Clip & Installation

How many clips will I need?

You need one CurrentSee clip on each one of the incoming phases. Typically homes are two phase and businesses use three phase. And each electrical panel requires its appropriate number of clips.   The number of panels typically is based on how large a home or business is. As an example a typical 1,500 sq ft home would have one panel, and a typical grocery store would have about three. If using just one CurrentSee clip, you would be able to detect and measure the  attached devices and electrical parameters (pro version application) of that phase or individual circuit breaker.

How do you connect CurrentSee to the internet?

After Installing CurrentSee into the electrical panel and connecting to CurrentSee with your mobile app you will be able to configure WiFi connection with the application. Typically if your device has access to the WiFi network near CurrentSee then CurrentSee will be able to automatically connect. Please note to follow installation instructions carefully.

Can this be installed in any electrical panel?

The CurrentSee Clip will work in panels that house 240V power and less. Future clips will be developed for higher voltages.

Is this for a home or a business?

The CurrentSee Energy Monitoring System is a universal solution that provides real time data on electrical energy flow through wires. The initial CurrentSee Clip is appropriate for any application that uses 240V power or less making it useful for both homes and businesses. We will be releasing a 480V solution in the near future.

Do I need an electrician to install?

No an electrician is not required, although we will add the caveat that if you feel uncomfortable removing the front electrical panel and clipping this 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.

Is this available outside the US?

Yes. It is available for purchase online and can be used anywhere on earth (50 or 60 Hz) as is without any modifications.

Application

Can the CurrentSee Energy Monitoring System detect all of my devices?

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. Sometimes that data requirement is a higher resolution and sometimes it is more data over time. Over time, the CurrentSee Energy Monitoring System becomes more accurate and reliable with automatic detection. In future iterations, the system will be plug and play and entirely automatic.

Is there a subscription fee for the app?

There is no subscription fee to access the app and to begin tracking your power consumption. This insight into your electrical network and into the health of your devices is extremely valuable. As the identification of devices becomes more automatic and the functionality of the app is developed, we will consider a subscription model for the more advanced functionality. Any future subscription fee models will only be considered with substantial feedback from the growing customer base.
