I have to say, installation was a breeze and the app gave me no difficulties at all, unlike most cheap consumer electronics. The app has a good rating in the Apple store. As usual, I worked on the panel live, but this time didn't have any incidents. I bought insulated screwdrivers since I'm an idiot and always think I can work on stuff live. I was standing on the top platform of a 6' fiberglass ladder last time I shocked myself. Figured the fiberglass isolated me, but 2 wires conducted through my finger.

One thing that surprised me is the ceiling fan on low setting is showing something like 17 watts consumption. That's pretty darn low for a mechanical device.

My air handler only has 1 speed setting when I turn it on, and it consumes 1kW, which was surprisingly high. I guess I won't be running that all night to even out the various room temperatures.

I a different thread I was talking about running the air handler to circulate cool downstairs air upstairs in the summer, but it might just be cheaper to run the AC on a thermostat than a constant 1kW fan draw.
