Aeon HomeEnergyMonitor First Edition

If you have version 3.58 or later of the HEM firmware (unrelated to Vera's firmware), it supports the ability to report in real-time whenever there is a change in the energy consumption.  It generates a report for Vera whenever there is a change.

For versions 3.57 and lower, the only way to get real time energy reporting was to have the HEM send Vera reports constantly, whether or not there was a change.  This required powering the HEM with USB power.  So we recommend using the USB port on the HEM to upgrade to firmware 3.58 or newer, as per the instructions on aeon-labs.com

There have been reported issues with HEM firmware less than 3.61. The latest that we know about is 3.67 and you can download it below. Please make sure to choose the right frequency for your own device.

US version: HEM367

AU version - 200 A: HEM367

EU version - 60 A :  HEM367

EU version - 100 A: HEM367

EU version - 200 A: HEM367

Inclusion

When including the HEM to the Vera unit you should have the HEM powered with the USB AC adapter.

Note

You need to have it plugged in through the USB AC adapter for it to report the KWH accurately, because when it is battery operated it sleeps most of the time and it cannot accurately track KWH. 

Aeotec HomeEnergyMonitor 2nd edition

The Aeotec Home Energy Monitor can be found in multiple variations on the market with one, two or three measuring clamps. It's always a good practice to update the software to the latest version by using the tool from the manuafcturers support page.

Configuring the Aeotec HEM 2nd edition

Once the HEM will be paired with your controller it will display either two, three or four devices on the Vera interface. One will be the master device, and one child device for each clamp connected to the HEM. Below we'll check the configuration settings for the two and three clamp versions of the Aeotec HEM.

The configuration settings are done on the configuration panel of the parent device under the Device Options page. Here you'll need to adjust the following configuration parameters :

  • for the two clamp edition:

Parameter 101 [4 byte dec]: 6927 (report kwh and watt on clamp 1 2 and total readings)

Parameter 111 [4 byte dec]: 240 (report every 240 seconds)

Parameter 102 and 103 [4 byte dec] set to 0

If any of the parameters are missing you can add them by pressing "Add configuration settings" button.

  • for the three clamp edition:

Parameter 101 [4 byte dec]: 16143 (3 clamps to report kwh and watt)

Parameter 111 [4 byte dec]: 240 (report every 240 seconds)

Parameter 102 and 103 [4 byte dec] set to 0

If some of the parameters are missing one can add them by pressing "Add configuration settings" button.
