- Take your Homebase and look at the ports on the back side.
- Plug the Homebase into electricity via the middle port.
- Connect the ethernet cable to the right port. Internet must have the support of DHCP. Make sure that the LEDs are flashing.
- Choose one of the 30 channels by listing with the front buttons below the display. Then switch the Homebase into pairing mode by long press of both buttons together. In pairing mode, the display will turn into violet colour and will remain in this mode for 1 minute.
- Take the transmitter and push the embedded button on the top for 2 seconds. The transmitter should pair with the Homebase.
- For next 60 seconds, you can choose the value of voltage by pushing the same button on the transmitter. Default value is set to 230V as you can see on display of the Homebase.
- Attach the current clamps on the phases that you want to monitor in your electric box. Clamps must fully embrace the cable.
- Connect the current clamps with the bottom ports on the Transmitter.
- Go to http://energomonitor.com/setup and create your account. You can find a required serial number of the device on the bottom side of the Homebase.
How accurate is Powersense monitoring?
- Powersense monitoring is not 100% accurate, the approximate deviation is around 10-15%. It is the exchange for easy installation.
- The reason is that Powersense measures the current only. Voltage is set as a constant and power factor is not considered at all. That means especially capacity and induction loads ( are factors which cause inaccuracies to Powersense measuring.
Is there anything I can do to improve the accuracy?
- Be sure you set the correct voltage during the pairing process (see point no. 6 at the installation).
- Set the correction in the application. For Powersense sensors, there is advance settings possibility to do this. Check the consumption on the electricity meter and the Homebase (or in the app). If the power shown on the display of the Homebase will be incorrect for example for constant 1,73 (if you will set the Powersense transmitter for 230V), in the application, you can make a correction in the advanced settings (the correction for the sum would be /1.73), so the numbers in the app would be correct, only on the Homebase's display the data would be incorrect.
