The Efergy Elite is an advanced wireless electricity monitor. Once attached to your conventional electricity meter via a wireless sensor/transmitter, you can then conveniently view (and save) your real-time energy usage on the hand-held efergy wireless display unit.
With an optional efergy enagage internet hub (sold separately) you can also view your energy usage remotely via an internet connected PC or via your iPhone or Google Android enabled device.
Research has proved that knowing how much electricity you use and being aware of real time changes will help consumers manage their energy usage and cost.
For example using the efergy you can instantly see the impact of turning a light on, or turning the television on/off.
It has an innovative memory function that allows you to see how much you have used today, yesterday, in the last week and month.
In addition the monitor displays your daily average so you can see when you are using more electricity than normal and see how your average reduces as you change the way you do things.
- Instant feedback
- Memory function
- Daily, weekly or monthly data
- Average data
The key advantage of the Efergy monitors over other electricity monitors is the addition of an in-depth memory function. This enables the user to see exactly how much electricity is being used per day, per week, and per month.
Memory makes it far easier to compare electricity usage on a day by day, week by week, and month by month basis which is particularly useful if you are interested in reducing consumption.
The energy saving toolkit:
Together with the monitor unit, sensor, and wireless transmitter comes an energy saving booklet and guide which will take you through HOW to save energy and what how these relate to your energy use.
Please note, the product pictures show the currency in British Pounds - the unit can easily be configured to show AU dollars instead.
If you are measuring 3 phase power (generally installed in commercial properties), you will require an extra 2 sensors.
Requires 6x AA batteries - we recommend the use of rechargeable batteries.
FAQ: How is the Elite model different to the efergy e.one?
A: The elite has a larger display & can handle 2 tariffs (peak & off peak). The e.one can handle 1 tariff.
FAQ: How is the Elite model different to the efergy e2?
A: The e2 can be connected to a PC and the usage data exported to a spreadsheet or analysed using the included eLink software.
The efergy must be installed by a licensed electrician.
The Elite cleverly measures electricity use and display this remotely. The device consists of 3 components:
- A clamp to go over your live feed wire (up to 12mm thick) at your electricity meter box (In rare case that your cable is thicker than 12mm you will need the optional XL size sensor)
- A battery powered wireless transmitter (up to 50m open-air) to connect to the clamp
- A battery powered portable wireless receiver display

How far does the device transmit?
Transmitters work up to around 40 meters within the home. The 433MHz range is well suited for in home use. This can cover three floors, and also well suited to buildings where meters are outside the main building.
Please note, batteries required (not included):
3x AA batteries are required for the transmitter
3x AA batteries are required for the Efergy meter
(We recommend the use of rechargeable batteries)
Measuring electricity 'exporting' back into the grid:
This product is attached to your main electricity cable and measures
the electricity flowing through it.
It cannot determine the direction
of the electricity (Whether it is going back to the grid or importing
into your premises).
It is therefore not designed to provide accurate
readings if you are sending power back to the grid on the same line
that you import electricity.
