Will be ordering mine ASAP thanks for the info about remote access to the info via the web. Had not got that far in my research yet. I will be calling the guys in Calgary to get the scoop on the latest version.

Still thinking about how I will setup in my RV.

Would love to have an app on my phone and tablets so I could look at my home installation readout/data from anywhere. Perhaps one can by logging onto the site with the mobile device without having a specific app? Having the upload to the efergy site is neat.

PS: Thanks again for the additional info. Yes I figured one could operate with one clamp but if I wanted to measure from another source seperate, I would think I would need a seperate monitor and transmitter. Will be checking further.

Yes, I forgot to mention that in addition to using the website to view your personal power info,
Efergy has two apps for iOS. (Probably have android as well - didn't check). There is a iPhone version
and a iPad version. Both run on the iPad. As you would expect, the iPad specific one shows all the
graphs and read outs at the same time on the larger screen, while the app targeted towards the
iPhone switches from one view to the next because of the smaller screen size.

There is an Efergy division in the US as well, based in Florida. If you are in the US, make sure to switch
the website to the US view (upper right corner, I think) that way prices are displayed in US dollars,
and your units will be shipped from the US as well.

Thanks again for all the info. Looking forward to crosscheck my power supplier's invoices. The utility Co installed smart meters that enables them to indicate the usage per periods of peak and lower charge rates. I want to cross check this. All meters in my area are remotly monitored. I think that info is transmitted via data superimposed on the power lines. The technology is available for that. I suppose one could get a device that took the data the supplier was getting in real time if one could capture and view the meter output. Never really looked into this but I want my own independent device anyway.

You have been so helpful with all the updates and info. Good show.

While I like the look of the Efergy unit, it doesn't do quite what I want. In a 50 amp coach I want to be able to monitor each leg of the supply separately so I can see what effect moving electric heaters etc has on balancing the current load between the phases. (I do not have an EMS). I'm interested in current draw in amps and not in KWH or cost since I rarely pay for electric power when plugged in. Right now I'm using a clip on ammeter on the hot wires going in to the transfer switch, but I would rather have a panel mounted display inside the coach. Any suggestions other than two Efergy units with one clamp connected to each?

A Progressive EMS with remote would show amp draw on each leg AND give you the additional protection the EMS provides. I wouldn't be without one, too many things could get zapped in a bad pedestal or other issues, not uncommon in campgrounds that haven't upgraded to meet power needs of newer RVs.

I should have said that I have a TRC surge protector and a Surge Guard voltage regulator, both of which I hard wired myself. It looks like I should consider replacing the TRC unit with a Progressive EMS.

I don't think you can beat Progressive's support and lifetime warranty. They've talked me through diagnosing an issue and then sent the parts free.
