Ecojoko Getting Started –

Thanks to Linky meter with which most houses in France are now equipped and Enedis application accessible to everyone who has this meter, you can already monitor your daily electricity consumption. But there are limits. He is consulted only for the past day, and not in real time. On the other hand, if the total consumption of the day before is known, it is not possible to distinguish between the consumption of a particular device.

However, it is technically possible, as suggested by the Ecojoko device. Based on the electrical signal signatures of the devices, it can distinguish between the devices and indicate whether the consumption is from a kitchen station, appliances, or even a hot water tank supply. We had the opportunity to install it to see how it works.

Installation: accessible to everyone

The problem with this type of device when it comes to electricity is the installation procedure. However, the designers promise that this is done very simply. Indeed, other than the screws, if you want to hang the elements on the wall, which remains optional, nothing technical is included in the package.

There is a dial that reports information and its power, a sensor and its box that already houses the batteries (2 years of autonomy), as well as an Ethernet cable if you want to connect the dial in this way, and not with home WiFi.

The socalled “assistant” Ethernet port is located on the back of the device near the power cable connection.


This helper can be wallmounted, but another accessory also allows you to place it on a piece of furniture. In any case, it should be near the outlet. Since this device also records temperature and humidity levels, it may be interesting to place it in a living area away from a heater and windows if you want stable readings.

Three buttons on the device allow you to move between the four main screens or change the displayed data.


The sensor and its box are more impressive, but do not have to be installed in a conspicuous place. The sensor is fixed with adhesive on the circuit breaker, and the attached battery box can also be placed or hung on the wall.



All these indications are provided by the assistant of the application, which primarily helps us connect the watch face to our home WiFi network. The QR code to be scanned on the watch face allows you to set up the connection.

Circuit breaker

We then head to attach the sensor to the circuit breaker. It is placed above or below to receive an electrical signal. As specified, this is not a Linky counter, but a general machine at home.

WiFi connection

Finally, you must fill in information about the type of current contract with the electricity supplier and the instructions regarding the Linky account. They are easy to find using the Enedis app by creating an account if you haven’t already.


Application and measures

Without waiting, the assistant reveals the first information. The main dial displays the current consumption in real time, as well as the temperature and humidity level in the room.


We find the same information in the application with access to history.


But Ecojoko can do much more. After installation, you need to wait at least 7 days to see weekly savings and 21 days to access consumption analysis according to usage. Thus, it will be able to determine the energy used for heating, cooking or household appliances.

This article will be updated shortly after all these measures are followed. The Ecojoko connected energysaving assistant can be purchased for 199 euros or rented from the manufacturer’s website for 7.99 euros per month without any obligations.
