Experiences with Aeon labs Z-Wave Home Energy Monitor HEM 1?

Postby frcornelissen » Sat Mar 29, 2014 10:15 pm

Who could share experiences with the Aeon labs Z-Wave Home Energy Monitor HEM 1 (Single Phase)? The clamp you need to clip around the electricity cable seems huge around a thin cable. Is metering of the energy accurate if the clamp is hanging around the thin cable?

Due to the fact that it is a clamping module it wil not be as acurate as a P1 contact or a led pulse counter

However it is working fine here ( 3 clamps, single fase)

Thank you for sending it back to us, however notice that the product itself is good and it is too bad that you have bad experiance.
We have measured with the product and it was good, even better in low currents then the P1-smart meter but offcourse in high current the smart meter is better, it has approx 5% accuracy also when measuring solarpanels.
