The Smappee Home Energy Monitor measures the import and export of electricity in your home. Add an additional 50A current clamp to separately monitor solar production too, or order the Smappee Home Energy Monitor (Grid + Solar) which includes the additional current clamp.
You can view the energy consumption and production of your home in real-time on your smartphone or tablet. The Smappee app gives you direct insight into your energy consumption and costs.
How it all Works
The Smappee monitor is connected to your home Wi-Fi router, to communicate with the Smappee cloud and the App.
Then, the Smappee monitor is installed near the fuse box. The sensors (current clamps) are connected to particular wires in or near the fuse box so that Smappee can measure the energy consumption of your home.
The Smappee Energy Monitor plugs straight into a 240V AC power outlet or can be connected directly to a suitably sized circuit breaker to power the device and monitor the voltage.
Real-time and historical energy reporting is available from both the Smappee online dashboard and the Smappee smartphone app.
The phone app also allows for control of the Smappee (wireless) Switches, also compatible with this energy monitor, including preset automation. E.g. turn on the pool pump when solar export is above 2,000 watts.
Users can also input their electricity tariffs (water and gas also possible with GW1 monitor) into the smartphone app, allowing for accurate reporting on usage costs and income from exported power.
