I've been using this app for a few months and really like it. However, the watts used as shown is not correct. AEP uses a Multiplier of 40 to convert my meter reading to Watts, so I need to do the multiplying myself to get the correct number. It is quite disconcerting to find that you are using 4000 watts instead of 100 watts as shown. The app would be more useful and make more sense if I could enter my meter Multiplier when the app is first set up.
AEP had the opportunity with Powerly thermostats and this app to make an empowering alternative to Nest. Instead they developed an app with fewer programming options than my existing wall thermostat. It needs a lot of work. *edit 9-19-17* The app routinely fails to stay connected. I'll get an alert that there's an upcoming power event; when I tap the alert, it takes me to the app where I see the energy bridge is "offline," and nothing works. For the last 9 days I haven't been able to get the app past the login screen. It just hangs on "logging in." I've rebooted all the equipment in the house, but the problem is with the app. I'm going to remove the energy bridge and wifi thermostat because they are nothing but trouble to use.
I understand this app will have a lot of work put into it. As it stands right now it's a very useful tool to monitor my power usage in a easily viewable manner and incredibly easy to set a budget to try to save costs on enegry spendings. Once my energy bridge arrives it should allow me to more effectively track my energy usage live. It's also very helpful to have a task tracker built in to the tips and energy projects. It's very rewarding seeing projects done and my estimated savings number go up! AEP is definitely going in the right direction with this app. They seem to be continuously listening to their customers for feedback and making changes based on that so I'm very happy to see that and will be recommending this to everyone!
The app updated and now it refuses to connect to my energy bridge. It's just like when we first got them all over again
Happy to see they added bill pay. All the other features are great!
Real time usage is great. Easy to see impact of various appliances. Remote thermostat control very handy.
