How It Works
Our main products, the Wattwatchers Auditor series of real-time data energy management meters, are designed to measure and log Class 1 accurate, highly granular energy flow data and transmit it to the internet in 5 second and 5 minute data packages.
Install and Connect
This is a snap-shot for getting the Wattwatchers system installed and working. Instruction and guide materials are made available with device packs (see below).
The site or sites must be scoped to identify number, type and size (amperage and wire width) of circuits to be covered; test communications strength (e.g. WiFi signal if relevant) and ease of access or otherwise to the internet (e.g. IT restrictions, firewall); and assess any other factors that could hamper or assist installation (e.g. old, degraded power board with no obvious installation space, or a new board with space already available on the DIN-rail).
2. Electrical installation
Allow about 20-30 minutes per device for straightforward installations. Must be carried out by a qualified electrician who should read installation manuals and guide materials thoroughly before proceeding. Same electrical installation process for 3G and WiFi, with different wiring requirements for single-phase versus 3-phase circuits (see guide and ready-made-leads provided in packs).
3. Communications configuration
3G is simply a matter of powering up the device to activate the SIM and begin data transmission. WiFi requires additional configuration to pair device with a wireless router.
4. Enrollment into software service
This depends on the user interface selected and often will be managed via one of our SaaS Partners.
5. Operate and maintain system
Managed via the Wattwatchers fleet management backend and our SaaS Partners.
