Power Detector Smart Loadshedding Detector | Eskom Utility Power Present ON/OFF Sensor | WiFi Tuya SmartLife

This unit will detect when you are loadshedding and allow you to automate smart actions such as switching off your Inverter/UPS load, Geyser, Stove and any other devices you require to be switched during a loss of utility mains power.

See additional images for connection diagram.

Typical uses:

  • Backup Batteries – extend life cycle by 50%
    • All batteries (inverter, UPS etc.) have a limited lifecycle with regards to the total number of discharges (cycles) per expected battery life. While Lithium-Ion (lifepo4) batteries have a higher number than sealed lead acid, gel or carbon they all have a limited number. Loadshedding often occurs during hours when your automated  backup inverter /UPS system is NOT really required. e.g 17h00 – 08h00 for office. By adding a smart circuit breaker [click here] or smart switch [click here] you can switch off the load during these un-necessary hours and save up to +200 cycles per annum and thereby greatly extend the life expectancy of you batteries. * Note only one input of this controller and the smart breaker/ switch must remain connected to your backup power at all times
  • Switch OFF devices during Loadshedding
    • You can choose to switch off any ‘high load’ devices such as geyser, stoves, pool pump and plugs etc. (any devices can be toggled meaning switched OFF or ON as required)
  • Switch ON devices during Loadshedding
    • In conjunction with switching OFF high load devices you can also opt to switch ON low current devices.

This unit has been assembled due to customer requests who require a ‘trigger’ when they are loadshedding (Eskom utility mains power ON or OFF). This unit will allow you to make automated actions based on whether you are loadshedding or not.  You will need a backup power system such as an inverter/UPS which does not fluctuate for the unit work. One end is connected to your Backup power and the other to  Eskom power.

The unit is enclosed within a IP65 housing (if used outdoors cable entries must be sealed).
