    NutsyHome...would would be willing to share your script for generating the totals?

    Thanks!

      What do you mean no "total" device?
      It has 2 sets of devices for each Line:
      readings for Volt, Amp, Watt
      and total accumulated kW/h (can be reset at any time)

      What do you calculate for total?

        Hi NustyHome

        Do you have the same readings from ZW095 compared to your home Power Meter?
        I mean Amp & Watt for each line.

        My ZW095 shows twice higher values.

        For example, actual readings from Home Power Meter:
        V = 122
        I = 1.1
        W = 134
        ZW095 shows
        V = 122
        I = 2.2
        W = 268

        And kW/h value accumulated for a month ZW095 shows 2 time more that Utility Bill.

          I've honestly never checked... Maybe next billing cycle I'll reset the kWh counter and see what happens after a month.

            I had similar problem, although not precisely double (close). I contacted tech support at Aeotec, but I couldn't resolve the problem. I no longer live in that home and I have not set up the devices yet in my new home.

              Some work on this device in the last update to the plugin. But still only 12 devices (after rescan, not exclude/include). All the "Total Readings" (six available in the device (see link in first post), but probably only Watts and kWh is necessary) is still missing.

                Over the past month, my ZW095 total kWH matches my electric bill...

                  Oops, missed this a while back...

                  This is based on my system, where the individual Watts devices are 40 and 44.
                  I created a dummy device number 47.
                  (Device numbers can be seen from their "Advanced" tab).

                  This event triggers whenever either Watts device changes value.


                  Sub Main(parm as object)
                  Dim WattsNow as Double
                  '47=Watts variable, 44=Watts1, 40=Watts2

                  WattsNow = hs.deviceValue(44) + hs.DeviceValue(40)
                  hs.SetDeviceValueByRef(47, WattsNow, True)

                  End Sub

                      Below is how I calculate the totals and graph the output. I use Jon's Database Chart utility to build and graph the results.

                        I have Aeotec ZW095 2 phase (US/Canada).
                        Installed as per manual - no mistakes. Included without any errors as well.
                        Works more than 6 month, ALL this time readings WRONG from actual.

                        1. Voltage - Line 1 & 2 - readings correct, each line around 120 V
                        2. Amps - Line 1 & 2 readings are TWICE larger then actual from Main Power Meter.
                        3. Watts - Line 1 & 2 readings are TWICE larger then actual from Main Power Meter.
                        4. kW/h - summary readings and All Graphs (hourly / daily / monthly) shows values TWICE larger then actual from Utility Bill.

                        If anyone had something like this? Please advise how to adjust the correct readings?
                        Thank you.

                        I have the same problem. I contacted Aeotec support and they suggested it was a problem with Homeseer. They looked at my configuration and saw no problem.

                          I had this too (I eventually returned it as I didn't find it useful enough) but when I installed it, I recall reading somethin about this "doubling" problem -- I think the solution was to check the directions of your line sensing clamps - they have to "point" in oppose directions and one of them may be flipped.

                            Yep. I was aware the clamps had direction markings and needed to "point" in opposite directions. Double checked that but thanks for the reminder. I wonder why some people seem to be getting accurate readings and then some of us get double.

                              Try excluding it and then reinclude it. I have 4 of them (one on the main power line and then three more monitoring 6 branch circuits) and I’ve seen issues with their readings and excluding and reincluding has fixed it.

                                I also face similar issuess using ZW095 1P 100A and 3P 200A HEM. Updated with latest firmwares, 1.35 for 1P and 1.4 for 3P.
                                Both included, but not having Total Readings (3 hs3 devices missing for them).
                                Also I have Readings for kWh and Watts doubled in 3P HEM.

                                Tried playing with parameters, but the problem not fixed.
                                Someone fixed both problems (missing total devices and double readings)?
