With an optional efergy enagage internet hub
(sold separately) you can also view your energy usage remotely via an internet connected PC or via your iPhone or Google Android enabled device.This model includes a Din Rail mounted transmitter which uses mains power,
and an innovative memory function that allows you to see how much you have used today, yesterday and in the last week or month. The hand-held display unit also shows your daily average so you can see when you are using more electricity than normal, and how your average usage reduces as you change the way you do things.
Research has proved that knowing how much electricity you use and being aware of real time changes will help consumers manage their energy usage and cost. Product Features:
- Includes a Din Rail mounted transmitter (operation does not require any batteries)
- Portable display unit will be operated by batteries (up to 12 month
battery life with 2400 mAh alkaline batteries - batteries are not

The key advantage of the Efergy monitors over other electricity monitors is the addition of an in-depth memory function. This enables the user to see exactly how much electricity is being used per day, per week, and per month.
Memory makes it far easier to compare electricity usage on a day by day, week by week, and month by month basis which is particularly useful if you are interested in reducing consumption. The energy saving toolkit:
Together with the monitor unit, sensor, and wireless transmitter comes an energy saving booklet and guide which will take you through HOW to save energy and what how these relate to your energy use.
Please note, the product pictures show the currency in British Pounds - the unit can easily be configured to show AU dollars instead.

: How is the Elite model different to the efergy e2
A: The e2
can be connected to a PC and the usage data exported to a spreadsheet or analysed using the included eLink software.
The efergy must be installed by a licensed electrician.
The Elite cleverly measures electricity use and display this remotely. The device consists of 3 components:
- A sensor clamp to go over your live feed wire (up to 12mm thick) at your electricity meter box (In rare case that your cable is thicker than 12mm you will need the optional XL size sensor)
- A mains powered Din Rail transmitter to connect to the clamp
- A battery powered portable wireless receiver display
Transmission Time: 6s. 12s. or 18s.
Transmission Range: 40m
Voltage Range (in the sensor): 110V-400V
Measuring Current: 50mA-95A
The LED backlight will be activated from 18:00Hrs to 6:00Hrs.
Carbon ratio: 0.50 kg. CO2 / kWh
Stores data for 7 days, 4 weeks & 24 months.
Please note, 3x AAA batteries are required for the monitor (the display unit) - these are not included.

Measuring electricity 'exporting' back into the grid:
This product is attached to your main electricity cable and measures
the electricity flowing through it.
It cannot determine the direction
of the electricity (Whether it is going back to the grid or importing
into your premises).
It is therefore not designed to provide accurate
readings if you are sending power back to the grid on the same line
that you import electricity.
