I’ve been trying to find a device to help me monitor the energy use of two or three outlets in the house. My criteria for the device, with the most important first, is: officially supported by ST, in-wall form factor, and z-wave plus. I’m struggling to find a device that meets the first two, much less all three. Couple options I’ve considered. Would love to know if I’m missing something.
iHome SP8 - Officially supported, but not in-wall or z-wave. After reading @JDRoberts recent post in a similar thread, maybe Z-wave isn’t the way I should go. However, I’ve read several threads where users are having issues with iHome, and I’m still not clear if I can get the energy monitoring from the SP8 into ST easily. It is on sale right now on Amazon.
Iris smart plug - Not officially supported, nor in-wall, but z-wave. Relatively cheap.
Centralite plug-in module - Officially support, but not in-wall or z-wave. Cheap.
Enerwave has “smart energy” duplex outlet - It is in-wall and z-wave, but not officially supported. The model in the app is the non-energy sensing version of the outlet. Expensive at the sources I can find.
Aeotec nano switch/dimmer - Is in-wall and z-wave, but not officially supported. I’m not sure there is even a custom DTH w/the energy features if I wanted to use it.
So yea. Not sure where to go here; any feedback is welcome.
