By measuring the power and voltage up to thousands of times a second, it always knows exactly how much energy you're using. You'll get a complete picture of all readings in the free Smappee app on your smartphone, tablet or pc. The app shows you how much you consume and how much it costs you, in real-time and on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. It also shows you how much your always-on use accounts for, both in terms of kwh and pounds, euros or dollars. By identifying the main appliances in your home, Smappee helps you to find out all about your energy behavior. The itemized bill in the app splits up your total consumption by device. When you know exactly where your energy is going, you can start making smart choices. You'll find out which appliances should be replaced by a more energy-efficient version.

I've had Smappee for about 5 months now so I've got a good grasp on how to use it.
1.) I have saved money some money by monitoring real-time usage. Now I know how much electricity my apartment uses and how to curb it.
2.) Also, if the WiFi disconnects it will still monitor usage and uploads it once it connects back to Wi-Fi. This is huge because it's disconnects a lot!
Where do I start....
1.) Like I said before, It frequently disconnects from Wi-Fi.
2.) Forget about the appliance memory... They say it will have trouble detecting appliances that draw less than 400W but I have issues with all my appliances. For example I have 4 AC's. The inverter AC is rarely detected because its draws different wattage depending on the temperature of the room. Also, I have 2 AC's that are the same brand and model but it can't tell which room is turned on or off. It thinks the 2 AC's are the same, and when both are on, it thinks a completely different device is on.
3.) Reporting. This is HUGE!!! Smappee will tell you your last 30 days of electric usage but it won't give you what your electric bill should be during a certain date range, which is so dumb. If you want to know how much your electric bill will be you have to go to the Usage tab and calculate manually by getting totals from each of the days in your bill..... WTF!!!! Reporting is basically non-existent.
4.) I only emailed them once but the support is slow, dated, and not very helpful.
5.) They don't integrate with Alexa, Wink or Smartthings and IFTTT rarely works.
6.) The comfort plugs don't communicate both ways. What that means is that if you turn something on or off you will not know if that actions was actually completed. The workaround they have is to look at the energy usage and see if power consumption when up or down. :-\
All in all, I find the Smappee useful but not useful enough. I can't believe you can't get usage for a date range... That just doesn't make any sense to me and it doesn't seem like their development team cares very much to add these simple features either, so forget about advanced thing like integrating with your home automation devices. Wouldn't it be awesome if you could ask Alexa how much energy you are using, or how much energy you have used this week... Never going to happen for Smappee users!
Within 24 hours Smappee had learned enough about my electric usage to allow me to figure out what was going on. It showed that I had an extremely high ($300+ per month worth) of “always on” power, even in the dead of night. With Smappeee and about 15 minutes of investigation (involving turning off the power to various buildings one at a time) I was able to isolate the issue. Someone had turned all of the air conditioning/heating units fan’s to “on” instead of auto for “better air circulation”. By figuring this, and some more minor items, out I was able to move the “always on” category down by almost 2000W an hour. Those fans still come on when the AC comes on but, according to Smappee, that’s 8 ½ hours per day, even now in a heat wave. Overall I expect to save $100+ a month just from this one discovery.
Smappee also does a good job of giving you an in-depth look at your energy usage to understand how much things really cost so you can make smart decisions about your usage.
Smappee can be a real pain to set up. To my surprise, attaching the clamps to the electrical was quick and easy. What WASN’T easy was setting up the wifi. I’ve set up a lot of Wifi and nothing about this seemed like it should be challenging. The problem is that the setup is SLOW. I don’t mean kinda slow, I mean you have to wait 3-5 minutes between each stage to see if it worked and often when things didn’t work there was no indication. Worse, it appears that after a certain time if you do nothing it resets itself. This means you can’t start up the WPS synch, go have dinner and come back to see if it worked. You really need to be there for the entire thing. Given that Smappee has to be set up near the electric box and most electric boxes are in the basement, garage or other uncomfortable areas this is a nuisance.
Smappee also isn’t for the impatient. It took a good 24 hours to find one electrical device and significantly longer to find others. So far it hasn’t labeled any of them for me (other than giving it a default number) so I have to do some sleuthing to figure out what device it is and label it myself. Smappee at least tells me when the device turned on and off and average usage times so I usually can figure it out. Most irksome is that many things didn’t appear as devices right off. So when my daughter turned on and off the hair dryer Smappee showed the wattage difference but I wasn’t able to go right in and label it as it hadn’t shown as an event yet.
Lastly, the support is dismal. I haven’t been able to find any answers to my questions online and when I contact support they are slow to answer and then answer the wrong question.
Despite the many frustrations this product is both very cool and will almost certainly pay for itself in a month or two. For people with odd electric situations like me a device like this is invaluable. For those living in smaller or more compact spaces it probably won’t be nearly as useful.
