Do you want to find out how much energy your home uses? You can trust what the power company says, or you can check for yourself. With a device like the Emporia Vue, this is easy to do and doesn’t require any major wiring changes.
The Emporia Gen 2 Vue uses a pair of electromagnetic current sensors that clip on top of the two electrical mains that go into your circuit breaker. The sensors can tell how much power your home is pulling from the grid as a whole. This information is sent to an attached monitor once per second.
This information is sent from the monitor to Emporia’s servers in the cloud through Wi-Fi. From there, it is sent to an app on your smartphone. This lets you see how much energy your home is using right now and in the past.Price: $84.99
