Great work

Postby kgingerich » Fri Sep 12, 2008 1:15 pm

I'm quick to post when i'm having problems with plugins but probably don't post enough when things work well.

Installed my TED model 1002 for 400 amp service yesterday. This morning installed the plugins and configured the TED and it's all working great. Bam! first try it works! So far no bugs either which for me is a rare thing. :)

Now to find the button that forces my 4 year old to turn off the lights when he leaves a room.

Great work!

kgingerich,

It is nice to see some positive posts along the way.

That's what keeps us rolling. :)

Add motion sensors to your kids room...then tie into something like an Elk security system and build rules to automatically turn off lights after x minutes of inactivity. When it comes to leaving lights on in the kitchen, my wife is like your 4 year old. :)

Wow. Hopefully your wife is not a forum member or you'll be sitting in the kids' room... facing the corner! :D

Ricks,

Thanks to MLServer, she doesn't leave lights on any more beyond 15 minutes. :)

I have to say, I got the TED1001 earlier this month and ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!

I had to RMA both my RDU (receiver) and MTU (measuremen/ttransmitter) initially (I think I just got unlucky) but the exchange process was painless. To be honest, I was only annoyed because I was so anxious to play with it :)

It's pretty amazing. Now I know my microwave takes 1 kW, dryer takes about 4.5 kW, PC takes about 0.8 kW... Really opens your eyes!

Like Mario mentioned in another thread, seeing "how low we can go" has become a bit of a game for me now. I'm considering how to turn my UPSes on/off as necessary now that I see how much power they're consuming too.

Thanks Brandon.

It is a phenomenal product. Just wish I had installed it sooner! Could have saved me a few bucks!

I'm still trying to shave expenses/usage - the game continues. :)
It's even encourage me to take a look at other things like gas usage. I've been insulating water pipes and checking all the various openings around the house that I didn't seem too concerned about in the past. I've found several areas where cold air was coming in. So in the end, hopefully my gas expenses will also be reduced. Now we just need a way to measure gas usage. :)

Due to the success of our last TED sale, we are offering it once more at a discounted price before Christmas:
