With Utilities bills rising Peter Robinson of Tiny Gadgets blog has come up with a unique and safe way of monitoring your gas meter using a Gadgeteer kit to periodically read a gas meter, and send the data to a server for further use.

This project uses five Gadgeteer elements: the Sytech Nano main board, the Sytech Serial Camera, a GHI dual power supply board, the GHI 7 LED board and a Sytech XBee module. In addition, a couple of white LEDs, couple of 180 Ohm resistors and a 5V power supply.
