The short answer is not yet.
Every device that consumes electricity does so in a distinct way that can be identified through analysis of the electrical signature. The larger the power consumption, the less data is required to determine the device with accuracy. The lower the power consumption, the more data is required to determine the device with accuracy. Devices that consume very little power are difficult to detect upon installation. Over time, the CurrentSee Energy Monitoring System becomes more accurate and reliable with automatic detection.
There is no subscription fee to access the application and to begin tracking your power consumption. As our company grows, we will explore options based upon clear value propositions and feedback from the customer base.
The CurrentSee Energy Monitoring System is highly efficient with data transfer and uses minimal bandwidth (~1 MB a day).
The CurrentSee Clip are designed to be installed in main panels that house 240V power and less. Future Clips are being developed for higher voltages.
Yes. The CurrentSee Clip uses a proprietary method to wirelessly measure Voltage which allows the software to log many different values with just a simple clip installation including Volts, Amps, Watts, Watt-hours, Frequency (Hz), Volt-Amps, Volt-Amp Reactive, and Total Harmonic Distortion
The CurrentSee Clip uses less than 1 Watt of power to perform all of the tasks and report the data wirelessly. That is the equivalent to the amount of power used by a 60W lightbulb being turned on for 1 minute.
The CurrentSee Energy Monitoring System is a universal low voltage solution that provides real time data on electrical energy flow through wires. The CurrentSee Clip is appropriate for any application that uses 300V power or less making it useful for both homes and businesses. We will be releasing a 500V solution in the near future.
Surges do not affect the CurrentSee Energy Monitoring System, although they will be logged so the customer will be aware of the frequency of such events and have the information available to determine if any additional protection is required.
No an electrician is not required, although we will add the caveat that if you feel uncomfortable removing the front face of the main panel and clipping this sensor around a live wire, then you should hire an electrician. The CurrentSee Clip was designed to be installed without ever disrupting the power in less than 5 minutes by an inexperienced person so the cost of the electrician will be minimal.
Yes. It is available for purchase online and can be used anywhere on earth as is without any modifications as long as there is a tiny amount of current running through the line and there is a viable wireless connection.
