Extend the range of your Current Cost EnviR
One of our wholesale customers has been kind enough to share with us an interesting observation regarding the range of the EnviR:
Range of the EnviR (line of sight) = 112m Range of the EnviR when it’s sat in a metal meter box = 30m
He has bought a waterproof box from Jaycar (part number= HB6402) and mounted the transmitter outside his metal meter box, but inside this waterproof box, which has extended the range of his system.
Many thanks to Andrew Goodfellow at Aussie Home Inventories for this useful tip.
SmartNow was established in 2009 to bring the Current Cost range of energy monitoring products to Australia and New Zealand.
We believe that the majority of people will not change their habits unless there is a financial benefit in doing so, and hence the introduction of the Current Cost ENVI and TREC.
These fantastic energy monitors will almost certainly pay for themselves within six months in the average Australian home... and in the average Australian business, they can pay for themselves in a matter of days. One customer saved a MegaWatt-hour (worth approximately $150) in the first five days of installing his ENVI... all whilst running his business completely normally.
We're not asking you to stop using electricity... we're just giving you a tool to help you stop WASTING electricity... and money.
