TED5000 - The Energy Detective

TED5000 v1.0.2

Download plugin here: https://vulture.lagaros.com/wiki/projects/homeautomation/Home_Automation.html

TED is an in-home electricity monitor that provides real-time data in an easy-to-understand manner. TED permanently installs in your breaker panel and gives you instant feedback on your electricity usage.

Plugin configuration is as simple as selecting a polling interval. The default is 30 seconds. I have mine set at 5 seconds and it works well. Configuration for each TED device requires an IP address and the number of active MTUs. The following states are captured (total and for each MTU):
  • PowerNow - Power consumption in kw at last poll
  • PowerHour - Power consumption in kw over the last hour
  • PowerTDY - Power consumption in kw for the day
  • PowerMTD - Power consumption in kw for the month
  • PowerProj - Power consumption in kw projected for current billing period
  • PeakTDY - Peak consumption in kw for current day
  • PeakMTD - Peak consumption in kw for current month
  • CostNow - Cost per hour based on current power consumption
  • CostHour - Cost for the past hour of power consumption
  • CostTDY - Cost for the current day
  • CostMTD - Cost for the current month
  • CostProj - Cost projection for current billing period
  • CostAvg - Average daily spending
  • VoltageNow - Current utility voltage reading
  • VoltageLow - Low voltage reading for current day
  • VoltageHigh - High voltage reading for current day
  • VoltageLowMTD - Low voltage reading for current month
  • VoltageHighMTD - High voltage reading for current month

TED v2.0.0 Update

v2.0.0 – 2016-12-18
  • Re-factoring for efficiency. Current version supports Indigo 7+.
  • First crack at support for TED 6000/Pro.

I do not have a TED Pro so have not been able to test. For those that do have one (also labeled as TED6000), let me know of any difficulties. Also note that the plugin will only work with Indigo 7. Please do not update if you are on version 6 or below.
