SECONDARY ELECTRICITY METERS FROM CHM
“One Unit Monitors Your Entire Property “
Our secondary electricity monitoring system is a revolutionary product designed to give home owners & landlords peace of mind when guests/tenants use a property. The system monitors energy consumption and shows guests exactly how much they are using, helping to keep costs to a minimum and protecting you from high energy bills.
The System can be installed to monitor the whole house electricity supply or just the air conditioning supply (as this is one of the most expensive appliance to run, and tends to be the most misused). Many smaller properties also use air conditioning as a major source of heating in the winter too.
The System’s versatility means it can be tailored to suit virtually every clients needs, we have found the system to be extremely effective in a variety of areas found below.

How it works
‘Easy To Use – No hassle for owners, property managers, landlords & guests’
We install the meter next to the fuse board, so it has access to the specified circuit – either whole house electricity supply or the just for the air conditioning circuit.
When a guest arrives at the property, they must purchase or are given a Credit Allowance Card. This card contains a value of ‘credit’ corresponding to an amount of electricity usage. The guest inserts this card into the system to start using the electricity and the LCD Display visually shows the guest how much they are using in real time.
Studies have shown that because guests can actually see what they are spending, they naturally spend less, the system even warns guests when their usage becomes excessive
happens when the ‘Credit’ runs out?
Pre Payment: the guest simply purchases another card from the property manager, similar to a ‘pay-as-you-go’ system.
–Allowance System: if a guest goes over their designated allowance they must then purchase a card from the Property Manager or ask for emergency credit. 99% of the time, guests stay within the budget, but if they do go over you as the owner are protected from them running up a high bill.
