Links to new products added to the Energy Saving and Monitoring site will be added here.
Added Aeon Labs Smart Switch to the appliance energy monitoring page. Sold by Smart Things NZ.
Added Fibaro retailers and installers to the home energy monitoring page.
Added details for the Ultra Energy saving device NZ.
The manufacturer and local distributor claim this device operates by inducing quantum tunneling in room temperature copper wire.
If so, an unknown manufacturer has succeeded where the best scientists in the world have so far failed. Very unlikely.
The open energy monitor shop is now open.
Transmitters, base stations and displays require soldering and firmware loading.
Posted technical details for the three battery of the EMA-1 energy meter referenced as 'type 2' and disassembled views.
The 'type 2' contains a metering chip able to calculate power use more accurately for a wider range of appliance types. The metering chip is a Cirrus Logic CS5460C-ISZ.
The version now referenced as 'type 1' uses a simpler analog circuit design.
The manufacturers model number is exactly the same for both versions.
Added the Insteon energy monitoring modules. Not yet available in NZ but maybe in the near future.
Added the Watts Clever Wireless Energy Monitor for Smart Meters.
Uses an optical sensor to interface with smart meter optical output.
Added the HuntKey standby eliminator board. One master, three slaves, four always on.
