Load Control has been developed in order to help you control and manage the energy consumptions of your home system. Set first and second threshold and then establish the components’ list you want to disable as soon as the thresholds are reached in order to avoid the power off of the main switch.
How to install plugin modules
The following video shows you how to download EVE Logic tool on your PC and then how to install EVE plugin modules. All these steps have to be done using EVE Manager software which connect to EVE Server for installation. You can also check the plugin modules installation page.
How to configure the plugin
This video shows you how to configure the specific plugin module. Get to the configuration page entering http://your_IPaddress/logic/plugins/load-control as URL on your browser. Otherwise use the plugin configuration area on EVE Manager software tool.
Step by step support
1. Enable/Disable plugin
To enable/disable the plugin to use click the ON/OFF button on the right corner on top of the web page screen. Do not forget to turn the plugin ON in order to make it work.
2. Main setting
Choose component from drop down menu you want the power consumption to read. Then choose component from drop down menu you want the power generated to read.
3. Thresholds setting
Set first and second thresholds. You need to get these information from your energy contract (the thresholds of energy you are allowed to reach).
Note: Second threshold must be greater than first one.
4. Timer setting
You are allowed to overtake the first threshold energy value for the time established on timer line.
As soon as the time will have run out, the system will begin disable components in order to help you stay under the first threshold value.
Note: The system will immediately disable any component in case the second threshold will be reached before the time established on timer line.
5. Loads directory
Choose components you want the system to disable to use as soon as the set timer has run out of time or in case the second threshold is reached in order to help you stay under the first threshold value. Choose components from your drop down menù.
Note: Components will start to be disabled from the first one on top of the list. As soon as the energy value become lower than the first threshold value, components get enbled to use again starting from component on bottom of the list (after the same period of time chosed as timer).
You can now choose to edit your previous choice. Click on the arrows to move components you want to disable upper or lower. You can also choose to remove components from the list. Click on the “X” icon and component will automatically be removed from configuration.
6. Extra Loads directory
You can also choose components you want the system to activate when you are producing energy. Choose components from your drop down menù.
