Can anyone suggest a real time energy monitoring solution? I need this to be instantaneous (rather than a delayed data stream) because I want to go beyond energy profiling, and look at actively managing applicances via Home Automation based on current solar production etc
I found http://www.wattwatchers.com.au/ which seems to do this. Does anyone have any experience with their product?
Also, can people comment on the accuracy of energy monitors which are clip-on? How much more accurate are they compared to say, in-line monitors?

A guy at work just installed this one www.efergy.com.au. It displays in real time on your mobile. I believe it was $300. He is monitoring his solar generation, hot water, pool pump and total energy use.

Our house has a Saturn South ESBox, which was installed free some time ago (we qualified for something).
It does a good job of capturing fairly real-time data (think it polls every 5 seconds, and I hacked it to pipe directly into my home automation every minute)

I only needed something simple to get to grips with my energy profile, to help me determine what kind of solar I need. Did its job well enough, although there are some annoying instances where the Efergy hub would drop out and fail to log, requiring a reset before it would start logging again
