“Smart Meters" are designed primarily for the electric utility
industry so they can better manage the supply-and-demand of electricity.
TED is designed specifically for you, the customer; so that one can
better manage and lower the use and costs of electricity.
5000 series puts YOU in charge!
What is TED? –The Energy Detective (TED) is a home electricity
monitor that provides real-time feedback on electricity usage. TED is
accurate, affordable, and easy to understand.
What data is shown? – TED provides real-time kW/hr readings,
monthly bill projections, voltage, power factor and much more.
How does it work? – TED has two main components: One component,
MTU/CT set (Measuring Transmitting Unit/Current Transformer), which
installs in your breaker panel and transmits data over your existing powerline, while the other component, the Gateway, picks up these
signals and provides you with information.
How will I save? – TED provides real-time detailed information to
help you efficiently lower utility bills, reduce electricity waste, and
help save the environment.
The Gateway is the heart of the TED 5000 series. It stores 60
minutes of Second-data, 2 days of Minute-data, 90 days of Hourly-data, 24 months of Daily-data,
and 10 years of Monthly-data and provides the communications interface to your computer.
Your real-time and historical data can be viewed on your computer by the Gateway's
Ethernet connection and its embedded Footprints Firmware (Windows, Mac, and Linux compatible).
Additionally, when the Gateway is connected to your router with internet access you can view your data remotely or via various SmartPhone applications.
The TED 5000-G series allows you to monitor energy usage on your local computer
or remotely via an internet connection on a SmmartPhone application.
It does not include a local standalone display.
If you want to monitor your energy usage locally without using a computer you must purchase the TED 5000-C

This graphic is not to be considered installation instructions, but simply an
overview of the effort. Complete installation instructions with all safety concerns are included in your
purchase. Installation is very simple and quick. A technically-savvy homeowner, neighbor, friend or electrician
can install TED in 10-15 minutes.
The reason a technically-savvy person or an electrician should perform the
MTU/CT installation is that the cover of the electric panel is
removed. Serious injury/death could occur if you are not familiar with
electrical components and operation of the circuit breaker panel. It is a very
simple installation for an electrician.
Once the 'setup' routine has been completed, TED permanently stores
all the data that has been entered, even in the event of a power outage. It only needs to be re-programmed
if your electricity rates change.
Intuitive, simple setup directly from Computer
Compatible with Windows PC, Mac & Linux!
Rechargeable Battery - no batteries to change
Accurate to within 2%
User can customize displays
Adjustable sensitivity - user can adjust down to ONE WATT!
View real-time energy data remotely via Internet or mobile device
