Hello, first post here. I want to monitor (log, chart etc.) the power consumption of 5 appliances (indoor A/C condensers). There are power sockets and network ports close by to all of them
I am hoping to use an emonPi and an emonTx. I would connect 4x clip-on current sensors to the Tx, and 1x clip-on current sensor to the emonPi, to allow me to monitor all 5.
Is there a way that the emonTx can connect to the emonPi “wired” - since they will be sitting next to each other I figure this would save me messing around with wireless reliability
Is this the right approach for a 5-appliance setup, or should I be looking at 2 emonTx’s?
