That way, you can see how much energy you're using at any given time.

And you can also see how much one appliance, light or other device can change the overall reading.

Neurio also shows an itemized usage summary for appliances over 400W, so you can see exactly how your A/C, oven, toaster or other device is affecting your consumption and monthly bill.
