best solution to monitor and log power usage
mrhutchinsonmn last edited by
My wife and I have many conversations about how much power each device in our home consumes. I would like to take the guess work out of it and monitor/log each device plugged into outlets throughout our home, using Home Assistant as the controller. What hardware (and project, if available) would provide the best solution?

@mrhutchinsonmn For plug in items it would be easier and cheaper to get a power meter and use that to see how much power each item uses both when in use and standby. Then simply log the hours of use to determine overall power consumption.
I have something like this.....

Some Sonoff switching devices has got power metering.
Upload ESPeasy or Tasmota firmware and connect with HA....
