Pairing the eGauge with a HomePlug adapter

By default all HomePlug-compliant PLC devices use the same encryption key – this means that, out of the box, any HomePlug-compliant device should be able to connect to any other HomePlug-compliant device without any adjustments. However, if there are multiple HomePlug adapters in the same location, or if there are security concerns regarding PLC traffic, it may be necessary to pair an eGauge with its HomePlug adapter. This is typically not required.

The document below has instructions for pairing eGauge devices with their respective HomePlug adapters. Also included are instructions to rescue an “orphaned” device (that is, an eGauge or HomePlug with an unknown encryption key). These steps typically cannot be performed remotely, and require physical access to both the eGauge meter and the HomePlug.
