Connect your Shelly 3EM 3-phase meter to the Wattics energy management dashboard

In this article we will look at setting up your Shelly 3EM meter and integrating it with your Wattics platform to have access to your equipment energy usage at your fingertips.

Your Shelly 3EM meter provides you with a simple way to monitor your energy usage across each of three phases on any given circuit – looking both at produced and consumed energy. The device can transmit data via any WiFi network and can be controlled from your laptop, tablet or phone. It is possible to customise your device to track sunlight hours; abide by daily/weekly schedules; or be sensitive to energy usage thresholds, meaning that the device itself switches off when not required, or it can switch off circuits if they have exceeded their consumption limits*

*You should have Admin rights to enable Shelly integration with your Wattics platform. If you require access, please request this from the administrators associated with your Wattics account. In addition, you need to ensure that your Shelly cloud account is set up.

1- Where do I find Shelly in my Wattics dashboard?

Log in to your Wattics dashboard, and navigate to the Integrations tool in the Admin tab.

    *Please note that some functionalities listed above such as remote switch on/off of equipment can be actioned through the Shelly Cloud app. You can also view the Shelly 3EM device specifications here.

    **Available parameters include individual phase energy counters (kWh) and powers (active kW, reactive kVAr and apparent kVA) plus currents (A) and line-to-neutral voltages (V). Which parameters will make it to your Wattics platform will depend on the selected data point type (single vs multi-value).
