Different DTH for Metering Power Usage?


(Tony B.) #1

I have a SmartThings 2017 Model and it doesn’t have any total Wh (or kWh) on the DH.

Can anyone suggest a better DTH for what I want?

If you are talking about the Samsung Outlet, I do not believe it support any energy monitoring functions. Just a simple on and off capability. (There are other physical devices that support energy monitoring functions and work with SmartThings.)

It’s the 2017 version where I can see the power usage in the blue area while it’s turned on.

My mistake. Try the Zigbee Switch Power device handler (in the pull down when you edit “My Devices”. I do not think that they can provide total on the basic handlers. A lot of discussion in the forums on collecting and integrating the data from the device to get a total reading.

That gives the exact same thing.

No cumulative.

I do not believe that cumulative total is a function in the plug (may be wrong). You may be able to find a smart application that collects this data on the refresh cycles and then integrates it into daily totals. Will be somewhat accurate.

I know of one switch that collects and summarizes this data internally.

Reference post.

Thanks very much!
