This Quickapp retrieves energy consumption, energy production, gas and water usage from the (P1 Monitor) energy, gas and water meter. This Quickapp uses the software of ztatz.nl to get the values from your smart energymeter. The ztatz plug-and-play software can run on a Raspberry Pi or in a Docker container. The Energy consumption and energy production are added to the HC3 energy panel. Use the child devices Todays Consumption and Todays Production to store energy data (kWh) in the Energy Panel. And use the child devices Consumption and Production for instantaneous power (Watt) in the Energy Panel calculations. Child Devices for: Consumption (Watt) (input for instantaneous power in Energy Panel calculations) Production (Watt) (input for instantaneous power in Energy Panel calculations) Todays Consumption (kWh) (input for energy panel) Todays Production (kWh) (input for energy panel) Waterflow (Liter) Consumption High (kWh) Consumption Low (kWh) Production High (kWh) Production Low (kWh) Consumption L1 (Watt) Consumption L2 (Watt) Consumption L3 (Watt) Production L1 (Watt) Production L2 (Watt) Production L3 (Watt) Ampere L1 (Amp) Ampere L2 (Amp) Ampere L3 (Amp) Voltage L1 (Volt) Voltage L2 (Volt) Voltage L3 (Volt) Total Gas (m³) Total Waterflow (m³) Interval: It is possible to process messages from the smart meter every second. Of course, this is only possible if the smart meter actually sends a message every second. This can be turned on via the ztatz software P1 port configuration page via the "maximum processing speed" option. Note that this gives a higher load on the Rpi (or Docker). It has been tested on the Rpi3/Rpi4 and works well on it. Older or other RPIs have not been tested. The P1 Monitor QuickApp uses 2 API calls each cycle, and if you also use Waterflow, 3 API calls each cycle. With an interval setting of 10 seconds there is an API call every 5 seconds (and with Waterflow enabled, every 3.33 seconds). So the fastest interval setting will probably be 3 seconds with Waterflow and 2 seconds without Waterflow.

Guys, I have seen some very cheap Z-wave devices at eBay... Please see link below http://www.ebay.com/sch/aixi-smart-home-security/m.html?item=122479369236&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2562 Ia anyone has tried these no brand devices? It looks like "original" copy of some famous smart home manufacturers . Would like to hear your opinion on that..... thanks
Hi! I would like to show a little DIY project I did lately to enhance the Z-Wave receiving possibilities of the power meter device from Aeon Labs (DSB28-ZWEU E2). The device is located in the electrical distribution box which is made of steel. I put a repeater in it and it worked for months flawlessly, but since 2 weeks it is no more integrated in the Z-Wave network (deleting and reincusion, manually mesh rebuild didn't work). (Be careful, this device is working with 230 Volts, I am an electrical engineer and know what I am doing. Only let professionals do this work!) So I opened the device and remove the internal antenna and mount an external into it: Dismantled device with the internal antenna To make an external antenna a GND pin is needed for the shield of the Koax cable. The cable is taken from an old external WiFi antenna. I isolated the shield with a 'shrinking tube' to build the antenna it is important to remove the outer shield weave exactly about 86 mm (which is lamda/4 of 868MHz) My first thought was to drill a hole in the steelbox to get the antenna outside of the box. But I don't like the idea, because the Box is located at my porch at the main entrance of my house -so everyone would see the ugly antenna... So I shove the 80 cm long antenna into the electro tube which leads the lines into the house. This works since 3 days perfect and I will report in the next few weeks if it is still working. I think this solution will work with every Z-Wave device (also with battery powered ones). Sometimes it could be a matter of a few zentimeters if a device is reaching the Z-Wave network and is working or not.
Guest posted a topic in Home AutomationHi. Now, we started to install clamp power meters from AEON. At the first view, it works really cool. When I turn on my fan, or boiler I see proper value of consumption. Because I know fan is 1800 Watts, and boiler about 2000 Watts. So value of current consumption looks realistic. But, our problem started when we checked consumption for 1 week. As additional info, we installed several devices for different customers, and all of them has their own hardware electric meters. And of course we wanted to see same value for z-wave meter, and usual hardware meter. But unfortunately (I don't know why) z-wave meter shows smaller values. I'm sorry for probably stupid question, but is it okay to see such result? 1. I have new meters with 1.8 firmware. 2. I tried to modify different parameters like update intervals and so on. 3. Double checked connection according to manual. 4. Difference between values - something like 200%.. 5. How is accurete your AEON meters? Have you compared calculated Watts/month with you electic bill? Thank you for reply.
