electrical usage of our home appliances. If we then respond by changing our behaviour towards energy use, the GET really can help us make a difference in the fight against climate change.

How does GET The GET

work? uses a simple clip-on sensor and transmitter inside the meter box to transmit a real time

reading of actual power being used to a portable LCD display inside the home or office. This reading shows the cost of electricity being used in a real time dollar value.

Technical Specifications


  • Additional sensors for 2 & 3 phase power supply (Cat No. CMS113)

  • a.c./d.c. power pack for monitor display (Purchased Separately, Cat No BE490)

How does it measure the energy output?

It cleverly measures electricity consumption using kilowatt hours, it also measures the resulting CO2 emissions in Kg as well as in-home temperature.

So can the GET

actually cut a household’s bills?

Yes, by reducing energy wastage. The GET

lets you know how much your electricity is costing in real

time letting you make informed decisions on which appliances to use, which appliances are costing the most to run and serving as a constant reminder to turn off unneeded appliances.


identifies ways in which a household can be more energy efficient by highlighting the electrical

usage of everyday appliances – literally showing the level of electricity we waste in our homes. And in doing so, the GET is also showing the cost savings to be had as a direct result of being greener.

to measure electrical usage, and as a result changed their behaviour to

reduce consumption, we really would be saving the planet, as well as our pockets.

used to check your energy bill. It can be used to monitor individual circuits of metered premises to estimate the share of power usage. For safety purposes a licensed electrician is required to install the sensor.
