Hi. Are there other vera compatible alternatives to Aeotec Home Energy Meter Gen 5 in Home Energy monitoring? If none, are there other alternatives that work with a few tweaks via apps/luup codes that is working with Vera plus? Any experience from the community?
I’m still using this old plugin here with a CurrentCost Envir energy monitor, which brings the whole home energy usage Wattage / Kilowatts into Vera as a device.
There is Zipato too, but I have not tried it myself.
However there is an alternative. Instead of whole house reporting you can make all small plugs/outlets report and then summarize. Would not accurate of course but at least some level of visibility. I have recently found out my furnace when doing nothing eats 20W.
And you can use https://hundredgraphs.com for graphs and analytics. I am with them, ask anything
