Electrical consumption measurement and data gathering at the wall outlet level?

by ylluminate   Last Updated June 18, 2018 18:21 PM

I have a TED (The Energy Detective) to measure energy levels in my home. I was initially excited with the data that I was getting, but quickly found that it was not sufficient to give a clear enough picture.

Is there a known method for measuring electrical consumption at the outlet level for devices that also reports the data back to a central local server that can show everything in a comprehensive graph? (Essentially a Kill A Watt with networking.)

I'm considering building one (well many of these) myself if necessary and would appreciate any thoughts or input in this regard if you have any. I have about 30 outlets that I need to monitor.
