I am working on this project right now. Was there any progress on an Energy/Power Meter? I’ve got the Arduino board and several CT sensors that I’ve wired up to measure power to individual circuits at the breaker. I’m very close to having everything working without the SmartThings shield and code–still ironing out a cumulative power error I found in my code. Should be spending time on it this weekend. Would love to know if other are working or have worked on this.
I’m hoping that I can send data from 16 CT sensors back to my SmartThings app on my phone! Maybe I can have icons for each circuit color coded??
Has anyone noticed the Aeon Energy Meters reporting phantom readings? When I plug in the clamps this meter reports between 7-14 watts of power flowing even if the clamps are not installed. If I unplug one clamp the phantom reading is cut in half and unplugging the other clamp the reading drops to zero. The wattage error isn’t that much but over a months time it adds up to to many kilowatts above what I actually use.
I just got one today, was able to pair but SM app thinks its a outler switch. To pair I had to plug and unplug and then one time plugged in, held button on back until red light flash fast let go, held again for one second , light continued to blink slowly then blinked fast and paired, maybe 10 seconds.
Any app help?? or configuration help. I do not have the mini hub, do I need one of those to get readings?
mattjfrank, thank you very much. had to google “smartthings ide” did not know what it was or that it existed!!! Changed the device type like you said and now it looks like it is reporting - 1014 watts, if I go to activity feed it is up and down and looks to be reporting multiple times a minite. Very Cool!!! Thanks again!!!

I got one of these (Aeon Labs HEM v1) and updated the firmware and was able to get it connected to hub and the Device Type associated… but not currently working.
I’ve had a couple messages in an old thread electric company related thread, which I’m moving to here because it is more topical:
I’m no expert on my circuit breaker box, but have a basic understanding of what two phase house input wires should look like … two thick wires incoming from the electric company meter (and one thick common neutral).
Close enough (but not exactly) what is depicted on Aeon website:
There may be some more detailed PDF documentation somewhere (not in the package!), but this seems clear:
But I don’t know if the selected Device Type is the correct one (it is a v1 of the meter, and I upgraded the firmware before adding to network). I only see one Aeon Home Energy Meter Device Type available published.
Yup. “Clicking” the configure tile does not appear to do anything, but that’s a user-interface limitation, I suppose. It should change color for a few moments or something!
But the detailed event log shows configure requests. I’ll have to put this aside for a bit until I splice up an old extension cord to test & debug with…
