Woman on smartphone
Posted 22/03/2017 by E.ON

We’ve never been more connected. Whether it’s checking in with your friends, doing a spot of shopping, or getting lifestyle tips - if you have a smartphone, you’ll be using it lots of wonderful ways on the go.

And as technology gets even better, we’re seeing and experiencing even more ways to keep in touch with anyone – and anything.

The smart revolution

There’s no doubt about it – everything’s getting a lot smarter. And with millions of smart meters being installed over the next few years, our homes are definitely on the way to being a lot more energy smart.

If you already have one, you’ll know that it comes with a portable display for your home, which shows you how much energy you’re using in real time. That means when you’re boiling the kettle, you’ll see how much electricity that’s using. Or if you’re putting a load of washing on, you’ll know how much it’s costing. Now that’s smart!

All of this has had us thinking even smarter. What if your smart energy display is in another room? And what do you do if you’re not even at home?

It’s how we came about trialling something new: E.ON See – an even smarter way of keeping you connected to your home while you’re on the go.

What’s so smart about E.ON See?

Well just like an in-home display, with E.ON See you can view how much energy you’re using and how much you’re spending in near-real time. But because it’s an app on your smartphone, you can easily check it whenever and wherever you are.

The idea is it’ll help you see clearly how much energy you’re using over time and what it’s costing in pounds and pence. And it’ll also give you a nudge if it spots something’s not quite right with your energy use.

It’s all part of helping you take better control; by literally putting the power in your hands. Smart, eh?

E.ON See

Great! So how do I get it?

Keep an eye out - we’re offering E.ON See to some customers in a few areas of the UK first. If you’re eligible, we’ll be in touch to let you know you can try it instead of a physical smart energy display when you have a smart meter installed.

Technology is evolving and changing the way we all communicate, work and live. So we believe it’s our job to look for new ways to use it and help make your life easier. We feel E.ON See is an exciting step in that direction.
