Article Summary: 

The article "Wireless vs. Hard-Wired Submeters" discusses the differences between wireless and hard-wired submeters for energy monitoring and management. The article explains that hard-wired submeters are physically connected to the main meter through wires, while wireless submeters use wireless communication technology to transmit data to the main meter.

The article provides a comparison of the two types of submeters based on several factors, including installation, cost, reliability, and flexibility. Hard-wired submeters are typically more reliable and provide more accurate data, but they can be more expensive and difficult to install. Wireless submeters, on the other hand, are generally more affordable and easier to install, but they may be less reliable in some cases.

The article also notes that wireless submeters are more flexible than hard-wired submeters in terms of their placement and ability to be moved from one location to another. However, they may be subject to interference from other wireless devices or obstacles that can block signals.

Overall, the article provides a comprehensive comparison of the pros and cons of wireless and hard-wired submeters for energy monitoring and management.
