Purchasing from Smart Guys Australia

Has anyone purchased from Smart Guys in Australia?
I’ve been trying to email them for over a week now without a reply.
Any other recommendations for Australian purchasing?

Hi,

This is Aanand from Smart Guys Australia.

Our best contact is via email on info@smartguys.com.au. Happy to help or answer any of your questions on this forum too.

Kind regards
Aanand

My question was for a re-supply ETA on the IoTaWatt 50amp Split Core Current Transformer, but I see they are back in stock on the web store.

I have already tried twice to email info@smartguys.com.au, but got no reply, that doesn’t build trust in doing online purchases from your web store.
It may be worth checking your spam/junk email settings in your email program and/or email server!

Best regards
Ron.

Hi Ron,

I can only apologise, we respond to most emails within 24 hours but I’m still struggling to find yours so it must be an issue with our spam filter which we will look into.

We will reach out to you directly but you can check out our feedback profile on eBay here:

Delivery arrived
Now the hard part starts, ha.

Yes, I bought mine from them, took about a week to Western Australia, which is pretty good at the moment!
Have yet to set it all up :wink:

cheers

Hi Mark
Yeh, delivery was quick, with friendly service once I got contact with them.
As for installation that’s my bad, to many other priorities at present, who said retirement was a cruise.
It’s pissing me off cause I’m excited to get it setup.
How is your setup going? Can we have 25 hours a day?
Regards Ron.

Hi Ron,

in much same boat as you with time. Am doing first testing tonight on the bench, accuracy looks good, but when testing wifi strength near meterbox which is opposite end of house to the router as I suspected signal strength is too low for reliable connection so i will have to add a dedicated access point via ethernet just near the meterbox for it all to work.
Very impressed so far with the unit, I had a go at making my own home brew single channel monitor using an arduino based on openenergymonitor site a couple of years back, but my hardware was unreliable kept losing heaps of data, so happy to spend a few hundred and get it sorted properly.
I didnt want to buy openenrgymonitor hardware as not enough input channels for what I want to look at.

cheers
Mark
