    Very good system for watching over the bigger loads on your household electrical system. Most everyone including me could go with the "G" model as it is easier to use a network connected tablet or phone instead of the included display in the "C" model. My "C" model display updates slowly and never turns off the back light. These are only small annoyances though. The instillation was very easy and has worked flawlessly. My only real complaint is the overwhelmed server takes a very long time to load the tracking information. Once loaded it updates quickly so it is not a big problem.

    Device works fine - does exactly what it should. Found the directions a bit lacking in that I wanted to use it without the Gateway - worked it out myself.

    i had a problem with the first TED5000 I had and had to return it to Energy Inc. I bought this one to replace it and it is working great. I love being able to see my electricity usage. Just having the info available has helped reduce our usage. It has also been a useful tool to reduce our always on usage while justifying the use of other items all the time based on minimal savings from turning them off.

    Install the CTs & MTU in a few minutes. Instructions should be really understood before starting then all will be OK.
    Took some time moving the Gateway around the house until a half way decent reception spot found. Still stops completly for an hour at a time so will have to find the source of interference. Considering moving it right next to the MTU and running a long network cable to the router.
    Software really slows down the computer and needs to be re-run on occasions but when the novelty has worn of it will not need to be on all the time! Very happy with the concept and design. Connected to Google so can check what is happening when away from the house.

    No problems encountered installing the unit. Just need to exercise caution when installing the current transformers around the main service lines. Web interface was easy to set up after I read the ted5000-usermanual.pdf file. Updating the firmware was a little bit challenging. Needed to go to the user forum for advice with that.
    The display is only usable in the same room as the gateway. So it

    Works as expected. Easy to install if you're comfortable working with electrical. Had to RMA the first display unit, but the second is working fine.
