Instructions:

  1. Click on the icon in the lower left corner of the MyEyedro page (this is the Plugin Menu). Select Live Demand.
  2. Select the Display Group you wish to view from the dropdown menu.
  3. Select the time interval you wish to view from the dropdown menu.
  4. You can view historical data using the date picker.
  5. Or by clicking on the aggregate graph.
  6. The legend can be collapsed to view the graph in more detail.
  7. The graph shows each sensor as a unique color, with the vertical scale being set by the highest measured Wattage reading of all shown sensors.
  8. Hover the mouse over a sensor’s color in the graph to temporarily cause the other colors to dim and give more detailed information about that sensor’s readings.
  9. Click and drag on the graph to zoom in on data for a closer look.
  10. Click the sensors in the legend to turn them on or off in the graph.
  11. The Legend displays the measured data of each sensor in a Display Group.  Each sensor is represented by a color that is reflected in the main graph when individual sensors are displayed.  If Aggregate is selected from the Options menu, then only one color will be displayed.
  12. The button next to Options refreshes the data.
  13. In the Options menu you can set data to display as Power (in Watts), Current (in Amps), Voltage (V), or Power Factor (PF).
  14. In Options you can also turn the following on or off: Area Graph (whether or not the graph shows a line or is filled in below it), Time-of-Use bands (TOU rate setting only), Show Aggregate (whether or not the graph displays multiple sensors or all sensors in a display group as a single unit), Device Name in Legend (whether or not the Eyedro device’s name, set in Device Settings, is visible in the legend).
  15. You can select either Auto graph scale or specify a Min and Max scale.  See Customizing Live Demand for more details.
