Ratings and Reviews
Good enough for now
So the app as a whole works. It displays a fair amount of information; however, it could be much better. I like that you can specify a 2nd factor power option (a prompt to verify power on/off toggle).
I took off a star because you have to enter individual information for every device (pKwh cost, time zone, etc) and this was truly annoying. Also annoying was there wasn’t a way to easily view total usage of all monitored plugs or devices. I had to export to CSV
Total energy usage as a graph
An easier way to change between device views
A “memory” of what view I prefer (always defaults to per second usage)
Set up multiple/all devices with same setting (energy cost, time zone, etc)
I hope when I get the Vue it isn’t the same way as the individual plugs. That would be a bummer.
Good App, hardware and support!
App keeps getting better! Last update included Amps unit! Hardware is best value on the market right now. My power panel is a long way from my router so the hardware would not stay connected. After working with Marty in customer support, it was determined that my Wi-Fi was too weak at that location. I independently verified this diagnosis with WiFi SweetSpot app and worked to upgrade my network. I tried a couple of Wi-Fi repeater/extenders but they still caused connectivity issues. I resolved all connectivity issues when adding Xfinity XFi Pods (mesh). Mesh is the way to go. Solved connectivity issues I had with a remote Ring doorbell also.
I use two of the eight current sensors to monitor the power supplied by my 16 Kw Generac whole house standby generator. Since it auto starts, when we are not home, I can now see when and how long the generator ran. It would be useful if emporia could ID generator sensors, send an alert when power supply transfers to the generator and allow an alternative energy cost (based on natural gas cost & generator efficiency) when the generator runs.
I look forward to future improvements!
App full of bugs
I have solar so the app is supposed to deduct the solar production from the main balance in the main screen and its supposed to show solar production reducing the main graph usage, instead it adds the solar production to the balance and does not offset usage in the main graph. This is totally wrong.
I have spent hours resetting the app, uninstalling the app and re-installing it, adjusting settings, emailing support and I am getting no-where.
There are other things wrong also, the most sloppy problem I observed is missing navigation options in certain app settings screens where the user has no choice but to kill the app and restart it to get back to the home screen. I really hate sloppy app development work like this.
The app store is littered with sloppy work like this.
You can tell this app author does not have a full time developer working on this app, most likely they just outsource this work in bids to the cheapest developers they can find. Good app authors have one developer, always the same developer focused on one app, keeping all the work consistent.
Not impressed at all with this product.
To be fair the hardware (amp clamps etc.) seems to work reliably, so far no complaints with the hardware however hardware these days is only as good as the accompanying software. For this reason I would not purchase this product until this company makes vast improvements to their app.
