Workaround for Energy Report within Smartthings?


I have several devices integrated within my setup and grew fond of using the Smartthings Energy Report App. I have some Aqara Smart Plugs that feed their respective reports to the energy App and some Frient Smart plugs that don’t.

In the Smartthings web dashboard I’ve managed to find that the Frient plugs don’t have the “powerConsumptionReport” attribute. All the Plugs are running the latest firmware versions. Has anyone ran into this? Anyone managed to find a workaround using other drivers or something?


Hi @nf098

powerConsumptionReport is a capability that uses smartthings to send energy consumption reports to the Energy app, but it is not the only requirement.

I use it in my drivers, but it doesn’t seem to work.

Smartthings decides which devices are supported in the Energy app.

I don’t know what criteria they follow, is the device being certified in smartthings one of them???


I’m not sure if I understand the question, but is there a way to find which devices does Smartthings allow to access the Energy App?

Nope, not other than press releases. It seems to be a pay-to-play and region locked integration. They recently added Tapo products, but only in the UK as far as I can tell.

Well, I guess I will be ordering Aqara in the future and keep the Frient ones for things I don’t care about the consumption and only the ability to turn on/off.

Thanks all
