With Engage kit you can access your energy consumption in a way you never experienced before. Using your computer, tablet or smartphone you can see how much energy and money you are using at any given time, in real-time, even when you are not at home.
There are two main elements that make the Engage Home:
1. Engage Hub:
It is the device that enables you to monitor energy and for the data to be sent to the internet.
2. Engage Web Portal and Apps (http://engage.efergy.com):
It gives you access to instant and historical data in a way you can easily understand and engage with.
It will take you 2 minutes to install and register your account on the portal.
It is completely free to use. THERE ARE NO SERVICE FEES.
The information is updated instantly, which means you can act inmediatly, helping you to be more energy efficient and save money on your electricity bill. The Engage Web Portal displays the information in energy units (Watts and kWh), cost (£) and carbon emissions (kg. of CO2). The Portal also enables you to set a monthly budget and to track this accordingly, giving you an indication of what the cost is going to be by the end of the month.
You can open the Android or iPhone App and walk around the home switching appliances on and off to see how much energy particular devices are using. When you are away on holidays, at work or on the move and you want to know how much energy your home is using at that time or in the past, you simply access the portal. The Web Portal and App include multiple features that will help you save on your electricity bill.
The Engage system is scalable and you can add more submetering kits to monitor simultaneously a group of electricity circuits or to monitor micro-generation, if you have solar panels installed.
The Engage Online Monitoring System is complimentary to our Wireless Electricity Monitors, and vice-versa. While the Electricity Monitors tell you what is happening in the home, while you are at home, as they instantly display your energy information in front of you, with the Engage Hub Kit you can access to those information anytime from anywhere.
Both Engage kit and Wireless Electricity Monitors complement each other perfectly.
The Engage System can be used to monitor both home consumption and gross micro-generation from solar panels. To monitor Solar generation you need to purchase an additional Submetering kit (STXtra Kit). Please note the current system does not work for Net-Metering installations.
The Engage System is particularly useful for businesses. It allows you to check quickly multiple locations remotely and analyse additional electricity circuits within your building. Many shop owners, small offices and companies managing multiple properties use this product to monitor energy usage.
If your building has a 3-Phase electricity system, you simply need to add two additional CT sensors. You can also get bigger sensors, up to 120A each, named XL CT Sensors if your cables require bigger capacity CT sensors.

Keep developing the product, they are good but could be better!
You have been doing a good job so far. Keep it a free service and you'll continue to have success. I live in Coimbra, Portugal, home of ISA, the company that produces Cloogy (I assume you know this competitor) and they charge a monthly amount and also its products are very expensive, compared to Efergy, I much prefer Efergy.
I am a disabled father of 4 and i use my system on a daily basis to monitor usage and that allows me to detect appliances that are left on. I would also be very interested in any trials or beta testing you may offer. I worked in the oil field as electronics tech/electrician
I think the Efergy platform is a great tool for working out where efficiencies can be made in the household, as well as which appliances are using the most power and when.
It would also be nice to be able to monitor multiple sites through one dash board.
Example House and Holiday home or perhaps in my case I have a few clients where I have fitted the Hub Kits to allow me to assess electrical demands so as to offer advice regarding suitability of supply etc for possible expansion of premises. To date i have had to setup a separate account for each.
One account with a dashboard that can be switched to different sits would be a great help.
I've been using this for about two months and overall it seems to be a solid product. It does seem to read a bit less than my electric meter. I tried adjusting the voltage from 120 to 110 but it didn't really help. I contacted support through email and they were not terribly helpful.
Overall for the price it is worth it and does what it says. I do wish it was more expandable so I could add clamps onto individual breakers but it seems that option is only available for residents on the EU.
I just received the hub and I'm impressed at the ease of installation and display graphics on the app.
