EnBW is Stromzähler twitter

Pt 2033

A German power company is having their power meters Twitter, what a great idea 🙂

Translated version….

Unusual distribution Offensive: The supplier EnBW wants its future electricity can twitter. Kunden sollen so genau über den eigenen Verbrauch informiert werden – und damit Energie sparen. Customers should be as accurate about their own consumption to be informed – and thus save energy. Hamburg – Das Unternehmen Yello Strom, eine hundertprozentige Tochter des Energiekonzerns EnBW Hamburg – The company Yello Strom, a wholly owned subsidiary of energy group EnBW , will seine Stromzähler künftig Twitter-fähig machen. , Wants its future electricity Twitter compatible. The gauges could be the consumption of individual customers by the minute on the internet.

Customer service on all channels “We have taken the first twitternde prototype developed and tested successfully,” said Yello current boss Martin Vesper SPIEGEL ONLINE. Was letztlich dazu führt, dass der Zähler eine Nachricht twittert, steht noch zur Diskussion. What ultimately leads to the counter a message twittert, is still under discussion. Vieles sei aber denkbar. Much, however, conceivable. So könnten beispielsweise unregelmäßig hohe Ausschläge beim Verbrauch einen Tweet an den Kunden auslösen. For example, the irregular high rashes consumers Tweet trigger to the customer. Or the counter chirped once daily for a summary of the costs.

Thanks Toxin20!

Tweet-a-Watt is a DIY wireless power monitoring system. The project uses an ‘off the shelf’ power monitor called the Kill-a-Watt and adds wireless reporting. Each  plug transmits the power usage at that outlet to a central computer receiver. The receiver can then log, graph and report the data. This pack contains nearly everything* necessary to build a single outlet monitor and receiver. To monitor additional outlets, you will need an add-on transmitter pack. One outlet can monitor up to 1500 Watts.
