Congratulations on your acquisition of the Home Energy Meter! Installed in an electricity box, this energy meter will monitor the total consumption of electricity used by your entire home -- or an entire building. Its intelligent electric clamps will report that energy use back to your Vera Smart Controller in in real time, measured in watts or kilowatt-hours. You can see how much electricity your home really uses, and at what times of day. The usage is reported back to you on your Vera Dashbaord.
The installation of your Home Energy Meter has two major parts:
- The pairing of the meter into your Vera smart home network
- The installation of it into your AC mains electricity box
IMPORTANT!! The electrical installation of your meter into your circuit box should only be done a licensed electrician with knowledge and understanding of electrical systems and electrical safety!!
You can perform the pairing half of the installation process, linking the meter with your Vera network, yourself.
