Mio

As far as I am aware energy meters work on measuring the magnetic fields which all cables have which carry an electric current and converted in the software. Then transfere by wireless to the readout unit. Looking at your link I cannot tell how easily it is to fit/remove the bit that wraps around the cable.Although not designed to read individual appliances,I cannot see a reason why this cannot be done but will depend upon what I have just said . My own meter ( not an OWL)is very difficult to remove from the cable once it is on ( which was free off Scotish power) Don,t get confused with my plug in type. Hope this makes sense/helps

I watched a programme the other day Dave where a client was given what looked like an Owl Meter which she then used to test each individual Household Appliance ie Cooker /TV etc.

My plug in multi meter will read individual Appliances only IF they can be plugged into it meaning those on the Pond wired directly into the Blagdon switch box/plus Cooker etc will be exempt.
