The idea is to use mfi like this device:
But reading the documentation i've found this:
AC Current Measurement
The mFi Current Sensor measures the AC current flowing in the circuit, not the power. Note: Power is voltage multiplied by current. The mFi Current Sensor measures only the current (up to 100A maximum), and not the voltage. The result indicates non-TrueRMS (Root Mean Square) current in amps, which may require additional analysis for non-linear loads, such as switching power supplies.
So now i'm not sure if mfi will give me the data i want, which in the end
is only the total house kwh consumption.

The current Current Sensors will not fit around the wire feeding the house.
Probably can't read the amp. draw of all of his stuff either.

are not UL approved for installation in a distribution
panel, and definitely won't meet NFPA standards.
In other words, it's not safe to use them in this

I have a few here at home an 90% or more of our clients have them too...
Do exactly what you want...no fuss...
P.s. I don't work for either ubnt oe powerhouse dynamics

Now I'm usually on the ubnt side on most things, but your looking for something like this..
Thanks for sharing that - I've been eyeballing the new product from Brultech but they're 18 months past when they intended to start shipping, so I've stopped holding my breath.
The only thing I'm not sure I like about that one is that it costs a bit more and requires their software... but it looks like it may be a bit more polished.
