    That is a different application. In this case we are talking about monitoring a single 220V circuit to track energy or in my case trigger things when it goes on or off.

    Ideas?

    I am using it to monitor an oven. I trigger off Watts so I enabled polling at 30 second intervals on Watts1 and Watts2. That got things working for me.

    I had to enable polling to get mine to work.

    I just installed a new Gen5 HEM, Started on one particular 2 phases AC load for the moment. Pairing went fine although, from reading the post, I don't now if I choose secured or not. Pretty sure it was not the unsecured option. Nevertheless the fact that the (8) child got configured, I'm thinking it went fine. However I'm facing (2) issues that I can't seem to figure out:

    #1: Data not updating: I selected some data as part of Group #1 and did set the refresh rate to 10S but the values in HS never changes. However, if I poll the root device I'm getting all new refreshed data.

    #2: HS Energy page not working: I went to Setup>General>Energy Settings and ticked "Enable Energy Logging and Graphing" and entered a kwh price. When I go to the new Energy page I get a blank page with only this message at the top "error - Object reference not set to an instance of an object."

    Any ideas are welcomed.

    I have been looking for a device that will monitor kWh on 3 phase systems. I have searched only to find devices that operate at 50hz for overseas. I know this topic is about this particular brand but wanted to ask if anyone has found anything like that? I considered setting up my own CT and converting it to and analog input but haven’t got very far with that.

    thanks-

    You did notice the K->H writing on the back? Maybe you should try and o reverse the orientation.

    Well I take it all back. Whatever I did was temporary and I'm back to exactly double the usage my utility reports. I can't manage to change it, and any attempts at setting parameter 1 results in an error message. At least it's easy enough to deal with but it would be nice if somehow this could be fixed in the zwave plugin. Perhaps an option to half the recorded results...apparently that was suggested to SmartThings users so Aeotec had no solution.

    I can't seem to get mine to monitor a single device (Furnace). I get Voltage, but nothing else. I have the idea of looping the Powerline through twice and see what happens as maybe the cable is too small, not enough field is generated.. Ideas?

    i couldn't believe the readings from the Zw095

    i have a high quality Fluke amp meter is used to compare against, my Aeon is off at least 25-45%. i imagine some of it is the HS3 refresh rate. but still this is not what i expected

    i also used a Fluke volt meter to validate the voltage.

    I somehow managed to get the power consumption values to 'normal' (as opposed to double). I made several changes so not entirely sure what did it. I was playing around with parameter 1. I tried setting it to 120 but that didn't seem to work, but I also then added voltage and amps (for both clamps) to report 1 and tried parameter 1 set to 1. Not sure what did it but by tomorrow morning I will be able to compare the hourly kwh reports to my utility. I was playing around with parameter 1 as I was hoping I could do something ugly like set the volts to 60 as a crude way of diving the watts by 2...

    Same here. A lot of SmartThings users report the same thing but they have access to the device handler code so they can simply put in a / 2 in there...

    I just put in two of these HEM units, and I can verify that you must use the Add Unsecure option to avoid problems with inclusion. I was never able to get a successful inclusion using normal (Secure) mode on either unit, with the same errors as above.

    Once I switched to Unsecure Mode, both units included immediately with all proper child devices present. Associations were correct on both. Can't speak to the accuracy of the units yet, as I have not connected the clamps to the circuit boxes.
