Everything you need to know about placing and installing Tibber Pulse KM.

Updated over a week ago

New addition to the Pulse family! 👪🏽

Now we welcome Pulse KM, specially developed for Kamstrup's OMNIPOWER® meters. Pulse KM is equipped with an antenna for enhanced Wi-Fi support and also has a module that allows you to draw the necessary power directly from the meter 🎊

First things first: Enable the HAN port on the power meter

The HAN port must be enabled for Pulse to get information from your meter. It is closed by default. To open it, contact your utility company and ask them to open the HAN port. In some cases, this may take a couple of days.

Tibber Pulse KM connects directly to your electricity meter, no electrician needed. Plug and play 👇

How to connect to Pulse KM

  1. Go to the Tibber app ➡️ Power-ups, find Pulse and select connect. Follow the instructions in the app - scan the QR code or enter the code manually.

  2. Plug Pulse KM directly into the output on top of the meter (no extra cables needed).

  3. Install the antenna: The antenna can be placed on the inside or outside of the cabinet in which the meter is located. If the antenna is placed on the outside, it should be attached on top and the cable should exit on the underside of the cabinet (to avoid the risk of water entering the meter's cabinet).

  4. When the installation is complete, you will see the consumption in the Tibber app via the Pulse bubble. If you don't see this, click on the cogwheel ⚙️ to add the Pulse bubble.

Location of Pulse KM and the antenna

Pulse needs good WiFi coverage. It comes with an antenna that you connect for better WiFi coverage.

Some tips and tricks for installation:

  • If you have a power cabinet in the basement, you may want to place the antenna on the outside of the cabinet for the best possible reception. Make sure that no water enters the meter cabinet.

  • If Pulse has poor coverage, it may be that the antenna is too far away from the WiFi router. A small tip here is to try moving the router or setting up a WiFi extender.

  • Pulse has been tested down to 20 degrees below zero and up to +50 degrees, but is not fond of water, moisture or condensation. Moisture damage is not covered by warranty or right of complaint.
