The IAmMeter Bi-directional Single Phase WiFi Power Meter accurately monitors one single-phase circuit. It can help you size an inverter, solar array and battery pack for a solar installation, as well as accurately seeing when a device is using how much power.
You can use it to bill a tenant on a sub-distribution board for the electricity they use, or monitor and check your overall own electricity bill, with the ability to go into detail monthly, daily, hourly.
Whether you’re a professional solar installer / electrician or just someone wanting to keep tabs on your home energy consumption, the IAmMeter is exactly what you need. This Bi-directional single-phase WiFi Energy Meter will monitor the exact energy usage of a specific circuit, giving you real-time monitoring of electricity usage, as well as historical data displayed in hourly, daily or monthly graphs.
Use it to pinpoint the maximum or peak loads, and which hours of the day you use the most electricity. Information that is critical in getting the specification of a solar system accurate, or finding exactly what device is using so much electricity and when.
The energy meter is easy to connect, and you do not need to modify any circuits since the current monitor simply clamps around the live wire of the circuit being monitored.
Example: Connecting it across the main Eskom live wire into your home gives you a complete overview hourly, daily, monthly of your overall energy usage. You could also connect it to the stove, geyser or any other circuit in your home to get detailed energy usage graphs and information for a specific device or circuit.
The meter stores the data by connecting to the Internet via your WiFi router and uploading information to a cloud-based server. You can then access this information via a website or a mobile APP (Android or IOS). There is no subscription fee for the cloud-based service. It is already included in the device purchase and remains permanently free. Via these interfaces, you have access to usage graphs, historical consumption, and estimated billing using the costs you provide per kWh.
