Home Energy Monitoring Device

The App includes an easy to follow setup guide when you first install your home energy monitor. You'll be up and running in about 10 minutes!

Home Energy Monitoring System - How it Works

The Powersensor has three main parts, as outlined below:

1) The Sensor is a wireless device you install near your mains service fuse or electricity meter. This rechargeable battery-powered Sensor requires no tools for installation. It uses a patented technique to accurately measure electricity flow without making direct contact with any wires. It transmits data to the Plug using Bluetooth.

2) The Plug that plugs into a regularly used appliance inside your home. It measures and logs power usage through this appliance, acting as a calibration system for the Sensor. It also relays the data from the Sensor to the internet via your home wifi network.

3) The App provides access to your data, whether you're at home or away. The App includes both energy and cost tracking, and you can view your energy data in a wide variety of ways.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does it work with 3 phase power?

No. This home energy monitor currently only works with single-phase households, the most common type. If you have a three-phase power supply, please consider a different electricity monitor.

Not sure what type of power you have? See our blog post on how to tell if you have 3 phase power.

Is this a remotely accessible energy monitor?

Yes. The Plug connects to the internet. You can check your energy usage from home, at the office, or anywhere in the world.

Is it compatible with home battery systems?

Not at present - but it's on Powersensor's feature roadmap for inclusion soon.

Is it compatible with multiple solar power inverters?

Yes. This product is our suggested solution if you have two solar PV power inverters. Rather than tracking multiple inverters individually (which is not possible), it simply tracks the NET import and export of power from your main switchboard.

Note: Powersensor calls this kit the Essentials Solar Monitoring Solution as opposed to the Advanced Solar Monitoring Solution.

How often does the data update?

Readings update in the App every 30 seconds. As such, you can readily observe changes in power usage from individual appliances.

The Plug also acts as an individual appliance power meter - providing a handy usage log for a frequently used appliance.

Can I add more Plugs to track more appliances in detail?

Yes - you can add up to eight extra Powersensor Plugs to monitor more appliances from within the app.

What's in the home energy monitoring kit?

You will receive everything you need, including:

  • 1 x Plug - sits inside your home, ideally within one to two rooms of your electricity meter box. Add an extra plug if you need to extend this range.
  • 1 x Sensor - goes inside your electricity meter box.
  • A USB cable to recharge the Sensor every one to two years.
  • High quality 3M Dual Lock reclosable velcro pads to secure the Sensor in place.
  • Instructions and a QR code to download the App.

Is the software / App free?

Yes. Your purchase of the device on this page covers the cost of the App. Here are the download links for any Apple or Android smartphone:

Unlike other electricity monitoring devices, Powersensor does not charge ongoing fees. However, they may release even more features in the future as an optional extra (premium subscription).

Can I export or download my energy data?

Yes. The App includes a data export function (to a .csv spreadsheet file). Data is stored half-hourly and includes usage (in kWh), peak demand (in kW), and cost for each time period.

Powersensor a Usefull Tool

The Power Sensor system is very easy to install from the practical perspective as well as the app setup perspective. The App setup performed exactly as detailed in the instructions. The App detail screens give me a clear understanding, current and historic, of how our home electrical system is performing along with our net import and export to the grid. I recommend this product.

PowerSensor Energy Monitor and App

This kit is great if you want to get an idea of how much power you are using and it's cost.

The kit is expandable, by purchasing additional Monitor Plugs (up to 8 additional plugs), if you want to be able to see how much power each device is using and what they are costing you.
