Data measured by all Emporia devices are available as CSV Exports if needing to work with the data outside of the Emporia Energy app. Those CSV downloads are available on-demand from within the app (steps available below). Once exported, a link will be sent to the email address connected to the Emporia account with a link to download the exported data. That link will download a .zip folder containing multiple files with each file corresponding to a different time resolution (seconds, mins, hours) of data.
How to Export?
- Select Menu (☰) in top left corner
- Select Export Raw Data to CSV under Settings
- Select the device you'd like to retrieve CSV data for, enter the desired date range, and select Export Data
- You will receive an email link (to your Emporia Account address) that will allow you to download a zip file to your computer that contains each of the following files for the time period you specified:
- 1SEC (3 hours of 1 second data)
- 1MIN (up to 7 days of 1 minute data)
- 15MIN (Complete 15 minute data)
- 1H (Complete hourly data)
- 1DAY (Complete daily data)

What does an Export File look like?
Here's a brief overview of what an example Gen 2 CSV Export will look like.
Exports will provide kW data for the seconds, minutes and 15-min data. Exports will provide kWh (energy) in the hour resolution and higher.
Note for Gen 2 (and Gen 1) related exports: The most common question about the files themselves is having multiple columns after the Date/Time column labeled with "_1", "_2" and/or "_3" at the end of the column name. Those represent each of the "mains" sensors attached to the device (in ports A, B and/or C) and you should have a column for each 200A CT sensor attached to your mains.
