Comments: Would You Like More Control Over Your Electricity Usage?

Neat idea Adrian, Are you going to use the ethernet over power systems like PC World sells?

Glad you like it. It'd mesh well with your recent investigations of your home's carbon footprint :-)

I'm not sure if it'll use powerline ethernet for the networking side of things. The prototype is using Bluetooth initially because my laptop already has it and Bluetooth Arduino boards are easy to get hold of. I've got a Zigbee shield for the Arduino too, so that's the current front-runner for the networking side of things, but once the basic functionality is up and running over Bluetooth I'll have a closer look at what would make most sense.
