Is there a way to view the split between home & car charging energy use?

Hi, does anyone know if you can get a user interface for a smart meter that splits home use and EV charger use separately? It seems pointless showing how much energy we’ve used in a day regarding costs when we are paying 10p a unit for EV charging and 31p per unit for Home use

Hi @Westboy73 , the smart meter won’t know what’s using the energy provided. I’m not sure if any of the EV charger apps give a more detailed view. Several third party energy app providers (eg. Bright,Loop, Hugo, ivie, SmartThings) offer different data views and I’ve seen a beta version of the Hugo Pro system which looks to give extra detail including EV, energy export, weather and smart controller (for heating). 
Another way would be to use a monitoring system like the Emporia Energy device which uses CT sensors on various cable feeds to measure and record individual circuits
