I installed one of these today in my circuit breaker. Pretty cool to see it monitor usage in real-time. Also cool that it can send me alerts, reports, etc!

Okay, so it comes w/up to 16 probes. Did you get the 8, _x_, 16?
Pics of how yours installed on the panel?
It will be very interesting to see 7 day vs 14 &30 day cycles.

I had them quit sending me the reports. I always came up the worst of my group. Their suggestions on how to reduce electric usage did not apply to me at all. They have no idea how I am using the electricity. All of their suggestions are things that I did years ago other than replacing the refrigerator. The electric usage of my refrigerator is comparable to what a new refrigerator would use.

Other than the fact that it is going to die one of these days, there is no logical reason to replace.

I pondered using that system but settled on Sense system instead.

It helped me balance the load through my breaker box. Find an attic fan that was costing 22 bucks a month, and alerted me when my well pump was cycling more than normal (broken pipe)

It payed for itself already.

Our last kitchen fridge lasted just shy of 8 years with many, many kiddos. The laundry room fridge is 10 y/o unit from a friend who was moving and didn't need it... happened to replace our 12 y/o unit that we donated to habitat for humanity 2 years ago and it was working fine.
