As the Dutch say: Meten is weten (to measure is to know), this post is about a product that allows you to know your electricity and water consumption in order to have a better perspective about your electricity, gas and water usage habits and thus take actions to save on energy consumption.

HomeWizard P1 Meter
The HomeWizard P1 Meter is a device that allows you to monitor your home’s energy consumption in real time. It gives you detailed information about your electricity and gas consumption, so you can make more informed decisions about how to be more energy efficient and reduce your energy bills.
The P1 Meter connects to the P1 port of your smart meter (on the meterkast) and sends consumption data to the cloud via Wi-Fi. You can access this data from any device with an internet connection, using the HomeWizard Energy app.
The HomeWizard Energy app allows you to view your current, historical and total energy consumption. You can add the start date of your energy contract and keep track of your energy bill. You can also create alerts to notify you if your energy consumption exceeds a certain threshold.
The HomeWizard P1 Meter is a great way to reduce your energy bills and help the environment. It’s easy to install and use, and the HomeWizard Energy app is very intuitive.
Simply put, the HomeWizard P1 Meter is a tool that can help you save money on your energy bills. It does this by tracking how much energy you use and giving you tips on how to reduce your consumption.
The HomeWizard smart water meter is a device that connects to the existing water meter and measures water consumption. The water consumption data can be viewed in an app on your smartphone. You can set up alerts to be notified if there is abnormal water consumption. The water meter is battery operated or powered by a USB cable.
The HomeWizard smart water meter uses a flow sensor to measure the amount of water flowing through the pipe. The water consumption data is sent to an app on your smartphone via a wireless connection.
The HomeWizard smart water meter is easy to install. Simply plug it onto your existing water meter and follow the instructions on the app.
HomeWizard Energy Socket
The HomeWizard Energy Socket is a smart plug that allows you to remotely control your connected devices and measure their energy consumption. You can use the socket to remotely turn devices such as lamps, TVs or coffee machines on or off using timers.
The Energy Socket is easy to install. Simply plug it into the socket and connect the device you want to control. Then download the HomeWizard Energy app and follow the instructions to link the socket to the app.
You can use the Energy Socket with all devices that can be plugged into a normal wall socket and do not use more than 3680 watts.
The HomeWizard Energy app allows you to control the Energy Socket remotely and program it. For example, you can set your TV to turn off automatically when you go to sleep.
The HomeWizard Energy app also allows you to track the energy consumption of your connected devices. In the app, you can see how much energy your connected devices are consuming.
Home Wizard meters are a good option if you want to monitor your energy and water consumption. The meters are relatively affordable and easy to install.
Monitor the production of solar panels
If you are looking for a way to monitor the production of your solar panels, the P1 meter is the most economical solution. Just plug in the P1 meter and you can see how much electricity your solar panels are generating in real time, by day, week, month and year. In the case of the paid app the history you can access is longer and you can also see the different phases of electricity, but in my own experience the free app is more than enough.
You can also connect the inverter of your solar panels to the application to see how much of the energy you produce you are consuming. Brands supported so far are Goodwe, Growatt, Solar Edge, Enphase, SMA.

Home Wizard meters are a useful tool if you want to monitor and save energy and water. The meters are easy to use and offer a variety of functions that can help users reduce their bills. If you have solar panels it is ideal for monitoring production and in the future when there is no more “saldering” you can use the smart plugs to switch on the washing machine for example when there is more generation from the panels.
