The EAGLE-200 Energy Access Gateway gives you direct access to your energy information. It connects wirelessly to the Zigbee radio in the utility smart meter, collects your data in real-time, and streams that data to your smart phone or tablet. All you need is a web browser, and you can log in to our web portal to get your up-to-the-minute electricity consumption anywhere you have internet access. The EAGLE-200 can be self-installed in minutes, and does not require an electrician or a utility visit.

The local web access portal is not supported on the Eagle-200, as it was on the Eagle. So this means the ONLY way to use the Eagle-200 is to register it thru the Rainforest cloud service. For me, as a California PG&E customer, the RainForest cloud service is basically a useless feature, as PG&E already provides hourly summary of your home power consumption for free thru their website. Yeah you can get realtime power thru the Eagle-200, so I give them 1/2 star for that capability.
Also not supported on the Eagle-200 is the Uploader API so that a local home computer can query the device directly and a lot of useful logged power status at 5min intervals. My local home automation system made use of this capability that is/was supported in the existing (now no longer sold) Eagle.
So if you want a crippled version of the Rainforest Eagle and are happy with only using the Rainforest Cloud site to view the data then the Eagle-200 is made for you. But if you are a home 'power user' it is a step backwards, and not recommended.
My utility has an online application for registering the product which once submitted was setup within four hours so the Eagle-200 could access my otherwise secure Smart Meter. Then it was only a matter of registering my Eagle-200 with Rainforest Automation so that I could start watching my load profile from any Internet connected device such as a PC, Tablet or even a smart phone - no special application needs to be downloaded.
Note: I have an old Samsung Tabled that I mounted on my wall next to the thermostat; so now can check my load profile over the Internet extremely easy without much hassle.
- very rudimentary cloud access, worst than SDGE's own website
- no local data access at all
- "real time" actually means about 20 second delay, depending on your network speed
Very disappointed by this product, which seems to be still in development stage. The attached picture is the only thing shows if you try to access it locally.
***This is how I get "local access" eventually. I went to rainforest cloud website to add a new upload destination, point to "192.168.2.33", which is my server ip address in LAN. Then on my server I run a small program to listen to the port I set. The program did receive XML packets every several seconds, that are all I needed.
My rating won't change because this is not a finished product obviously.
ISSUE: This device repeatedly disconnects from the cloud (not from Zigbee) near midnight on random days and does not and will not reconnect automatically on it's own. You have to sit there and constantly watch the lights and the only way to fix is you gotta pull the power cord like it's 1995. Ridiculous. Meanwhile, there is no warning when this happens. Rainforestcloud.com = worthless and does not even notify you or have the option. So if you like babysitting electronics, this
