Energy Advice

Setting up your ENVI Monitor

Setting up your ENVI Display

  1. The display power adaptor should be connected to the round socket found at the back
    of the display unit.
  2. Plug the display power adaptor into a convenient wall socket.
  3. The “Energy Now” value on the display will now show dashes. The ENVI energy monitor
    should be left powered on at all times to read energy correctly and run its clock.
  4. Remove the plastic battery tab from the back of the black transmitter unit; the
    transmitter will now be activated.
  5. If the display shows ‘0 Watts’ the display has already been paired and is ready to use.
    If it shows dashes the display and transmitter need pairing.

Pairing the ENVI Display and Transmitter

  1. Place the transmitter and the display in the same room.
  2. Remove the battery tab from the back of the transmitter.
  3. On the front locate the recessed tuning button in the centre of the transmitter.
  4. Transmitter
  5. Using a match/pen or similar, push and hold the recessed tuning button for nine seconds
    or until the LED on the transmitter has flashed ONCE.
  6. Upon releasing, the red LED on the transmitter will rapidly flash for a minute. If it doesn’t,
    please try again.
  7. Whilst the LED on the transmitter is flashing, press and hold the DOWN (V) button on the
    display until the LED on the display flashes.
  8. When you release the button the screen will show a tuning signal indicating the display is
    tuning to the transmitter.
  9. Once tuning is completed, your display will clear and then “0 watts” will appear. The aerial
    icon will appear indicating pairing has been successful.

Fitting the Transmitter to your Meter

  1. Now that the transmitter and display are paired take the black transmitter with its
    attached CT jaw to your mains meter.

    This is often on an outside wall or in your garage, utility room or porch. If you live in a
    flat, it can often be found outside your front door in the communal staircase. The ENVI
    display unit may be left in any room you wish to see it, for example the Hall or Kitchen.

    TIP: If you have one electricity meter, fit the sensor jaw as described below. If you have
    two electricity meters, choose the one which supplies your household electricity, not the
    one which supplies your night storage heaters.
  2. Find the thick round wires connected to the electricity meter. The CT jaw should be
    placed around the live cable which runs from your meter to your fuse box, this is
    usually the fourth cable from the left.

    Transmitter
    IMPORTANT: When looking at the cables leaving the bottom of the meter, they should
    be fully insulated and you should not be able to see any of the cable conductor or core.
    If you do see the live conductor, do not touch the cable and consult a qualified
    electrical installer for advice.
  3. Choose a place on the wire’s length where there is some room around and behind it.
    Encircle the wire with the jaw of the CT. Please note, it should not be “clamped” onto
    the wire. It is safe to ease the wire forwards to make room, provided this is done gently.
  4. Place the transmitter in any suitable dry location, as high as possible where it will not
    fall within the length of its cable. As soon as this is done, the ENVI display will start to
    work. No electrical damage can occur to either the electrical installation or the transmitter
    by choosing the wrong wire.
