Be sure contacts have been added in the Manage Contacts page before setting notifications.

  • SmartHub web: Hover over, or click, the Notifications tab, click Manage Notifications. Expand the Billing and/or Usage sections to modify your notification preferences. Any existing phone number(s) and/or email address(es) can be selected per notification.
  • SmartHub mobile app: Click More > Settings > Manage Notifications > select the notification type that is being modified under Billing and/or Usage.

SmartHub web:

How do I set up power usage alerts?

Power Usage Alerts sends you an email and/or text message notification when your energy usage exceeds the maximum and/or minimum amount (threshold) that you’ve set up. The hourly usage threshold feature is not supported at this time, only the daily threshold.
  • Tips:
    • Analyze your usage to determine what thresholds will work best for you. View your monthly bills (located in Billing History) and the average amount of kilowatt hours (kWh) used per month and divide by 30.
    • View detailed kWh usage information on SmartHub under the My Usage tab. The Usage Explorer screen in the Usage details (located at the bottom of the screen) shows your high and low usage for a specific date range, including a specific day.
    • If the threshold is set too low for the Daily High Usage, that may generate a notification every day being that you’ve exceeded the threshold. Example: The customer has set their Daily High Usage to 60. The following day their consumption reaches 74 kWh. Therefore, the customer will receive a notification the following day because they exceeded their threshold.
  1. Click the Options button on the right-hand side of the page and a window will open to edit usage alert subscriptions. The email address and/or mobile number you set up for SmartHub will be shown in the ‘Contacts’ section.
  2. Select the Account Number from the drop-down menu (Meter ID will auto-populate).
  3. Input desired kWh thresholds. Select any combination of the 2 available options (you do not have to use both fields):
    1. Hourly High Usage – The Hourly High Usage Threshold feature is not supported at this time.
    2. Hourly Low Usage – The Hourly Low Usage Threshold feature is not supported at this time.
    3. Daily High Usage – The maximum amount of kWh used before a notification is sent out.
    4. Daily Low Usage – The minimum amount of kWh used before a notification is sent out.
  4. Click on the contact(s) that you want to receive the alert.
  5. Click Save Subscription button. Note: To add an additional contact to receive the same alerts, select that Contact in the list and click Save Subscription again.
  6. Set up and save additional thresholds and contacts, if desired.
  7. The values you set will show up on the right side of the window.
  8. To stop alerts, click the red “X” next to the contact email or phone number in the Currently Selected Options column.
  9. After Save Subscription is clicked, the window can be closed.
