After getting a CurrentCost energy monitor a week ago I decided it was time to get some useful data out of it. I have 3 phase power so I wanted a tool which would create graphs for each of the phases along with combined total data. The solution to my problems would have to be custom coded and I also wanted an application which could be used cross platform as I regularly use both Windows and OSX.

My choice was to use Adobe Flex as it can provide some nice looking graphs and I have been meaning to do more work using the Flex in flash player or using Adobe Air technology to create a desktop application.

Im creating an application which I can give back to the community which have been developing applications already for the CurrentCost meter. So I decided to use a very simple architecture for this first demo application which uses a simple client server model.
