Neat product, but I don't think a homeowner should be installing this themselves. Not sure if this would be CSA approved to be mounted in a panel either...

There are people in my second year class that don't know what CT means. Scary to think that this video glosses over their operation, and how you can get a nasty shock if lifting the leads. I am all about people being self sufficient, but structure fires caused by electricity are all too common, and I think unqualified people working in a panel is a quick route to that scenario.

That install should not be done by a home owner. In fact, even if an electrician installs it, they should shut the incoming power off as well.

This wont work. Its for 2 phase panels, that's what the video says so it must be correct.

I could be wrong but they may be impedance protected sensors in lieu of a true CT.

And electricians install many products they have no clue how they work, ask the average electrician one year out of his apprenticeship what a CT is or how a circuit breaker or transformer works and be ready for a long list of incorrect answers.

Preaching to the choir. I am trying to get coworkers to realize LED lights have a driver instead of a ballast at one job. They are old school, and will probably change their nomenclature as quick as the diehards will cede political views in the controversial talk section of this forum.

I know that LED is also called "decoration" on these forums, but "fire vacuum" bulbs are going away, whether it is wanted or not.
