Unfortunately it is much more complicated. It has to obtain the power being used by the house plus the power being produced by the solar...

I eventually want to control the air conditioners based not just on temperature, but also how much power the house is exporting. I have...

Did you find the Sensibo supported more functions than the Broadlink?
16/10/2019 - 07:24
How many different air conditioners have you tried the Sendibo on? Did it support all the functions available on the remote control? The...

I was just making it clear to people that are thinking I can just add one of these devices to a non-WiFi air conditioner when purchasing a...

As for this actual air conditioning unit it has fairly low energy rating compared to some other units available. If you intend you run the...

While they have their place for existing units they have major draw backs compared to a unit with WiFi built in: 1) Only built in WiFi can...

Yes, but there are much cheaper power monitoring smart switches such as the Aldi one for $20 when they come out twice a year or $10 if your...

Only during the initial setup you need to force you phone to use 2.4GHz. After that it doesn't matter how you connect to the same network.

The internals of the Brilliant allow flashing to open source firmware which can have advantages. Don't know about the Arlec.

Do you mean HS100? The HS110 has power monitoring.

Any device that uses a secure wifi connection needs the password to use it. WiFi is bidirectional. Therefore the smart switch needs to have...

My HS100 don't make a noise and neither does my one of these. If it is a really high pitched noise then may be it makes it and I can't hear...

Aldi sold a range of Brilliant WiFi LED lights in the last couple of months.

I suspect Bunnings didn't like Brilliant dealing with Aldi. Can't blame Brilliant as Bunnings didn't seem to give them a good location or...

Some do power consumption. These aren't as secure as they could be, but unless you leave it outside or where someone could steal it, your...

Don't think they have even been stocking these in our Coles (The Pines Gold Coast). Kmart next has them. At that prices I would have bought...

Heat pumps aren't meant to be regularly turned off and on at the GPO. You should find out from the manufacturer if this a suitable thing to...

May be the title should be changed to say 36V. As I looked at and thought 18V chainsaw isn't going to cut it!
07/09/2019 - 17:38
No, standards are great, everyone should have at least one!

I wonder why it Excludes the 470lm and 806lm packs. The 1400lm ones would actually cost more to make.

I wish they were sold as singles. I also wish they had an RGB version for around $20. What are most people doing with the wall switch?...

No Band 28 (4G 700MHz) means it won't be good on Telstra or Optus in some areas, particular rural regional.
