Getting the hot tub heater out of peak usage

Using Sense, I found one of my big usages was a hot tub heater which came on randomly every several hours (and a lot more in the winter, as expected). I purchased an ECO WiFi power switch box with a timer that allows me to turn off the heater during peak periods, and I shifted to turning on the heater in the super off peak beginning of the day before 6 am when electricity costs 7 cents a Kw hour.

This saves me not being in peak period 3-6pm when it is 21cents a kw hour and I found when it it on it draws 5000w for about 15 minutes each heating cycle。this switch had kept my on peak to less than 1200 watts for 4,000 sqft house
