Apply for the virtual meter
What is the Virtual meter and trail SN
The virtual meter is not a physical device but rather a service provided by IAMMETER-cloud. Users can upload data from third-party devices to IAMMETER-cloud by calling the API or using IAMMETER's cloud bridge mode (if supported), thereby accessing all services offered by IAMMETER-cloud.
The virtual meter is our latest attempt, and users can use this to integrate other energy monitoring devices (smart meters, inverters) into IAMMETER-cloud.
The trail SN is the SN of the virtual meter.
We currently offer a 6-month free trial period for the trial SN. This means that after adding this trial SN, you can use IAMMETER cloud services for free for the next six months. Regarding how to make better use of the trial SN after the six-month period expires, we are still in discussions and have not reached a conclusion. It is possible that we will provide a free trial SN for users with regular SNs, or we may introduce an annual fee for the trial SN service. All these aspects are currently undecided, and once a decision is made, we will promptly announce it on our website.
