Rather than rehash the previous posts but I will add that I personally would not use this device because if I could use this I also could wire a 240v plug.
If you have no 240v because you only have one 120v circuit then it will not work. If you have more than one circuit then it may look at the wire bringing in the power. If it is 3 conductor than it should if the panel is wired right. The two ways are either use a volt meter or buy one and plug it in hoping for the best.
