I have a cent-a-meter electricity monitor. I would like to connect it to something like an ioBridge. Is this possible? Answered

(The LED monitor does not have a data output). There may be a possibility to hack a data line within the monitor device but I don't have any schematics.

. Getting the data displayed on the LCD may be difficult, but you should be able to find a voltage signal, proportional to the power being used, that you can feed into your ioBridge.
. For a schematic, try http://www.google.com/search?q=%22cent-a-meter%22+%2Bschematic or http://www.google.com/search?q=%22cent-a-meter%22+%2Bcircuit (I didn't look at either result, so there may not be a schematic available)
