Our platform has now been live since early spring of 2019. And we have received LOTS of positive feedback. Thank You! We are always prepared to receive more words of support — and ideas — from our users. So please keep the Vue testimonials coming.

For now, we have assembled a sample of the Vue testimonials we have received to date.

“The “Tesla” of fuse panel energy monitors. I received mine today and it came with everything you needed for an easy install. They thought of everything in the design even a 12 gauge jumper. I like the fact you can mount entirely inside fuse panel or not as AC adapter can accommodate a 1/2″ knockout, and has knockout wifi antenna mount. Accuracy is spot on verified by my clamp on meters. Looking forward to the new upgrade expansion module for individual 120 (8) /240 (4) breakers. This unit has got it right with the individual breakers expansion because in the Sense’s case, trying to guess what a load is can be difficult and frustrating. The Emporia’s individual breaker takes the guess work out for 240V appliances. As I was exploring the help section a chat popped up and I was talking to the company in the US, I asked them to call me and they did, so customer support is as good as it gets. I’d like to see a Windows version app, but after all it just came out, give it time, and the cost is very reasonable.”

“Best Customer Service Ever!! I actually installed in my RV to track usage hooked to my house. It’s very easy! I love the fact it streams live data. It’s also accurate and I tested it. App is great! Best part is the service, I had some issues with my install being it an RV and all. The company responded fast and we figured it all out. Very responsive, and very helpful. Works great now! I can monitor the Power literally anywhere! Neat!”

“This amazing device gives me the information I need to reduce my electricity bill. The Emporia Vue is awesome! Until now, I never realized how many electronic items we had in our house that were in standby mode and were still consuming electricity. I have since unplugged many of those items I don’t use on a daily basis and it has made a significant difference in our total energy consumption. This combined with the awareness it creates changed our way of thinking about our use of electricity. We leave fluorescent lights on in the garage every day as our dog goes in and out. The Emporia Vue allowed us to see just how much those garage lights are costing us per hour and we have since changed those out to LED lights. You can see immediately the reduction in energy usage. I highly recommend this product to anyone looking to save on their energy costs.”

“Exactly as advertised, unbelievably easy to install! What really blew me away was the excellent customer support (I chatted before I ordered) and the incredibly easy setup with the app. It took about 30 seconds and worked flawlessly. I ordered it yesterday and it came today. Should have looked in my electrical box before ordering because there wasn’t enough room to get one of the current clamps around the main. No problemo! With a bit of fiddling I got it to work just fine.”

“It’s responsive and reads. This is similarly to Sense but will not break each item individually currently. They have something in the works very shortly. Tho I read alot that sense does have this ability it doesn’t always work and has alot of trouble with miss identification of each device. Features I wish they had currently would be push notifications. Tho when the finally push out the mutiple device feature looking at how it’s going to be done will be very very accurate compared to anything else on the market.”

“There is power [savings] in information. I have had the Emporia Vue in my home for over a month now. It has provided so much insight as to our energy consumption and what/when energy is burned needlessly. It has definitely influenced me and changed how we will consume energy in the future. This means cost savings for my home. There is power [savings] in this information! Thanks Emporia for helping me be a more informed consumer and alerting me to anomalies in my power consumption so I can fix issues proactively and change habits to save money.”

“I just wanted to say what a great job you guys are doing! I’ve purchased two Vue units so far for my family, and I’ve been telling everyone about them. Keep up the good work!”

“This product is amazing, it allows me to see where I can save on electric usage even when I am not home. I can’t wait to see my electric bill drop.”

“I bought this so I can monitor the electricity used by my tenants. We rent out an in-law suite above our garage, and the electrical to the unit is connected to our home’s main via a 100 amp service wire. Installing the power to the wireless transponder is incredibly easy if you know what you are doing, but I wouldn’t recommend someone unfamiliar with circuit breakers or electrical panels try to do it without a professional or someone that is familiar. They do sell a plug-in version which eliminates the need to hard-wire into the panel which is even easier. The clamp that fits around the wire of the circuit you want to track usage on is super easy to install and comes with a nice long cable. There is also an antenna included as well as an antenna extension so you can pick up a good wireless signal from your router. The App is easy to install and, though basic, provides real time and historical energy usage. I would highly recommend this product because it does exactly what it says it will do and it is easy to use.”

“This should be used in every home! After spending hours researching the intertubes for home energy monitors (HEM), I recently decided to pull the trigger on the Emporia Vue. I’ve also considered products from Sense, Efergy, Eyedro, Aeotec, Neurio, etc…, and there are many review sites that compare the attributes of these devices. So far I haven’t found a review site that also includes the Emporia Vue, perhaps because the Vue is fairly new to the market. Check out the articles (blogs) on the Emporia website if you’re even mildly curious about what home energy monitors are and why they are important for providing critical feedback about energy consumption habits. There are several studies that show installing one of these devices in your home can save around 5-15% of your energy consumption. What’s even more important is the valuable knowledge gained by using this device to better assess long-term savings through energy efficient appliances. These devices make excellent gifts to energy and environment-conscious family and friends, and they will perpetually reap the benefit of energy savings through responsible energy consumption.”

“Bringing Awareness to Electricity Use. I purchased the Emporia Vue last week and installed the product last weekend. I like most about the product is the awareness that it provides. My daughter walked around our house with the Emporia Energy App on and turned off appliances that consume electricity and observed in near real-time how turning off the device changes our total electricity usage. It has made me more conscious of how we use electricity. I think this device will pay for itself over the course of a year with the added awareness of how we use electricity.”

“Simple way to monitor home’s energy consumption. Has made me mindful of my carbon footprint and also can alert us to unexpected spikes in energy use so we will know if AC/furnace are wearing out beforehand. Love it! Great value for the price!”

“Good Afternoon!  I am using the app.  We went out for dinner the other night and I looked at it and something was drawing lots of power.  When we got home we discovered it was the hot tub.  It was cycling and trying to heat itself since the top was off.  That was a good lesson learned. I found that the periodic spikes is our sump pump.  The biggest take away is it makes you a better consumer. We average about 1100 watts and so now I know what to look for if it is any higher than that, excluding sump pump and hot tub.”

“I was at first skeptical about this product, but in just a few days I’ve already seen the benefits of it. I am more conscious about my energy usage as I watch my consumption and realize what I can do differently to conserve energy and save money. I’m really excited to refer this to my friends and family, so that we can use our savings for fine wine and nice dinners.”

“love this app and hardware. about time I have an easy to use energy monitor.”

“This is a terrific app.  It allows me to monitor our home energy usage, real time…and learn how to save money with that data.  I can clearly see the energy spikes when any of our major appliances are in use.  The bar-chart data lets me spot the trends over a normal day and week, and make changes.  In fact, I noticed a strange energy spike as soon as I set up the app that was occurring every 10 minutes.  It turns out, the coffee maker was the culprit and it was re-heating the water reserve every 10 minutes, during the day and night — so, I now keep the coffee maker turned off unless I am are using it.  I highly recommend this app.”

“I recently installed the new Emporia Vue Universal Connector to my breaker box, and I am extremely happy with the results and the product.  The entire installation process took me approximately 15 minutes from start to finish including the app download and registration.  The supplied instructions were very straight forward and allowed me, a self-confessed do-it-yourselfer, to easily install the hardware.  Upon opening the box, I was immediately impressed with the quality of the Emporia Vue.  It is well made and sturdy.  Immediately upon registering the device I started to receive data on my home energy usage and discovered ways to better my energy consumption to save money.  With the immediate energy consumption feedback via the app, I find myself looking for ways to conserve energy on a daily basis.  I have an android phone and the download of the app via the Google Play Store was quick and without issue.  I am very impressed with the Emporia Vue and would highly recommend it to my friends and family.”

“Fantastic view of your home energy usage. I love having an instantaneous view of my current home energy usage. I was surprised by the change in power consumption when watching the usage chart as I turned on and off items throughout my house. My kids were finally able to see the benefits of turning off lights when they leave the room. I am beginning to identify which appliances are running just by watching the charts. I have become addicted to checking my energy usage, even when I am not at home.”
