How do I set up a single tariff in my OWL +USB Electricity Monitor?

Please note:- The OWL Monitor does not have block tariff functionality input/operation where the first number of kWh are at one value and everything else used is another. For a block tariff we recommend that you enter an average tariff value in Tariff 1, calculated from your typical billed kWh usage (monthly/quarterly) and assuming the following example then Total cost of kWh would be 210kWh @ 20.90p & 690kWh at 10.00p equalling £125.43. The average tariff value would be £125.43 divided by 900kWh giving 13.94p.

The Tariff Alarm enables the user to set a cost value that if exceeded when a multitude of appliances (ie Washing Machine, Dishwasher, Tumble Dryer, Cooker, Electric Shower)are all in use and warns the user that their current usage is high. This is more beneficial to those people on Peak/Off-Peak Tariffs so that they minimise spend during peak tariffs.
