Frequently asked question

I need a system to track electric costs by subpanel...can you recommend one?

I would recommend Eyedro. You will need an Eyedro for each panel. You can then associate them all to one account for real time viewing and get a weekly report with usage and costs. I am monitoring my home, cottage, a rental property and a washer/dryer pair (for kicks).

I have huge privacy concerns! i would love to purchase your product if it didn't require me to upload data. can i run local software without upload

The privacy concern is realistic. Each device in a hone has a different power vs tine profile that can be mapped. Some, like a garage door opener are likely to be easily identified by the current profile and run time. Other, like indoor lamps TV sets tablet chargers, etc may be impossible to distinguish. General information like is/not at home and general activity type, housework, meal preparation,,recreation are readily determined.

Does the Eyedro module run off mains power? If so, what power output is the supplied power supply?

Yes, my Eyedro module is powered by a 120VAC to 5VDC adapter. The manufacturer support info (including product manual) is at eyedro.com/support

How do I do solar monitoring?

Update: The new Eyedro WIFI (EYEFI-2) model does support solar monitoring (directional sensors, true power, amperage, voltage, power factor). https://www.amazon.com/Eyedro-Electricity-Monitor-Supports-Metering/dp/B07KBBD8C5/ … see more Update: The new Eyedro WIFI (EYEFI-2) model does support solar monitoring (directional sensors, true power, amperage, voltage, power factor). https://www.amazon.com/Eyedro-Electricity-Monitor-Supports-Metering/dp/B07KBBD8C5/ Please contact us if you require additional info.

    Great little device, great website, only one tiny complaint

    I purchased this a week ago, and installed it literally in a few minutes. I did not even look at the directions, it’s just too simple.
    The install is really easy if you’re at all handy and not afraid of your load panel. Simply put, you remove the cover from your load panel, open the sensor by pushing in the little clip, slide the sensor around one of the power mains, and clip it shut. Repeat for the other sensor. Drop the wires out of the panel and replace the cover. Then connect the sensors to the EyeDro box, run an ethernet cable to it, and plug in the power. Voila!
    Next, go to their website and register an account, and either enter the serial number from the box or click the ‘Scan network’ option which will find it.
    That’s it, you’re up and running!
    The box itself is very small, about the size of a deck of cards. There are no indicator lights on it, but it does include screws and a mounting template if you want to wall mount it.
    If you have not decided yet, you can go to their website and play with a demo version of the system, which is nice.
    It has the following reports:
    * Highlights. This shows a bar chart with recent power usage per hour, a meter that shows current usage (and is very responsive), today’s total usage, today’s projected total usage, a comparison to last month, the minimum and maximum amount of power used, the current rate (if you entered it into the setup, such as a tiered rate like I have), your estimated bill to date, and an estimate for your total bill.
    The best part about the Highlights is that the meter is VERY RESPONSIVE. I can watch the needle move up and down in near real-time. I can see when the stove is turned on, then watch as it cycles the burner on/off to maintain heat. It also shows a +/- designation that shows how much more/less power is being used presently compared to the last time the needle moved. For example, right now it shows -25w after a fan was turned off. If something else turns on, it would show +[number] to indicate the difference.
    * Insights. This shows your usage compared to other forms of power, such as gas, coal, natural gas, etc. I don’t find this very useful.
    * Live. This shows a very detailed chart of minute-by-minute power usage.
    * Summary. This shows a bar chart with hourly totals of power usage.
    * Comparison. This shows a comparison of power used to the previous month on a daily basis.
    * Bills. This shows a 12 month billing history, daily cost, daily average cost, consumption per tier, and so forth.
    * Reports. This shows a weekly report of usage compared to previous weeks.
    * Phantom energy. This shows your minimum usage demand, and helps you track down low-use devices that cost you money while they are supposedly turned off.
    * What’s it cost. This is a usage calculator that allows you to pick from a wide range of devices to determine how much they cost you to operate.
    * Net meter. If you have solar, or some other supplemental power supply system, this will tell you how much power you have generated versus how much you have used.
    The mobile website has all of these features as well, and has a really well done ‘swipe’ design that allows you to swipe left/right across multiple screens per area.
    The site also has a variety of setup options, including a ‘rates’ feature. This allows you to enter your rates from the power company, in one of three ways:
    * Fixed Price
    * Tiered
    * Time of Use
    You can also specify if you are billed:
    * Monthly
    * Bi-monthly
    * Quarterly
    Finally, you can also tell it that you have the following fees/charges:
    * Fixed fees
    * Variable (per kWh) fees
    * Adjustment factor
    * Taxes
    * Rebates
    My only complaints: You have to login to the website almost every time you visit, even if it’s only been an hour or two. On the mobile site this often results in a box saying ‘error’ and it never goes away, so you cannot login. You have to close the tab/browser, or restart your phone to get back in. (I have reported this issue to them as of 5/10/2015 so hopefully they will fix this.) It’s just a little hassle to have to login each time. (SEE PHOTOS)
    In addition, the ‘Dial’ meter is inconsistent. Some times it has the needle in the red zone for (example) 4 kWh, and then later it will have the 4 kWh in the yellow zone. It’s not labelled either, and it should be. (SEE PHOTOS)
    All in all I really like it. This is exactly what I have been looking for, it’s cheap, easy to use, and has really helped me understand what the energy hogs in my house are (hint: it’s my HVAC).
    Finally, I got mine as an Amazon Warehouse Deal, for only $75! The box was very beat up, but the device was perfect and works great. Save yourself a few bucks if you can!

    Not bad for the money

    Not very user friendly on a android phone, lap top was much better. The magnetic looking peace that clamps around wire was broken but supper clue fixed that. I feel like it is accurate but have nothing to compare it to. I would buy again.

    Unbelievable bargain and futureproofed!

    I’ve had this unit installed, a little less than 48 hours so far and I can already tell that this is an amazingly well designed product that I will enjoy using for years to come!!!
    Device Installation:
    I only have 50A service to my house (it’s an old house). I bought 60A CTs. 200A CTs it comes with are pretty huge. The 60A CTs are itty bitty and EASILY fit into my house’s ancient cutoff switch! Installation was a breeze. CT wires are super super long too so it aids in the ease of installation!
    Device Setup:
    Super easy. Connect and web into the eyedro device, add your wifi details, and done!
    Web account:
    Make an account and then enter serial number printed on the device on the website, and done!
    You can even reverse the CT direction on the site in case you installed one backwards (like I did!) BRILLIANT! Why that reversal feature isn’t in all of these devices boggles my mind…
    API:
    RESTful API. Simple, easy, effective. Wanna know the best part? YOU CAN QUERY THE DEVICE ITSELF! If for some reason Eyedro goes out of business, you aren’t left with a useless piece of electronic that tries to phone home and stops working when it can’t see the Eyedro servers. You can either use a third party application or write your own (like I did) to query the device and display the relevant info where you need it! (like on my MagicMirror screen)
    Web interface:
    This interface is gorgeous. I come from efergy which is absolute trash. Eyedro gives you all the data you need, and even splits up your CTs on a beautiful, fast updating graph. It is difficult for me to overstate how much I love the interface on this website. It’s relatively clean, TONS of information, and they’re all in relatively intuitive areas. Let’s face it.. if you’re interested in installing whole house power monitoring, you’re probably a nerd. This web interface gives you the numbers and stats you want to mega nerd out.
    Conclusion:
    Want an easy to use API for your own devices (my main use case)? BUY IT
    Want to customize the CTs you stick inside your electrical boxes for more accuracy and space limitations? BUY IT
    Want a clean and beautiful web interface with TONS of numbers? BUY IT
    Want to use this device well after the company Eyedro has died? BUY IT
    dOn’t cARe AbOuT pOwEr mONItoRiNG? Why are you reading this review???

    This thing is dead accurate

    I have had this installed for 3 years now. I can compute my usage off of the data it provides with complete accuracy. It absolutely matches my utility company readings. In my case there was no access to the power between the meter and the panel so I clipped it right on to the utility’s service entrance. It works great. Also the price is unbeatable for this functionality. Their old webapp was definitely a bit kludgy. It worked OK but entering rate data wasn’t super intuitive. Superficially the new app looks like an improvement, but I haven’t spent much time with it. I’d much rather have a desktop app, but the downside is that capturing history would be more difficult if you don’t keep the app running. It would probably be easy enough to redirect DNS and capture the data.
