This application keeps track of your energy consumption. Add your meters for gas, electricity, or water to the database and record the current meter readings from time to time. Readings can be color-coded and comments may be added to remember special situations which may explain unusual energy usage. A regular reading interval is not required, take a reading whenever it is convenient.

From the entered data, the application calculates the average normalized rate of consumption per hour, day, week, or month (bewteen two readings) and draws a graph showing the consumption rate over time. The total amount of actually used energy during each day, week, month, or quarter is displayed as a bar graph or table. If the average cost per unit is provided, the graphs can also show the amount of money instead of energy.

For CLOUD SYNC: Use Export/Import via Google Drive to exchange database contents with other devices.

Meter exchange or reset is detected automatically and consumption data is recorded seamlessly across the reset.

Pinch zoom can be used on the trend and bar graph pages. In landscape orientation, comments are displayed in the list view.

Indirect metering is supoorted. In this case, the meter value is multiplied with a certain factor to convert it to the final energy value. Two separate unit texts can be entered, one for the meter and one for the actual energy value.

Meters can be marked to count backwards, which can happen with prepaid meters, showing the amount of remaining prepaid energy instead of used energy.

Virtual meters can be used to display the sum of individual meters and do simple unit conversion, for example from m3 to kWh. Please note that you should read your physical meters which are part of a virtual meter all around the same time for best results.

Meter data can be imported from and exported to CSV files from the context menu of each meter (long-press on the meter entry). Meters can also be edited and deleted via this context menu.

In addition to meter readings, sensor data like temperature or wind speed can be recorded. At the moment, this data is shown separately, but may be shown in combination with meter data in future releases.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The trend graph does NOT show total amount of energy used. The bar graph is used for this information. The trend graph shows usage values normalized to a certain time period (hour/day/week/month or year). If your meter records a usage of 10kWh within one hour (10kW power), the trend will show a usage rate of 240kWh per day for that measurement point (10kWh/h = 10kW power rating, normalized to one day -> 10kW * 24h = 240kWh). This is by design.

In case of questions or bug reports, please check the website (FAQ section) or send me an email.

Great app No complaints. A free app without adds that does exactly what I need. Well done. Easy to use, simple layout, and adequate stats.

Pașca Alexandru

Absolutely great. Nice graphs, nice animations, easy inputs and configurations. A bit odd to add a reading by long-pressing a menu button but it’s okay. REALLY nice would be to OCR the meters :D This application is USEFUL!

jeff darnell

There is no way to use this on HTC one There was no way to add a meter on my HTC one long press on meter didn't work and my phone doesn't have a Hardkey for menu and there was no menu button in the action bar like usual. I gave it three stars despite not being able to use it because you seem to be a developer that cares about it's customers by how many responses you have posted.

Henry Jeronimo

Great app but Don't know how to set up for electricity meter. Example indirect 1 meter step , value smoothing, trend smoothing.What do I enter?I also have high mid and low peaks,how can I factor thoes in?

Stephen Smith

Very useful app and excellent support The app works well and I have represented my LPG gas tank successfully, thanks to a VERY detailed reply from the developer! Thanks! I am really impressed!

Ged Heeley

Very good but..... I would of given this 5 stars if you could add in the meters section a daily standing charge cost and also a tax payable cost e.g. VAT for uk users thanks

Michael K

Excellent energy tool Nearly perfect, graph sometimes "slides down" off the screen.

rob Grady

Easy to use. Good analysis... Would like to be able to use it for heating oil. Need ability to add x litres on a date. Tried a prepayment meter type but alas... Also can't seem to delete an incorrect meter. Thanks...

David Mckiggan

The simple things are the best Great app to just log data on water, solar & power readings. The graphs are good to show the trends in usage.

Iulius Curt

Graphs are awesome Useful and easy to use. The interface is really old style, but the graphs are just perfect.

simone cairoli

Note 4 display problem On the Galaxy Note 4 the Menu is not displaied but thanks to a tips from Christoph now all is working perfect !!

Yongxin Wang

This is exactly what I wanted It is very convenient to be able to enter the readings when you actually read the meters. I used to keep track of the readings in a datasheet and had to enter/write the readings twice, once at the meters, once at the computer.

philip knowles

useful As a landlord I use as a notebook for my utilities when out reading meters but also good for trends of usage. Good for solar systems as well.

Richard Smith

Very useful I use it for gas, water and electricity as well as for solar readings. Really useful in planning energy savings. 15% less in 2014!

Tim Millard

Exactly what I wanted Simple logger with stats. Thought I'd have to code my own but this saves me the trouble, thanks!

Vaibhav Fadia

Great app Easy and simple interface. It does the job what it says on the tin!

Jacob Groenveld

Good but not GREAT Only issue i have is that i cannot edit the Rate i pay from my provider when my Rate changed...

Stephen Thompson

Stephen Use this app for measuring other things as well as energy, running balance of bank accounts, other bills, holidays left, sick days, just set as many metres as you want to keep up to date on everthing.

A Google User

Keeping track I love this app since I can keep track of my monthly electricity, my monthly work chargeability , etc. Easy to use and full of information.

Marek J

Great It does great job recording an analyzing the data. I like the virtual meter and graphs. Would give 5 stars if it had better GUI and realtime online backup

Jaime Sanchez

Very useful for keeping track of energy consumption This is one of the only apps that I have kept on my phone for more than a week. I have had it on my phone for a year. I highly recommend this app it is very good.

Phil Peel

Awesome Just what I was looking for

Marjan Pregelj

Missing autosync to some cloud .... ... but otherwise OK. For some time looked like app development is dead but now it looks it is continued.

A Google User

Perfect Keep up the exellent work.

Alexander Barbara

Very good and useful app.

Lars Eriksson

Great This is one of the essential apps that needs to be in my phone. Does what it should and just works.

Mark Kitchener

Love it Great app, used for years. UNFORTUNATLY just got a new phone and cant seem to transfer the data ( there is an option to send to SD but cant find it on new phone)developer offered another alternative which worked

Vitaly Emelianov

Just amazing Though it would be nice if there was a reminder to take the readings daily/weekly/monthly. As we all could forget about that.

Marcello Bailey

Nice Very cool

vijay george

Does what it's supposed to Simple and functional; allows me to check out energy utilisation and even lets me drill down to hourly intervals. Keep up the good work!

Derek Hohls

Does exactly what it needs to!

Dominik Schöner

Simple and useful The app is easy to set up and use and provides the user with nearly all the information he could hope to retrieve from regular readings of meters, all packaged in a simple and intuitive design without any unnecessary glamour. But what makes this app really great is the fact, that it (unlike many others of its kind) does not require any permissions on your device except for access to your local storage, since we all doing an export once in a while. The only 'flaw' is that you can only set one price per unit and year for each meter, which makes this feature not all that useful, since prices tend to change over time, but does not make the main functionality of the app any less useful (being able to input changes in price in a way similar to taking measurements would really make this tool complete). [ [ tl ; dr ] ] Great app, modest on requested permissions and almost perfect on functionality!

Tawanda Musesengwa

Awesome Simple but very useful, its helped me a lot track our daily electricity usage but initial setup is tricky pay close attention and you will be up and running in no time

Valent Turkovic

Best app for power metering Best app for power metering in Play Store, but that is not saying that it doesn't lack features. Please add two tariff meters!

Christopher Watson

Good Would be useful to have ability to set a reminder alarm; and also to submit meter readings to utility companies.

Oliver Dungey

Setup tricky but very useful I like it, needs a little UI glitz but essentially sound

Randy Hamilton

It needs help I have a note 4. Does not do anything. I have no5 figured out how to put info in. What am I doing wrong?

A Google User

SAMSUNG S 6 probs I have been using your superb program for many years now.l have recently upgraded my Sam s2 to an s6 and unfortunately I have found no way to make it work or even import my old meters and readings to the program. I tried pressing on the Meters tab but to no avail...:( any help?

Chandraprakash G

Error in reading input !!! While adding first measurement in the "reading" tab have no problem, but while adding first measurement in the readings tab everything gets confused and shows the wrong calculation for monthly load.

Greg Vidmar

Won't work Will not work on note 5 even though long pressing the back button is supposed to access the menu

Peter Lewis

The menu issue is such a shame with the S6. Even before Smart Manager restarts the Menu still isn't usable. Hope to use again very soon! Great App when working and will be missed.

Stefan Romeo DAN

Best app for meters - still issues with the menu This is the greatest application for this purpose I found, after searching a bit. But menu doesn't work on my S6edge+. I tried everything: assist menu, long press, double, triple press ... on all elements. Hope in the future will work. 02.01.2016: Didn't worked by killing Smart Manager, restarts instantly. 29.01.2016 thanks for the reply, my intention was to ask if possible to have a new tab for menu: meters, readings, graph, stats and MENU tab. With all that is still the best app for meters !

Stanislav Bebej

Great application, where do I donate? Or is there a Pro version?

Peter Chow

Flexible but graphing could be better Using SG Note 4. I like the virtual meters as it allows me to calculate the net solar contribution from my battery storage which also charges at night from cheap rate mains. The graphs could be better if they allowed multiple meter traces to be displayed (eg day, night, solar kWh). The legend on the stats chart doesn't say what the difference between red/blue bars means. A built-in gas m3 to kWh calculator function would be nicer than having to work out a ratio manually and input it to the indirect meter.

Richard Samson

The best meter app I have found This is by far the best meter app I have found and believe me I have tried a huge amount. With a little effort you can figure out what it is capable of doing and then your away. Only thing lacking is the history is fixed without the option of putting in a custom period.. Keep up the good work ECAS

Ninan Vineet George

Keeping track I loved this app since I can keep track of my monthly electricity, my monthly work chargeability , etc. Easy to use and full of information. Unfortunately after I got a new model phone, I could not get the Menu button on the app to be able to import data from the old phone backup. Sorry that I now have to use another app for this :(

James Carroll

Very useful Great for tracking consumption. Many thanks.

Thierry Cornet

Good app but missing an easy backup solution included for user who don't have a SD card for backups (via the cloud ideally) .

Shahbaz Amin

Very useful app! I have recently started using this app. I have found it very interesting and useful. Can I suggest something - Could you please add an option to add ' standing charges ' field for each meter. It will mean you can get better understanding of overall cost of energy used per period, including fixed daily charges. I hope you consider this fpr future. Thank you! :-)

Val Baillie

This is great...just what I was looking for. How can I add a total meter like the pictures show? Thanks - got the total working well now.

A Google User

Integrate backup This was the second time when I lost all of my data, because it has not got backup feature. Please integrate drive or dropbox!

Bryan Lanne

Menu issue woes This was an amazing app until the new Android version removed the soft menu button. I've tried all suggestions but cannot add a meter. I don't see the issue as all my other apps have updated and have the 3 dots menu available. A real shame as this seems the only consumption app that works with prepaid electricity meters. Update - I have disabled smart manager but it makes no difference.

Jamie -

Cannot use No way to access menu on Galaxy Note 5. Uninstalled.

DJ Leeson

Good app Liked the app but since I upgraded from the samsung s4 to the Samsung note 5 I cannot load my meters. There are no menu function button to add new meter. Would love it if you guys could fix this problem.

Peter Fisher-Duke

Decent but needs more flexibility cannot figure out a way to input my meter readings so that it automatically calculates the amount per day. my meter only gives me a readout of total kwh used and counts both ways based on how much solar is generated. I just want o input the current meter total reading in the log rather than calculating the difference myself every time. Other nitpicky things I didn't like: wish it synced with Google Drive, layout is not very intuitive, had to mess with my phone's system settings to get the menu to turn on

Jumimaru Moravia

Onscreen Buttons Missing On my Cat S40, this program is rendered useless. I cannot open any menus to import my old meter DB, nor can I add any new info. Please help en get 5 stars.

Chandraprakash G

No saving in cloud or signing in with Google feature !! All my data are lost once I reinstall the app !!

Cal Alaera

Pretty good app for what it does, but it's a bit limited in its options. For instance, service charges are normally assessed per day or per month, but this app requires them to be input per year. Also, if you have more than one meter (e.g. gas and electricity), you have to go through the whole meter read process for each meter individually. It would be much better if I could type in all my meter readings in one go. And finally, it doesn't offer anything in the way of forward planning - you can see your usage trends on a graph but it can't project forward and tell you what you're likely to spend next month. A few enhancements would really turn this into a killer app for me. :)

DJ Leeson

Good app Liked the app but since I upgraded from the samsung s4 to the Samsung note 5 I cannot load my meters. There are no menu function button to add new meter. Would love it if you guys could fix this problem. Thank you for fixing the issues. Love the app..

Andy B

Was better Latest round of updates now make the app less user friendly and slower to input data. Please add back the ability to add new entries via the Recordings pane so have new, edit and delete options. Also, the comments highlighting feature has vanished, using Nexus 7 tablet.

Andrew Van Niekerk

Was very good but since upgrade it is now user unfriendly. Why do you fix something that ain't broke. I have used this for more than 5 years but will have to consider looking for something new.

Christopher Hart

horrible since upgrade The upgrade will be reason I uninstall. The new UI is a downgrade, the blue theme was badly though by developers. the entire app looks amateur.

Geoff Walker

Need to drop the rating to 3 stars. Moved to a Note 4 (6.0.1) from HTC One X. Am experiencing the menu issue. No work around works for me. HTC works fine. Would love to see a fix for Samsung please UPDATE: The latest update now works with Samsung Note 4. Back to 5 stars

Dr John C Yeadon

Perfect until update When editing a virtual meter, the meter names are shown as "Meter Name" so I don't know which is which.

Steven McCue

Does exactly what I need. Thanks for creating such a useful tool. Simple meter reading and you know exactly what to expect from your energy supplier before the bill is produced. I find it helpful in as much as I know how much to budget against the bizarre figures suppliers will suggest in terms of direct debit calculations.

Stefan Romeo DAN

Best app for meters - still menu issues This is the greatest application for this purpose I found. Update 09.08.2016: The menu worked only once by pressing a tab. To make it work I unistalled ECAS then force closed Smart Manager and reinstalled ECAS. I managed to import the back-up data and meters and now I can use the app. Unfortunatly no more back-up function as menu is not accesible. Hope still to have automatic back-ups.

Jacob Groenveld

Good but not GREAT...downgraded Just installed on my new Galaxy S7 and there is NO MENU and no way to access it... basically i cannot USE this App.

Alex Vande Walle

Very well written, usefull and no-nonsense app.
