Installation Guide

For comprehensive step-by-step instructions on installing your Vue: Gen 3 Home Energy Monitoring Device, please refer to our official installation guides at Emporia Energy Installation Guides.

Common Questions About Installation

1. What If My Electrical Panel Lacks Space?

Solution: The Vue: Gen 3 is designed with flexibility in mind. It does not require mounting inside the electrical panel/consumer unit. The most crucial requirement is to protect the Vue: Gen 3 from rain and other environmental elements, as it is not rated for outdoor use. For indoor installations, you may place the Vue: Gen 3 in any suitable location that meets these criteria. For installations involving an outdoor panel, the Vue: Gen 3 should be housed in a separate, weatherproof enclosure. Ensure the sensors and wire harness are securely routed through a conduit into one of the panel's knockouts, safeguarding the device and maintaining a neat installation.

2. How Can I Install the Antenna If My Panel Has No Knockouts?

Solution: Effective Wi-Fi connectivity is essential for your Vue: Gen 3, requiring the antenna to be located outside the electrical panel. If your panel lacks knockouts and is flush-mounted within a wall, you can discreetly place the antenna behind the drywall. This method facilitates a strong Wi-Fi connection without compromising the aesthetics or integrity of your installation environment.
