I used to have issues with TP-Link stuff losing sync, but not recently. The Kasa app has been pretty good lately and no lost devices in quite a few months. It's my favorite in the 3 different products I've tried.

There's no getting around working on the live panel when you attach to the main feed, but I just wore rubber gloves and shoes, and the sensors themselves are plastic. Of course, a smart person would turn off the main breaker for the branch circuits, but my family needed power at the time I was working on it.

Anyone have a way to read the data on a house smart meter? My utility company supposedly can see a 40 watt consumption on the 220 circuits.

I spun off my own thread on household power metering so I don't hijack this thread. Here it is:

Sign up for an online account with your utility, then they should provide the info online.
