UltraECM3 is a HomeSeer3 plug-in for the Brultech Energy Consumption Monitors (ECM). The plug-in connects directly to one or more Brultech ECM devices providing HomeSeer a view into the electrical power consumption of your home.
The Brultech ECM-1240 and GreenEye Energy Monitors are multi-channel energy consumption monitors designed for use with residential electrical systems. The ECM-1240 is used to measure consumption of up to 7 electrical circuits and provides up to the minute consumption data. The GreenEye Monitor (GEM) is used to measure consumption of up to 32 electrical circuits and provides up to the minute consumption data. The GEM also includes 8 temperature sensing and 4 pulse counting inputs.
How It Works
The UltraECM3 HSPI connects directly to the Brultech Energy Consumption Monitors using either a serial or TCP network connection. The packets received from the Brultech ECM devices can be buffered and averaged to reduce loads for ECM units configured to send frequent updates. The UltraECM3 plug-in provides real-time access to Watts and KWh. The plug-in allows you to create a HomeSeer device for just the ECM devices you want HomeSeer to display and react to.
- Support for the Brultech DashBox
- Support for up to 9 Brultech ECM-1240 and GreenEye Monitor devices
- Create only the HomeSeer devices you need to track energy usage in your home
- A Loads web page provides access to the real-time energy usage
- Trigger a HomeSeer event based on the ring count or an incoming call
- The Dashboard web page provides a cost and usage breakdown of all electrical circuits connected to the Brultech ECM devices
- The Energy Charts web page displays watts and KWh usage over time
- Error Try/Catch logic to ensure plug-in doesn't fail with an unhandled exception
- Multiple threading allows UltraECM3 HSPI to communicate with the Brultech ECM devices without disrupting the performance of HomeSeer
- Use plug-in UltraECM3 along with the Brultech ECM-1240 or the Brultech GreenEye Energy Monitors to monitor the electrical power consumption of household loads, sub-panels and panels.
- Generate an e-mail notification whenever the main panel or an individual circuit exceeds a set threshold.

Brultech Energy Consumption Monitors
The Brultech ECM-1240 is a multi-channel energy consumption monitor. The Brultech ECM-1240 is used to measure consumption of up to 7 electrical circuits and provides up to the minute consumption data.
Brultech GreenEye Monitor (GEM)
The Brultech GreenEye Monitor (GEM) is a multi-channel energy consumption monitor. The GEM is used to measure consumption of up to 32 electrical circuits and provide up to the minute consumption data.
The GEM also includes temperature sensing and pulse counting inputs. It can accept pulses from water or gas meter which have pulse outputs and provide consumption information.
