I bought the old model Aeon Smart Meter Plug, the one with the short extension cord.
I want to place it on my wine cooler and have it alert me if the cooler is accidentally turned off. However it doesn’t seem to be updating the power usage unless I press refresh. Which is making this useless.
The plug is configured with “Z Wave Metering Switch” as it’s device code. I didn’t see any device code for Aeon Smart Switch.
Is there better device code for this device ?
Are there zwave settings I need to configure to have it report power usage ?
As a plugged in device I would expect zwave updates whenever the data changes.
I also have to figure out a way to detect power off because it report 0W when running anyway, it reports 0 when the fan is off, 2W when the fan is running (it runs every 30 seconds) and it reports 147W when it is running the compressor. I think I need to write a smart app which will report if 0 power after 15min or something like that. That is assuming this plug can report its data correctly.
