The Energy app is designed to show you your energy usage as accurately as possible. This is done through graphs. For every meter you install you get one or more detailed graph in the energy app.
‘Now’ shows you your live energy usage.
‘Day’ shows a day's data with a 5 minute resolution.
’Week' shows a week's data with a day resolution.
‘Month’ shows all weeks within the selected month.
‘Year’ shows a full year with a month resolution.
You can use the navigators < , > and >| arrows in the navigator to move forward and backwards per time period. For example to last week or last month.
Graphs have a different color depending on the type of data they are showing. Most common graphs have the following colors.
'Purple' shows your power usage.
'Green' shows your power delivered to the grid (P1 meter) or power production (kWh meter)
'Red' shows your gas usage.
Clicking on a graph shows you more detailed information. The screen will turn to utilize the full screen. You can tap on the graph to bring up a hovering function showing you the exact usage for the selected time.
Turning the phone back to the original position will exit the full screen graph.
Using multiple meters will give you multiple graphs on your home screen. You can rearrange these graphs under Settings > Graphs > Edit.
Changing Graph Size
There are 4 different sizes for graphs; mini, small, medium and large. You can change the size of your graph under Settings > Graphs > 'Your Graph' > Size.
Graph names, icons and profiles
You can change a graph name under Settings > Graphs > 'Your Graph' > Name. In the same screen you can also choose a profile and a designated icon for your graph. The profiles determine what types of graphs can be generated.
Enabling and disabling graphs
Want to clean up your home screen because you have many graphs? Or have a Gas graph but no gas connection? You can easily show and hide graphs on the home screen.
Go to Settings > Graphs > 'Your Graph' > Enable on/off
Energy can generate additional graphs for you if you have the following profiles.
Power Usage graph
If you have a Mains Connection graph (P1 meter) and a Solar graph (kWh meter) the app will generate an additional graph called the Power Usage graph. This graphs shows you the total power used by all devices in your home, even when you are feeding back into the grid.
Standby graph (Energy+)
The standby graph uses smart learning algorithms to determine your standby usage. This entails the total power usage devices that are always on.
