monitoring graph data above, a tenant of a commercial building displayed an excessive electricity usage pattern that persisted for 12 hour periods.  This usage was very much out of line with that of the other tenants in the building.

After some investigation it was discovered that the tenant was testing some power hungry new technology.

Via Eyedro, the  landlord was able to show the tenant their actual electricity usage as well as the time period (in this case during peak electricity rate hours).

Because the landlord was sub-metering each tenant and tracking power consumption with an Eyedro Electricity Monitoring system, they were able to pinpoint the tenant’s unusual electricity consumption.  The tenant’s commercial lease was then renegotiated in a way that was fair to both parties.

The landlord ultimately recovered more than $1200 in electricity costs per year from this one customer alone!
