I'm going to quote the whole post, hope I don't violate any web etiquette
"Ok so I have been given some info on how to control the kickr using an external power meter to gauge the power. It involves a few processes and firmware updates. I got the following instruction from Wahoo.
We are testing KICKR firmware and we would like your feedback for one of our new features. The feature uses the power data from an ANT+ power meter to tune the KICKR's resistance to match the power data of the power meter.
Step 1 is to download the latest Wahoo Fitness beta app. Follow the link below and tap install on the webpage and tap install when prompted. The test app is called Wahooligan and is a beta version of the Wahoo Fitness app. Follow the link below on your iDevice, tap “Install” and tap “Install” when prompted.

Step 2 is updating the KICKR to firmware version 22.214.171.124 using the Wahoo Utility app and the secret swipe.

Step 3 is configuring your KICKR in the Wahooligan app. You will need to know the ANT ID of each power meter. After tapping “Next” on the initial setup screens, you will arrive at the Wahoo Fitness app home screen.
First, tap on the “Settings” button, then tap on “My Details”. At the bottom of the page next to “Wahooligan Code” is a blank text box. Enter “ilovecupcakes” into the text box and tap done. Next tap “<Settings” and “Done” to return to the home screen.
Second, tap “Sensors” located at the bottom left of the home screen to enter the sensor screen. Tap “Add New Sensor”, tap on your KICKR to enter the sensor configuration page. Scroll down the page and swipe on "Control with ANT+ Power Meter". Tap "ANT+ Power Device ID". The next screen is where you input the ANT ID of the power meter, the app will not locate the power meter for you, unless you have an ANT dongle in your iDevice. Next tap the back arrow, tap save sensor, associate the sensor with a workout profile, tap “Done”, and tap “Done”.
Third, begin a workout. On the third workout page (two swipes right to left) you will see a dot underneath the power display. If the dot is green, then the KICKR is connected to your ANT+ power meter. If the dot is red, then the KICKR has not connected to the power meter.
Here is a link to a video of the configuration of the app: https://www.dropbox.com/...%28small%29.mov?dl=0
Please let us know what you think about this feature. It may be beneficial to have a device connected to your power meter next to your iDevice controlling the KICKR to get a visual comparison of the KICKR's tuning to match the power meter.
We appreciate your help and look forward to your feedback. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions.
My apology if I messed any earlier post but thought the Kickr crew might really appreciate this information regarding regulating their Kickr via their separate power meter output rather then the Kickr's measurement that often seems to drift. http://forums.transitions.org.au/...pic=64546&page=6
