Techtoniq have just released v1.1 of its CurrentCost Agent. It’s a client-server application for Windows XP which allows you to log and analyse data collected by either your Classic or Brand new CC128 CurrentCost device.
“Due to popular demand, Techtoniq has today released a free trial version of the new Current Cost Agent software. The software is compatible with both Current Cost devices (the Classic and the Envi) and logs data in real time to allow you to chart trends in your electricity consumption.
The free trial has a limited range of functionality as the beta testing programme is yet to be completed. Further revisions of the free trial will be made available as the testing completes. The fully-enabled version with all functionality will be available to purchase in April.
