Proteus C5 - Clamp on electric load current sensor
All Proteus WiFi Sensors require a 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi network for operation.
Why monitor with a current sensor rather than check if power is on or not
Even when power is on, a device may or may not be running. If the equipment fails to turn on due to a fault, just knowing power is ON is not enough. With current based monitoring, the sensor trips only when the device is ON.
Can I use Proteus C5 to just monitor if my wall outlet loses power?
Yes you can but with a delay. It is possible to just monitor an outlet and be notified if there is power there or not. Please read the installation guide on how to use your Proteus C5 as a voltage monitor.
- Monitor if a pump or motor has turned ON (or OFF)
- Monitor if a refrigerator has turned OFF
- Monitor if an electric equipement is turned on at a specific time interval
- Monitor if the TV is ON for more than a set time period (eg: 30 mins) at a specific time of day (eg: between 3 and 5 PM)
Voice Call Alerts
Voice call alerts are part of the advanced options package and is a paid option.
All proteus sensors, unless specified otherwise, are powered directly from a 120-240V AC wall outlet. Simply plugin the sensor to a standard wall outlet and you are good to go.
