I have two of the v1 Aeon HEM. One clamp of one of them monitors my microwave so we don’t forget things we’re warming. The other clamp monitors my washing machine in combination with a status light sensor (my machine is a difficult case).
My second HEM monitors both legs of my home power. With this driver, I can see separate clamp readings, and the total usage. Works great and as I understand it, better than the Gen 5 which I saw mention that the driver isn’t showing separate readings for each clamp like it should.
The v1 is inexpensive, reliable, and really accurate. I had a Sense HEM for a while, and while that didn’t work out for me because of my difficult to monitor washing machine, I was able to check my Aeon DSB09104 against the Sense and it was very close. Within 30 watts if I’m remembering correctly.
Here’s what it looks like in the driver details.
Here’s a simple dashboard I whipped together just for an occasional overall glance at our usage.
For the washing machine and Microwave, I use a slightly modified version of the Laundry monitoring driver originally written by @mike.maxwell I’m not concerned about the use of my washer and microwave, I just want to know when they’re running, and when they have stopped so I can trigger voice and text notifications. The code linked to has button 3 (running) for the washer. I monitor my 220v dryer differently now, so for the Microwave, I also added button 4 push to the code so I know when it’s running too.
