Is this the same as the Sense monitor? Looks the same just in a different color, and apparently the same app?

Asked by Jfraz July 25, 2019

Answers

Yes, a new software update was released over the air, and now we can use the solar CTs to monitor the consumption of the second main panel, in a 400 A split configuration. This will not work if the main panel has a 400a main breaker.

Asked by HomeEnergy123 October 21, 2019

Answers

This provides instantaneous (less than a second) data. I bought the sense 2 years ago in beta and it has identified over 30 devices in the home and gives usage for all of them. My only concern was I had a heat pump water heater and a variable speed heat pump heating the home. It had a problem recognizing the variable load of these 2 devices. They finally solved the problem with dedicated monitoring of these loads. Sense uses the extra plug for 1 or 2 devices. It took a while to identify things but after a year it pretty much had everything. I love it.

Can this be installed in a home that has two panels?

Installed the Square D Wise Energy Monitor, Which is actually the Sense, re branded. It uses the same app. I was able to grab this off home depots page on a one day sale. I really didn't need it but since it was on sale I grabbed one. Installing it was simple, again if you are not familiar with electricity have someone that is install it for you. It has been running for a few days and it is starting to recognize devices with in the house. As mention in other post, I wish it would allow you to add devices that you can identify as using power on/off. I did connect to my smart home devices that were being support by Square D/Sense. So for so good. It will be a while before it determines most things in the house. It great to see what is using power and how much.

They should be giving this product away. I have had it installed for four months and it has accurately figured out one appliance. It simply does not work. You can see your energy consumption in total, but it does not identify the source of the consumption with any degree of accuracy. I was skeptical when I installed it and its poor performance is evident every day. I'm a master electrician and I wouldn't sell this product to my worst enemy.

Excellent product!!
Customer review from Square D by Schneider Electric logo
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I am very happy to have found this wiser energy !! My brother is an electrician and he helped me install it, he says it was easy! How did wiser energy help me in my economy? I had to download the sense application on my cell phone and connect to the device via Wi-Fi, super easy! Once connected I began to identify the different appliances that I have in my house, (washer, dryer, stove, ac, refrigerator, and others) and in that application it tells me the energy that each one is consuming and where I can start saving !! It tells me that devices are on, I can also turn off and on lights and see how much energy it consumes !! I can see my energy consumption away from home and if I mistakenly leave something on! so I am happy that I will be able to reduce my electricity bills thanks to this wonder, this month it helped me reduce my bill by 40%, I live in Arizona and in the months of July-September my electricity bills are very high so It's hot here, and the air conditioning does not stop turning on all day, the wiser energy will help me reduce my bills!

What an awesome product!
Customer review from Square D by Schneider Electric logo
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is a very unique gadget! We can finally track which appliances we own uses so much electricity. Installing this is pretty easy. We did it ourselves and my husband guided me on how to connect the wires properly. But first, turn off all the main power source! Installing the app is a breeze. Once we have it installed, we created an account and paired it. It actually didn't take a very long time to recognize the appliances that we own. I think in 10 days, it identified a lot of the appliances already. The app is very easy to use. It will show you all the devices that you own and next to it is how much watts is being used. Under the "Now" tab, it will show you all the appliances or electronics that are currently running and you can see the status per electronics such as estimated cost/year, average cost per month, etc.. Now our home is has a lot of appliances, gadgets/electronics so our electricity is always high. Under "Trends" tab, you can compare your usage with other sense users in your state. Mine is scary high! So with this device, we can finally figure out which ones are eating up electricity and then we can start making changes. It will really save us money once it recognizes all of the appliances/devices we have running. Oh and I also want to add that my other favorite thing is that I can turn any of my smart devices using the app. There's so many other great features here but I cannot stress enough how much it will help us in the next few weeks save electricity and hopefully lower our electric bill. Best part is, my husband cannot blame it on me leaving the lights on all the time because thank goodness, sense said it barely uses electricity! We highly recommend this neat electric tracker!

Works well
Customer review from Square D by Schneider Electric logo
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] First off, my husband is a commercial electrician. He installed our Sense unit. I watched him install, and it ony took about 15 minutes. Mainly because he had to drill through the metal panel into brick, lol. The install was easy and straight forward for him. When I mentioned to him we were getting one to test, he knew immediately what I was talking about, and was excited about it. First off, this monitors your energy usage throughout your home. It does not save you money, unless you adjust your usage becaise of what the unit shows you. It really is neat to see what energy your units use. For example, when our room air conditioner kicks on, I can see how much energy it's using. We have whole house air, but we like it cold in our bedroom. As the Sense app notices new items in home, you are given the opportunity to name each unit. I like being able to personalise it. The app is free to install. We are running it on our Note 10s without issue. Overall, it's been a well made unit. It runs smoothly, and lets us keep an eagle eye on our energy usage, which we like. I received this to test but all opinions are honest and my own.

This device is for patient people! I've had mine installed just over one month. With time devices are learned and identified. Mine has discovered six devices so far: refrigerator, refrigerator light, microwave, water heater, dryer igniter, and bathroom vanity light. Some commonly used things like a tv, oven, computers, garage door opener, and washing machine haven't been discovered. Any incandescent lighting has been discovered, but no energy saving bulbs have. I would say Sense has not saved me any money. It has made me aware how much or little electricity devices use. I was surprised opening my refrigerator used 132 watts when the light turns on. It uses a 40 watt appliance bulb! I thought my desktop computer with 700 watt power supply and monitor would use much more than 170 watts! I also discovered my "always on" draw is 68 watts. Surprisingly low. On the surprisingly high side I discovered my refrigerator turns on EVERY HOUR for 35 minutes and uses at least 36% of my total electricity use. I wish I had the option of installing solar panels as Sense would support them. Overall I have no regrets with my purchase.

Well unfortunately this would not work with my particular Breaker Box set-up. I think the normal breaker box has the necessary wires available for you to clip the amp draw probes but mine had a non-wire solution that prevents proper installation. I'll post a picture of what I'm talking about here. I think the idea and product is a great tool and idea to monitor your system and electric use but prior to install be sure it will work with you system.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
Good for overall energy monitoring, does not (yet) live up to promises. I was excited to try the Wiser Energy Monitor because I have been curious on the energy consumption of several of our appliances as well as how our usage varies over the day, week. INSTALLATION If you are not comfortable working inside your electrical breaker panel then you should have an electrician install this (as recommended by the manufacturer). That being said, they made the physical installation as straightforward as possible: - there are two current sensor clips to put on each of the two phases coming into the panel - connect the two supply wires to a double pole breaker (so each wire is on a different phase) - remove a knockout and insert the WiFi antenna so that it is outside the panel (but hidden in the wall) - connect the above to the monitor a close up the panel A "gotcha": Powering up the monitor and connecting to the WiFi was a bit confusing as it did not follow the instructions - it is supposed to chime when powered up, in fact it gives no indication it is working after powering up. After powering up you need to download the Sense energy app, connect to the monitor and set up the WiFi - only after the monitor connected to WiFi network did it "chime". USAGE After connecting the app to the monitor will immediately see your electrical usage in real time and can walk around your house turning things on and off to see how much power they are using. You can even put in the rate your electric company charges per kWh so that you can see usage and actual cost per day, week, month. One of the selling points of this device is that it is supposed to automatically detect devices, at which point it allows you to name them and, if you wish, add make, model, etc and monitor their power usage. It took three days to identify the first device, which I think was the garage door opener (we have two identical units, so unsurprisingly the monitor identified them both as a single device). After a month of use it has identified only 7 devices: - Chest Freezer - Standalone Dehumidifier - Electric Clothes Dryer (heating element only, not the motor) - Small Under Counter Fridge - Garage Door Opener - Microwave Oven - Washing Machine (agitator motor only, not internal water heater) To be fair, we have a gas stove/oven, gas water heater. However the house is a good size 3 bed with a host of appliances including HVAC with heat pump, large fridge/freezer, electric kettle, toaster, etc, etc. All these other appliances, devices are lumped together in the usage category of "Always On" or "Other" which is where the vast majority of electrical usage is occurring. Reading reviews on the internet indicate that user experiences vary somewhat in this regard and probably depend on the size of the house, number of appliances, etc - some people have had lots of devices be detected fairly quickly, but I suspect most people have a similar experience to mine. You cannot train the monitor by say telling it to detect a device, turning it on and off and then naming it - you have to just hope that eventually the devices will be detected. From a technical point of view, what the monitor is trying to do is solve a very hard problem in as much as it has to: - expect a unique electrical usage pattern that is unique to every device (without being offered any close by the user as to what devices he/she is using) - pick out the above pattern from a host of other signals/noise occurring at the same time As an Electrical Engineer, I find it highly unlikely that this model will be highly successful and therefore am to terribly disappointed that it does not work very well. SUMMARY - Easy to install - Great for getting an idea of real time whole home power usage - Can see trends over the day/week/month/year - Can use it to walk around and identify power hogs by turning them on/off while observing usage in the app - Don't expect detailed device use and be pleasantly surprised if it works - Manufacturer has good support and is responsive

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
I was interested in the Wiser Energy Home Monitor because my power company was recently logging incorrect data from my smart power meter, claiming that my power bill would be $900. The power company eventually fixed the problem, but until they fixed the problem, the only way I was able to document my actual power usage was to take photos of my power meter throughout the day for a few weeks. I selected this Energy Monitor to see if it could log my energy usage, help me better analyze my power consumption, and know when my power company was using bad data for my usage. After receiving the Wiser Energy Monitor and reviewing the installation instructions and video, I have learned that this product is probably not compatible with the electrical panel on my house. The product assumes you only have two main service cables that are easily accessible at the top or bottom of your panel. But my Siemens "side-by-side" 200A panel has four main service cables feeding the breakers from the utility section of the panel--two red and two black wires. Because of my panel design, I am pretty sure I can't use it to monitor my whole house energy consumption. Instead of clamping the main service cables, I might be able to clamp the wires for 2-3 circuits at most, but I don't know if the Wiser software will be able to interpret just a few circuits, as it is presumably expects to be analyzing usage for the entire home. Before you buy the Wiser, I recommend the following: 1. Watch the Schneider Electric Wiser installation YouTube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NhkeFxzkkRo 2. Check your electrical panel or have an electrician check your panel to verify that it has only TWO main service cables that are easily accessible for clamping 3. Verify that you have space for a new 15A to 30A 2-pole circuit breaker (or have one you can tap into) 4. If your panel is outside, verify that you have room inside your panel for the Wiser unit, and a spare knockout on the bottom of the panel for the antenna I am going to have to call my electrician to see if there are any options to try and make the Wiser work with my panel, but I suspect it isn't compatible.
