Could this be the largest list of Current Cost energy monitoring software and third party applications all in one place?

You may be looking for an out of the box / DIY software application to run on Windows, or a Raspberry Pi solution. We have trawled the internet over the years and put together this collection.

Most of these Current Cost energy monitoring solutions mean you only need a modified USB cable from your energy monitor to the device of choice, be it your PC or Raspberry Pi.


If you arrived here and have been using the MyCurrentCost online energy dashboard user which is now retired, your options are :

Solar Power Inverters Simply Forgotten After Install


Solar Power Inverter
How would you know if your solar power inverter went offline?

At what time after the fault would you discover the issue?

How much is this error going to cost you?

Our research over the years shows many householders check their newly installed solar power inverter frequently, only for a few months. Then less frequently until it is almost forgotten!

Of course once forgotten, there is no way of knowing if the inverter has an issue. An issue such as being offline! And if you were offsetting imported power to the cost of $3 plus per day, you can see this lack of checking is costly!

At $3 plus per day that is $275 per billing period!

It certainly does not make sense to rely on the electricity bill to inform you of a costly mistake! That is if you are checking the electricity bill, where often they too are little understood, paid quickly and filed away.

We have a solution for you! It is called SOLAR POWER MONITORING.

It is all about instant feedback, to make sure you keep on top of maximising the return from your solar power investment. Our solar power monitoring solutions can supply you with this information:


  • Real-time data, consumption, generation, import, export
  • Email alerts based on generation / consumption criteria
  • Weekly reports just in case you are not checking


Nobody wants the electricity bill to inform them of an issue! By then it is already a costly exercise.

So before you call us, we suggest you check your inverter.

Engage The Trend Of Solar Excess Diversion

Why not engage in the growing trend of diverting excess solar power to appliances on auto-pilot, when compared to sending it back to the grid for little financial return.

If you are only getting 6 cents for your unwanted power, it sure makes financial sense to use the same power to offset 30 cents or upward imported power costs.

Now if you have an Efergy Engage Hub connected to an online Home Energy Monitoring dashboard, you have that additional option.

Your data is simply sent to our Smart Solar Power dashboard where you can set triggers to activate smart switches and appliances.

Give us a call on 02 8064 3992 to discuss how you can maximise the use of your solar power, to increase your solar investment return.

Alternate Current Cost Xively Energy Monitoring Dashboard

Current Cost LCD Energy Monitor
For those of you with a Current Cost home energy monitoring system, we thought you may be interested to know there is a far better alternative to the old stagnant Current Cost dashboard.

You may be using a Current Cost bridge or gateway to get your data onto the Current Cost dashboard. A dashboard where your data is limited in display and only displayed in 5 minute increments!

What about sending your Current Cost energy monitoring data to an energy monitoring dashboard in REAL-TIME!

You only need a hub to replace your Current Cost bridge / gateway, that's all. This new hub will scan you home for Current Cost transmitters. It's that easy, no more pairing and unpairing issues!

There are many more important reasons this exciting change will appeal to you.

Importantly for those of you with solar power, your data can still be sent to PVOutput for detailed consumption and solar analysis.

Furthermore your data can be sent to our SMART Solar Power monitoring dashboard. Where you can set up triggers to make sure you maximise any excess solar power export, by directing it to appliances within your home on autopilot, via WiFi smart plugs such as the Belkin WeMo.

So to summarise this Current Cost energy monitoring dashboard alternative:

  • 5 channels of data in 6 second realtime
  • FREE Energy Monitoring Dashboard
  • No un-pairing of existing transmitters to LCD Energy Monitor 
  • Your data still arriving on PVOutput on auto upload
  • Your data on SMART SOLAR POWER [optional] with added home automation


Simply call us on 02 8064 3992 to switch over.

What you need is one of our HOME ENERGY MONITORING SYSTEM #1 hubs. Not forgetting you also have access to features such as:


  • Email alerts for solar / consumption [PVOutput]
  • Choice of real-time mobile apps
  • Temperature, light and motion monitoring


Data To PVOuptut Service - Yes we can do that for you as well if you do not have the time nor expertise.
