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.

Hi, I have been looking in to this, but I am having trouble fetching the hourly electricity price from the web. On cold days i can see that there is usually some peaks and drops at specific times in the day, so I have made an easier approach by just using the heating panel and turning down the heat in the high peak hours. At least I do this in the underfloor heating in rooms that are not that "important" like the hall. I'm thinking about doing the same for the hot water boiler, cutting the power 2 hours in the morning and 2 in the afternoon. The prices are available at Nordpool but I cant dont know how to fetch them in to fibaro.  Link to nordpool:
