1.0 Neurio Sensor W1   The Neurio Sensor W1 is a WiFi-enabled electricity sensor that measures whole-home consumption, and transmits that data to the Neurio Cloud. It utilizes split-core current transformers, and so can be quickly installed in a breaker panel by an electrician or other qualified professional. The Neurio Sensor is intended for use in residential or light commercial locations. It is a monitor only, and should not be used for billing purposes. It should not be used in mission-critical applications, or any instance where its failure could endanger human life. 1.1 Features • Monitors instantaneous demand and total electricity consumption of the entire home • Transfers data to the Neurio Cloud using WiFi • Quickly installs in a breaker panel • Certified for use in Canada, the United States, and Europe • Supports all common worldwide residential and light commercial voltage configurations 3

1.2 Meet the Neurio Sensor Below is a quick guide to your new Neurio Sensor. For more detailed information, see the Installation Guide and Welcome Guide included in the box, and support.neur.io for videos, FAQs and troubleshooting tips. Voltage and Current Ports On one end of the Neurio Sensor, you’ll find the voltage and current ports. There is one voltage port, and four current ports. The markings above the current ports show their relation to the wires on the voltage cable. For instance, Current Port 1 works with Phase A on the voltage cable. Antenna and Expansion Ports On the other end, you’ll find the Antenna and Expansion Ports. The Expansion Port allows the Neurio Sensor to control other devices. 4

Antenna Cable and Mount The Neurio Sensor’s antenna mount allows you to maximize wireless range by placing the antenna outside the breaker panel, even if your panel is flush-mounted in the wall. Current Transformers and Voltage Cable The Neurio Sensor uses these to measure the energy consumption of your home. Installing these correctly is important for accurate measurements, so follow the directions carefully! The voltage cable has 4 wires on it. Depending on your installation, not all wires may be necessary. Wire Color Connection Black Phase A Red Phase B Blue Phase C White Neutral 5

The Buzzer The Neurio Sensor has a buzzer so it can tell you how it’s doing. even when it’s tucked away inside your breaker panel. It’ll use the buzzer to tell you when it’s started it’s own network, joined your home network, or thinks there was an installation problem. It’s talkative at first, but will quiet down once everything’s up and running. Below is your Neurio-to-English Phrasebook. More detail on using these chirps is provided in the Installation Guide and Welcome Guide.

2.0 Installation and Configuration   2.1 Safety Installing the Neurio Sensor requires working with voltages that are hazardous to human health, and thus should only be done by a qualified professional. Installations should be performed in accordance with the applicable electrical code for the region in which the Neurio Sensor is being installed. Whenever possible, power should be disconnected upstream from the installation location before attempting installation of the Neurio Sensor. If power cannot be disconnected, high voltages may still be present, and caution must be taken to avoid injury. If the Neurio Sensor is not used as instructed, its protection mechanisms may be impaired. Rules: 1. Installation must be performed by a qualified professional. 2. Do not use the Neurio Sensor with voltages that exceed 240V line to neutral. 3. Only install the Neurio Sensor in approved breaker panels or enclosures. 7

4. The Neurio Sensor must not be exposed to moisture, direct sunlight, extremely low or high temperatures, and conductive pollution. Consult section 2.5 for the Neurio Sensor's acceptable operating environment. 5. The Neurio Sensor must be installed in a location that limits access to only qualified personnel. 2.2 Installation Instructions Note that different installation instructions are provided for split-phase, three-phase and solar systems. If your Neurio Sensor came with an Expansion Kit for 3-phase or solar, follow the instructions provided in the kit. Otherwise, follow the Installation Guide included in the Neurio Sensor box. These instructions are also available at support.neur.io. 2.3 Configuring the Neurio Sensor and Creating an Account Instructions for configuring the Neurio Sensor are included in the Welcome Guide or at support.neur.io. Once that’s complete, you can create your account by going to my.neur.io. 2.4 Installation External to Breaker Panel If there is insufficient room to install the Neurio Sensor within the breaker panel, it can be installed externally inside an approved metallic enclosure with equivalent characteristics to a breaker panel. Follow the procedure for installation internal to the circuit breaker panel, but install the Neurio Sensor inside the secondary enclosure, and the CTs in your main breaker panel. Ensure that the connection made between the secondary enclosure and your breaker panel conforms to the electrical code for your  region.   8
