My utility (Comed) just installed a Smartmeter. I can now look historic energy usage online.
I would like to be able to read in real-time my consumption.
I thought there would be more choice for such devices. So far, I found two display devices from Rainforest and Ambient. However, I would prefer monitoring form a PC or ipad. For the PC I found a Zigbee USB dongle from Rainforest. No iOs solution so far.

Am I missing something? Anybody here experimented with this?

The meters are owned by the utility company. You need their permission. If they give such permission then they may also have an answer for you. If you don't have their permission, and happen to screw it up then you will be buying a new one for them.... and they're expensive.

Not sure how to screw a meter. We are talking (wireless) Zigbee. The utility lists two devices and asks to contact them for connecting others. I am sure they don't mind as long as the device complies with the Zigbee profile. Of course, the device needs to be activated.
