Energy monitoring and graphs - any interest?

I am currently using emoncms and I don’t like it.

It doesnt have free plan and 1 euro per feed doesn’t look appealing
It is not reactive, you need to refresh the page every time you want to see real results
It so so slow when you refresh
The app is a joke

Is there something better than that?

Or, as the alternative I can make my own, but then I would need to see if there is an interest to make it out

Hello,

You can take look on this plugin, to see if it can do what you want:

Thank you and Have a nice day,

datamine I don’t like even more, it is a so not a good idea to have data in a db on a very limited vera.

Actually, let me put it simply. It is stupid.
No reactivity, limited storage, weak hw, it is a nightmare

And there is no need to keep that data on vera, set the feed, push it out, enjoy the view

Agree, datamine trash?s my Vera edge. Are you working on an alternative ?

You can download econcms for free. It runs on a number of platforms and can be customized to whatever degree you wish.

I can, but it would not fix an issue with non reactive and very slow app.

I’d like to see first if there is an interest. I can pick it up as a sideproject, but too lazy just to do it for myself only. I want few people on board from the beginning as early adopters.

Count me in

Get some great graphics using it with Grafana running on another machine…

I ll check that, however I was really hoping to offload anything extra from vera, vera is really limited hw. And then I would need another machine to run grafana

Emonscms is great in offloading and setting a feed is really simple. But I dont like the rest of it.

i’ll signup. been looking for a good choice for years, but all have compromises. im still using the ergy plugin. (slow and no access to raw data files)

Ergy stopped working for me completely, complaining about token or something like that

Just checking if anybody else would want to see it? I probably will take it as a side project anyway, but some early adopters would be really encouraging.

API is going to be the same as for emoncms

Definitely interested. Thanks

I would be interested too!

I built my own small solution for monitoring the energy consumption of my well pump and fence lights and it was not that difficult.

I push the logs from vera to a raspberry pi and parse them to get the info I need and store that in a mysql database. Then I use c3js to create the graphs. Attached is the graph for the well pump. In orange is consumption in watts. In blue is a counter that starts when the pump starts and counts for 6 minutes. I have a scene that checks that the pump is off when the counter finishes and if sends an email.

I keep all the logs from when I started this, so if I want to add another device to the graphs, I can reprocess all files.

Free graphs / gauges visualization https://www.hundredgraphs.com

Works really simple, you just need a lua file (provided as well), change it to your liking with devices id and serviceId, add to your Luup files. Edit your Startup Lua to include
[font=courier]monitcode = require(“Moniton”)[/font]

As soon as you have started pushing data you can select what feed is going to be used for linear or gauge and it comes to your dashboard
