Hi all, The wife and I have done some work on getting json data from a Raspberry PI, running PI1Monitor. The Pi is reading the data from a smart meter P1 port and we built a virtual device that shows the meter readings in a VD screen. I included the VD and LUA-code. It's not pretty, but it works. We would like to take this to the next level, but here is where we need help. - Would it be possible to change the VD so it delivers the current usage to the power metering of the HC2. Right now, we have only some switches and dimmers that are counted in the power panel and we would like to have all power usage visible and we're not so interested in the usage of individual lights. We could use "some" help with that. - How can we add icons to the labels. We've seen some examples with beautiful screenshots, but we are stuck with plain text. Feel free to use the code. We're happy to share it with you. Regards, Erwin & Linda Slimme meter.lua Slimme_meter.vfib
The Qubino 3-Phase Smart Meter can operate an external contactor if certains parameters are set - this is a very smart solution for controlling that you can cut power in case of to high current (power) consumption. BUT, The setup method described is based on settng certain parameters in the Smart Meter while included (no 7=3 and no 100=11), then exclude the unit and when included again it will be noticed that there is an output activiated. The problem is that HC2 over writes alla parameters to default while including the unit making the idea off Smart Meter useless Advicew please
Hello all, Have anyone tried to implement some sort of power management for your homes? Then thinking of logic to turn on/off loads pending on current power consumption or time of day. Reason for this thread is that we in Norway have implemented the smart power meters and in the future we might expect to get different power cost based on instant consumption / time of day. Some might also have solar power or other which generates power and would like to limit consumption from elsewhere. Then thinking of powering off or reducing power on electric heating, lowering setpoints of heating, switching etween loads for a period or other means to keep the peak loads or consumtion during certain hours down.
