I have just installed the Envir smartR Monitor,
I cannot find the XXimp/kWh number on my meter?
Its not optical approx 25years old and has a rotating disk
Page 12 of the instalation instructions talks about

" the LED inside the optical reader will flash at the same time as the one on the electrical meter"
I dont have an LED on the house electrical meter???

Hi Ray

Unfortunately the OptiSmart only works with LED type meters. Details on the product page: http://currentcost.com/product-optismart.html

We do have a 30 day return policy for the OptiSmart, which allows customers to try OptiSmart on a non supported meter. Please email helpme [at] currentcost .com to arrange the return/refund.

Hi Ray, welcome to the real world where most/many meters are the type you have. IMO you don't really need a fancy meter, tho' you could try asking your elec supplier to fit one (it may cost!).

Assuming you don't then just buy a bridge or connect via your clamp and use the free software available, see cc's site or other stuff on internet to estimate your elec usage, like 99.9% of us do. eg currentchart
