SmartThings energy-monitoring outlet Edge driver?

I have an older SmartThings brand energy-monitoring outlet (plug) - one of the roundish ones. It used to work fine for energy monitoring, until it recently updated to the Edge driver. The driver now appears to be for a Zigbee switch (rather than an outlet or plug). It only registers on and off. Does anyone know if this will be updated at some point to include energy monitoring? Or should I be switching to another Edge driver for this device, and if so, how would I do that?

That’s odd. Mine is on an edge driver called Zigbee switch as well, but I still have power reporting.

Maybe you have a newer version? I have the one that came as part of the package with the 2nd generation hub.

Try @Mariano_Colmenarejo “ZigBee Switch Mc” driver. It supports power monitoring.

Hi, Paul. Thanks for the suggestion. Is there a page somewhere that explains how to do that? When I click on “Select Different Driver” in the app, it says “No results found.”

Sorry I gave you the wrong name. It is “ZigBee switch power Mc”. The following has a link to install the driver. In the first post go down to where it says “add a little smartness your things” and click on the link to install the driver.

Hi, @Paul_Oliver . Thanks for the instructions. I installed the driver and selected it in the app. When I select the device, though, it says “Couldn’t get device’s status” and still doesn’t show any power consumption.

If you are using an Android phone clear the cache and see if that helps.

I’m on iphone. I tried closing the SmartThings app and relaunching it, but that didn’t help. :frowning:

Maybe @Mariano_Colmenarejo has some ideas.

Hi @Zymeth

The stock Zigbee switch driver has several smartthings plugs with the switch-smarplug or switch-power profile. They measure power but not energy.

In my Zigbee switch power Mc driver they are with switch-power-energy profile and measure power and energy.

Your device may have some variation in fingerprints, manufacturer or model and is pairing with the wrong profile or generic switch.

Install zigbee Thing Mc and make a driver change to see exactly the fingerprints and cluster of the device.

Thanks @Paul_Oliver

That’s the one I have

Okay, I installed the Zigbee Thing Mc. Here is the info it shows:

Excuse me, the font size of your mobile means that the complete information is not displayed, please, could you capture it on the device’s history screen?

Oops, sorry. I didn’t see that. Here you go:

This device should work for power meter and should not work for energy meter, has not cluster 0702
I don’t know why my driver also has an energy meter.

@troy_owens Please, does the energy information work for you in your smartthing outletv4 that I added a year ago?

No, it’s currently not working Mariano

It used to work for energy metering perfectly in the Groovy system. It only stopped working when the driver changed over to the Zigbee Edge driver. @eric182 said his works as well, though maybe he has a slightly different model/version.


It is actually only reporting power, not energy usage. It’s edge driver is “zigbee switch.”


Let’s focus a bit on the problem.
The DTH smartpower-outlet.groovy with fingerprints of the Plug smartthings ouletv4 only measures power. Active Power (W). Does not inform Energy Meter (Kw/h)

definition(name: "SmartPower Outlet", namespace: "smartthings", author: "SmartThings", mnmn: "SmartThings", vid: "generic-switch-power", ocfDeviceType: "oic.d.smartplug", runLocally: true, minHubCoreVersion: '000.017.0012', executeCommandsLocally: true) {
		capability "Actuator"
		capability "Switch"
		capability "Power Meter"
		capability "Configuration"
		capability "Refresh"
		capability "Sensor"
		capability "Health Check"
		capability "Outlet"

Power Meter and Energy Meter They are two different things, the capture that @eric182 sends only shows Power, active power (W).

Energy meter refers to the total accumulated consumption in kW/h.

This device only reports Power Meter (W) and I will have to change the profile in my Zigbee Switch Power Mc driver
