About the App
MeterStats helps users track their energy consumption through meter readings and provides rich insights in the form of charts. It’s completely built with SwiftUI and uses the new Swift Charts framework to create visualizations that help users understand their energy usage patterns.
Users simply need to add the readings manually as often as they prefer. The app then uses those readings to calculate the consumption and resulting trends over time.
But the app is more than just a simple tracking tool. I understand that users want to improve their energy use and reduce their bills. That’s why I’ve designed MeterStats to help them experiment and find out what works best for them with the unique events tracking feature.
Users can track ”special events” – such as turning down their thermostat by 1°C, buying smart home appliances, or working from home – and see how much of an impact it has on their consumption over time. This way, users can make informed decisions about how to reduce their energy use without sacrificing comfort.
For users who have different residences or want to keep track of former places, MeterStats supports creating and switching between multiple locations. If preferred, it’s easy to split the apartment, garden, and garage, for example. Each location has its own meters, readings, special events, and resulting insights and can be quickly switched via the settings button in the top navigation bar.
The Beginning of Something New
I have plans to improve the app in many ways in the coming months after the initial release. The roadmap includes things like reminders, iCloud sync, Widgets, an iPad app, and much more.
