Monitor power consumption from external smart socket




I have a remote "server" (basically a converted desktop) whose power consumption I'd like to measure and keep track of.

Do you know of any smart socket that has power consumption tracking that can be imported into PRTG?

I don't care about it's smart features and it should be accessible over WiFi or USB.


PS: No, I don't have an UPS that offers power consumption data.

Hi Loft,

Thanks for reaching out to us!

This sounds like a good fit using Sonoff Smart Sockets. You can take a look at this blog article to read how to configure the socket itself and how to then integrate it into your PRTG monitoring.

Kind regards,
