Quick Overview

 

Please note this device is for Smart Meter users in Victoria only. It will not work properly with two element meter (e.g. when you have electric off-peak hot water at your home).
Pipit 500 is an in-home display that will allow you to see your electricity consumption and save. The Pipit 500 collects energy usage information from your Smart Meter and displays it on a LCD touch screen. In addition, the unit allows you to set-up alerts related to energy usage. 
The Pipit 500 connects (pairs) wirelessly to your smart meter using a Home Area Network (HAN) which is built into both the Smart Meter and the Pipit 500. This is a unique pairing and, importantly, only the data from your Smart Meter will be visible on your Pipit 500. Energy data is presented instantaneously in $/c. Traffic light indicators provide instant visibility of energy consumption. Targets can be set for daily consumption, this is a guide along your journey to save.
A historical data view helps you identify high and low consumption periods; having information allows you to manage your usage.


Please note that PiPIT is not compatible with Smart Meters installed and maintained by SP Ausnet distributror. However, the other electricity distributors (e.g. United Energy, Jemena, Citipower, Powercor)  opened their smart meters for the integration with PiPIT. Before deciding to buy PiPIT please read this information and check if your smart meter is compatible with PiPIT: Read Here.
