P1 Dutch Smart Meter


Plug-in for the Smart Meters that are currently being installed all over The Netherlands (and possibly other European countries?) Requires a special Serial or USB to P1 (RJ11) cable.

  • This plugin is for HS3 or HS3PRO. It works with both Windows and Linux versions
  • .NET Framework 4.5 or later, or mono 4.x needs to be installed on your Homeseer machine
  • equires a special Serial or USB to P1 (RJ11) cable. See table below for the correct cable layout.

    Or just search the Internet for a P1 interface cable. It should look similar to this:

There are no additional software requirements. The plug-in can be installed from the HS3 updater, and can be found under the section “Energy Management”.


After installation and starting the plug-in, go to the configuration page. They are five tabs:
  • Port Settings: Make sure the settings match the Smart Meter installed.
  • General: Set the update frequency (1 minute is usually fine) and if you want the daily totals to reset at midnight.
  • Energy: Settings to configure the HS3 build-in energy graphic
  • Debug: Enable advanced logging, normally disabled
  • Support: How to get support and how to donate


There is not much troubleshooting. If things don't work, you either have the wrong cable, or the wrong port settings.
