Aussie Electricity Prices Now Above 50 Cents Per kWh

OUCH! Being on a Time Of Use tariff could be costly, if you are not managing the electricity tariff correctly. 

After all was that not one of the main reasons the electricity retailers sold you the idea of the TOU tariff in the first place, some years ago! So you could manage your tariff and hopefully reduce electricity costs for your family?

Prices on the 1st July 2016 have just gone past the 50 cents per kWh mark, for those times of day when you need the power to cook, heat / cool, or simply feed your family.

The question is this. Is the TOU tariff saving you or costing you more than a comparable flat or tiered rate tariff, when based on your home's usage pattern.

There are three easy ways you can find this out:

1. Get the calculator and the power bills out and do some simple maths
2. Install an electricity monitor with tariff comparison software
3. Send four of your electricity bills to us for analysis

Simple solutions for finding out the best tariff suited to your home's electricity usage patterns, are only a call away. Call now for help.....

Switching 10A Appliances On Off The Smart Way

If you are not aware of the ability to switch on off appliances within the home on auto pilot, here is an update. 

For sometime now Smart 10A switched socket outlets have been available from many hardware stores in Australia. 

A Smart 10A switched socket outlet is a device that plugs into any 10A socket in the home. You are then able to control the appliance plugged into this Smart device remotely, often via a mobile application or web browser.

This means you can do such things as:

  • Turn a heater on before arriving home
  • Control your pool pump
  • Turn on / off lights within the home
  • Use excess power from your Solar PV

In fact the uses for these Smart 10A socket switched outlets is endless. So let us throw in a few more possibilities. What if you could control [toggle on /off] your appliances based on such criteria as:

  • Time of day
  • Light / dark hours
  • Weather
  • By sending a SMS
  • By sending an email
  • Activate via motion in the room
  • Timer 
  • kWh usage

Not forgetting, you can also log the power usage of the appliance in question. 

The list of possibilities is growing as the wealth of knowledge on the internet connects together. It is this connecting of information that is allowing such simple devices to grow into far more, than they were initially designed for.

So why not think what you CANNOT control in the home but wish to and see if a Smart 10A Switched Outlet can help you to overcome that problem.

We would love to hear what you end up doing, with your Smart 10A Switched Outlet. One such device we are working with is the Belkin WeMo.
