How does it work?

PhiSaver monitors up to 14 sub-circuits and provides highly reliable operation without batteries or maintenance.

A mobile-phone-sized data collector is installed in your switchboard, and connects via WiFi.

Individual circuits (up to 14) are monitored continuously. The data is stored in the cloud for viewing.

How is it different?

Simple wireless energy monitors only monitor the whole-of-building usage and, being battery powered, are notoriously unreliable. In-built solar panel systems monitor only solar and whole-of-building usage.

What savings are available?

  • Identify faulty equipment (10-30% savings): poorly configured hot water systems, high standby load air-conditioners, over-running pool and hot water pumps.
  • Identify energy hungry appliances (0% – 20% savings): older fridges and outside lights can be economically replaced.
  • Awareness (5% – 20%): a quick glance at your monitor before leaving the building, or going on holidays can prevent inadvertent wastage.
  • Maximise solar use (0% – 30%): track your solar production and configure equipment to run when you have surplus energy.

FAQs

Where do you service?

Systems are available for supply and install in the Brisbane, Australia area. Other national locations can be serviced with the onsite help of a local electrician.

What does it include?

  • Hardware including hardware unit, power supplies, cabling, current transformers
  • Installation including switchboard sensors installation and configuration
  • Software including configuration of your devices
  • User training

Is my building suitable?

Most, but not all electrical boards are suitable. We’ll check that you:

  • Have a safe electrical board
  • Have a powerpoint nearby
  • Have WiFi available at the switchboard

We can arrange an electrician to rectify any issues.

Is my home or business suitable?

  • Typical clients include small-medium business, schools, gyms, larger homes, clubs and like.
  • Factories and light-industry are also suitable.
  • Very small tenancies in multi-storey offices are typically unsuited, as their air-conditioning is the major consumer and separately metered.
  • Large consumers are suitable but we will partner with another firm to deliver.
