I've tried, but not picked up anything. I did some research, and it seems the meters used here (BGE) use a different protocol.

I was able to see the water meter usage but the electrical meter here uses a different protocol as well. Interesting piece of software though. Tested it out on Linux using an rtl2832u TV tuner dongle.
This was a while back so I should see if the latest version includes our other meters here when I get the chance.
I'm not saying aliens are in the radio, but aliens definitely are in the radio.
