Aeon Labs Home Energy Monitor v1 Install Guide
« on: January 09, 2015, 12:13:25 pm »
I just purchased this from Amazon for $30 and I thought I would share my install documentation to save others from the time and trouble I had getting this to work with my VeraLite.

l8nighter:

When you hooked the HEM to your machine via usb cable, what happened?  Did it just sit there with a blinking red light?

I'm on a linux box and from what I can see when plugging it in, it doesn't even trigger a usb event.  Does this sound right?

Thanks,
BB

When I plugged mine in, I would get a USB event and the red led on the HEM would blink.

After going on a mission to beg/borrow/steal a windows machine to try this again, I was able to confirm that neither the ARM socs nor macbooks I have will register a USB event when plugging this thing in.  Lesson learned.  :/

It's working now though, so thanks! :)

Hello, I just picked one of these HEM's up on Amazon the other day and trying to configure it to work with the Vera and having issues. I did the firmware update and then paired it to Vera, it comes up with 3 Generic IO devices. I have unpaired/repaired the HEM about 1/2 dozen times now with the same results, any ideas on how to resolve this issue?

Hi,

unpair again. remove batteries from  HEM and restart Vera. Replace batteries and also power HEM through provided power cable. Pair again and leave  it sometime. See if it solves the problem.

Thanks
Suresh

No batteries in HEM the entire time been using included usb power supply. I am letting it sit for awhile to see if that helps

I downgraded the firmware after seeing another post with similar issues and that didn't work either. Let it sit over night right next to the vera with no luck l.

If you have a backup of vera before adding HEM to your system. Restore to that date and restart vera. Remove batteries and upgrade to version 6.34. Insert batteries and also connect to power and pair it again see how it goes.

Thanks for the install guide.  I'm having an issue where one or both clamps stop updating after less than one day (Vera 3 UI5, Aeon HEM Gen 1 firmware v3.67).  I only power it via USB since it seemed to freeze even more often with batteries (and made it harder to power cycle) and have only used reporting intervals of 30 or 60 sec.  Sometimes Configure Now can get it working again but usually I need to just power cycle it.  Has anyone seen this and found a fix?  Thanks
