At Emporia Energy, our mission is to empower you with the tools and knowledge to effectively manage and monitor your home's energy usage. With the release of the Vue: Gen 3 home energy monitor, we've taken another step towards achieving that goal. Understanding the complexity and diversity of home electrical systems, the Vue: Gen 3 is designed with the flexibility to accommodate your specific monitoring needs, regardless of the size or complexity of your system.

Whether your home features multiple electrical panels, or you're looking to monitor more than 16 circuits within a single panel, the Vue: Gen 3 offers a scalable solution. By installing multiple Vue: Gen 3 units, you can ensure comprehensive coverage of your entire electrical system. This flexibility means you can tailor the system to meet your unique requirements, ensuring no aspect of your energy usage goes unnoticed.

Introducing Nesting for Streamlined Energy Management

To enhance the usability and efficiency of monitoring multiple devices, we've introduced a feature known as "Nesting." This feature allows for the organization of multiple Vue: Gen 3 devices (or other compatible devices) within the Emporia app for a consolidated view of your system's energy usage. It's important to note that the Nesting functionality is specifically designed to work with devices monitoring the same hierarchy of your electrical system, meaning it effectively manages upstream and downstream circuits but not circuits or panels in parallel.

Nesting proves especially beneficial in various scenarios:

  • Managing main/sub-panel relationships with devices in each location.

  • Capturing data from more than 16 circuits in a shared panel.

  • Integrating Smart Plugs or EV Chargers that measure usage alongside a Vue: Gen 2 or Vue: Gen 3 monitor.

  • Combining a Vue: Gen 2 or Vue: Gen 3 device with a Utility Connect for detailed circuit-level monitoring alongside system mains.

Can a Vue: Gen 3 be nested above/under a Vue: Gen 2?

Yes, nesting works across monitor generations and device types.

Easy Installation and Configuration

Installing multiple Vue: Gen 3 devices and configuring the nesting feature is straightforward. Our installation guides provide step-by-step instructions to get your devices up and running seamlessly. Once installed, the Emporia app simplifies the process of nesting devices, allowing you to select and organize your devices with just a few taps.

Future Improvements: Device Grouping

Looking ahead, we're excited to announce the upcoming launch of a new feature: "Device Grouping." This enhancement will extend the flexibility of our system by enabling the grouping of devices monitoring circuits or panels in parallel, a capability beyond the current nesting functionality's focus on hierarchical (upstream/downstream) system relationships. Device Grouping will provide an even more comprehensive and versatile approach to energy monitoring, accommodating a wider variety of electrical system configurations and user needs.

Your Feedback Matters

As we continue to develop and refine our knowledge base, your feedback is invaluable to us. Should you have suggestions for improvement or require further clarification on any topic, we encourage you to reach out to our Customer Support team. We're here to assist and ensure you have all the information you need to manage your energy more effectively.

Empower your energy management with the flexibility and insight offered by the Vue: Gen 3. With upcoming features like Device Grouping, Emporia Energy is committed to providing solutions that meet the evolving needs of our users, ensuring comprehensive monitoring and management of your electrical system tailored precisely to your needs.
