  • Manage your energy and electricity bills more efficiently
  • Gain real time feedback on how much power you're using in your home
  • Set alarms to alert you if your power usage is too high
  • Set energy efficient appliances to interact with your smart meter to alter usage to suit your lifestyle and manage electricity costs
  • Set a timer to turn off 'non-critical' appliances when not in use
  • Dynamically select suitable electricity tariff plans through your electricity retailer
  • Experience better supply of power to your home/business and fewer outages
