You will need to provide your name, email address, ESIID and meter number (from your electricity bill)
• Under My Account / HAN Devices, select “Add Device”
TM
You will need to supply the MAC Address and Install Code found on the back of your EAGLE
Note that it may take some time for your utility to enable the smart meter to connect with your device (status on
SMT will indicate “meter ready”. You must wait until this process is complete before proceeding; your EAGLE™
will not function correctly until the smart meter is enabled.
Once this step is complete you have 21 days to complete Step 3 or you will have to start the provisioning
process again! (Further details of this procedure can be found at http://swesmarts.com/products/support)
Step 3: Power up your EAGLE™
1) Plug the Ethernet cable into a port on your router, and the other end into the Ethernet port on your
EAGLE™.
2) Plug the AC adapter into a nearby wall outlet, and plug the other end into the power socket on your
EAGLE™.
3) Allow two minutes for the device to boot up. You should see that the Power, ZigBee, and Ethernet status
LED lights are all on continuously. This indicates that the unit is functioning normally.
Step 4: Connect to your EAGLE™
You should now be able to connect to your EAGLE™ using a web browser.
Type the Local Web Address of the EAGLE™ (found on the Information Label) into the URL field of your web
browser and connect.
When your web browser connects to the EAGLE™, you should see the Web Viewer home page:

Note: The computer running the web browser must be connected to the same router as the EAGLE™, and the
computer must also be running multicast Domain Name System (mDNS), which is known as Bonjour on Apple
computers. mDNS may be already installed on your computer, as many printers and Apple’s iTunes use this
protocol. If you need to manually install mDNS on your Windows PC, you can find instructions at:
http://support.apple.com/kb/DL999. No further configuration is required for Mac computers.
Step 5: View Your Meter Data
The EAGLE™ Web Viewer is designed to look and work like the Rainforest Automation EMU-2™ In-Home
Display product.
The two black buttons on the right side of the display screen can be used to cycle through a number of screens
that show:
• Current time and date
• Total meter reading, in kWh
• Instantaneous demand in kW and $/hr
• Current electricity price in effect
• Text message from the utility (if any)
Simply click on the upper button to page up through the sequence of screens, and click the lower button to page
