SMART Solar Power IFTTT Home Automation

TP-Link Smart Wifi Plug
So far we have tested IFTTT.COM and our SMART Solar Power dashboard with a few smart wi-fi plugs. Being able to trigger these devices when such events as excess solar are present.

Meaning your excess solar is now going to an appliance in the home, instead of back to the grid for little financial return.

What any smart wi-fi plug or smart device needs to have created within IFTTT, is the ability for it to be turned on / off. This turning on / off will then be controlled by the energy monitoring levels within our SMART Solar Power dashboard.

Smart wi-fi plugs tested so far are:

  • WeMo
  • TP-Link
  • D-Link

We are interested in hearing from a small select group of 'energy monitoring homes', to work with us in applying the polish to our creation.

If you have one of our home energy monitoring solutions or are interested in jumping onboard, then we would love to hear from you.

Please email the office in the first case.

Connecting IFTTT To Efergy Energyhive Energy Monitoring

Yes this is now possible. We have been able to integrate the IFTTT.com creation and triggering of events, now into our SMART Solar Power dashboard.

Excitingly this means anyone with an Efergy / Energyhive online energy monitoring dashboard, has the ability to switch smart wi-fi plugs / smart devices on / off based on such values as:

  • Solar power generation
  • Excess solar power
  • Total power consumption
  • Temperature
  • Light
  • Movement of sensor

This certainly is a great opportunity for those SMART energy monitoring homeowners, to now go one step further and trim more fat off electricity costs, or simply to get the best from their solar power investment.

For some of you it may be a smart enough idea, to make your home  super efficient.

Add Import Export Data To Your Efergy Engage Hub

Efergy Engage Hub Solo
We are offering you this service when you are short of time or technical expertise.

Using our in-depth knowledge we will transfer your data off your Efergy Engage Energy Monitoring Dashboard and onto PVOutput.org

Anyone with a net metered solar system anywhere, really needs import / export data in real-time. Why?  Because without it you are not maximising your solar investment.

Whether you are being paid less or more for your exported power, than imported power costs, you really do need to know when-to-use-it or when-not-to-use-it.

With little financial return you use it instead of importing power. Therefore more of your generated power is worth more financially.

With a bigger financial return than imported power, obviously you want to know when not to use the solar power. As you make more by letting it export.

Simple really! So why not let us transfer your data off your Efergy Engage dashboard, to get the data you need to start saving?

As a PVOutput user some of the features you can enjoy are:


  • Import / Export data
  • Total consumption and of course solar powe
  • Total power consumption from more than one source
  • Total solar power from one or more inverters
  • Live data in 5 minute increments
  • Data graphed and tabulated
  • Flat, tiered / block and Time Of Use tariff support


We are only charging you a one off fee for this data transfer service. See the  SERVICES page on our website for more information.

You will also need to make a small annual donation to PVOutput, to unlock some of the services and features we need to use, to transfer your data.

So why not call us today on 02 8064 3992 or drop us an email.

Current Cost Energy Monitor Solar Net Upgrade

Current Cost ENVI/R
For this upgrade to work your situation is you have a Current Cost ENVI/R Energy Monitor. Importantly it was connected with a gross feed-in-tariff, which has recently been switched to a net feed-in-tariff.

In Australia most Government funded gross feed-in-tariff schemes, started between 2009 / 2011. NSW Solar Bonus Scheme ran from 2010 to 2016 @ 60 / 20 cents per kW exported back to the grid.

Like other States in Australia, NSW has now switched to a net feed-in-tariff, both for existing and new installations since December 2016. Most solar powered homes in NSW, should have had the electricity meter reconfigured, to net from gross by now.

So what does that mean for your Current Cost ENVI/R Energy Monitoring System?

Well you may be ignoring it, as you will have realised the information does not make sense anymore, since switching to a net meter. Especially if you still have the current clamps in the same place, as the original gross metered install!

So how do you fix the issue and get accurate / meaningful data once again?


  • Well you need to upgrade to an online energy monitoring dashboard. Where you will use the existing hardware, to get the correct information you need. The dashboard and mobile apps will easily show you:



Generated Power
Total Consumption
Imported Power
Exported Power


  • You need to re-site the consumption current clamps in the power box

Two easy steps that will bring back life to your Current Cost Energy Monitoring System. Importantly two steps that will start saving you far more off the electricity bill, than you are now!

The HUB we offer with Free Energy Monitoring Dashboard, has plenty of mobile applications and also supports data being transferred to PVOutput. Which supports all electricity tariffs and offers email alerts.

Where you are being paid little for your unused solar power, it will really pay to know when you should be using it.

The real-time Current Cost Energy Monitoring Upgrade, will show you when to act and start saving!

Example Scenario :


  • Your exporting 7 kW per day of solar power back to the grid @ 6 cents. Worth ONLY $38 per quarterly bill :(
  • Why not use it instead? @ 30 cents import offset, that is $191 per quarterly bill :)
  • Meaning your $612 better off per year! :)


You Cannot Ignore A Possible $612 Saving!


It's not rocket science to know your losing money! By not knowing when to act! Get the data you need now, to maximise your solar power investment!

Convert your Current Cost Energy Monitoring System NOW and start saving!
