As per Loop FAQ we can read that:
If you have a gas meter with an electronic/digital LCD display and/or it is made by Landis & Gyr then unfortunately Loop is not yet compatible with this type of gas meter.
Therefore all of the gas meter with an electronic/digital LCD displays are not supported (yet).
In order to be Loop compatible, their support ...
There is the Sonoff Pow WiFi Switch With Power Consumption Measurement or the SONOFF S31 - COMPACT DESIGN SMART PLUG WITH ENERGY MONITORING
that seems to be popular with the DIY community. You can reflash that with
new firmware (might not be absolutely needed) and receive mqtt messages on your server. You can then have a TICK Stack to receive and store and ...
One solution would be with the help of Rasberry Pi.
Make raspberry Pi as an access point and bridge the internet via the ethernet port.
Make Rasberry Pi as your wifi connection to the smart plug.
Now install Wireshark and collect all network data from the wireless interface in the form of pcap file.
You can use SCAPY or Zeek(BRO) IDS for packet inspections ...
I have seen systems like this built using the TP-Link sockets with a raspberry pi that polls the sockets regularly enough to determine what mode a product was in (the product draws different amounts of current for different modes).
The problem will be monitoring an oven as these tend to be wired directly to high current supplies with no where to put a ...
If you already have a digital meter inline (or can fit a cheap 2nd hand one), then you can optically monitor the 1000 impulse/kwH LED which is likely present (without needing to interface to the optical serial port present on the meter). You can then integrate the impulses to approximate instantaneous power.
Bear in mind that you'll need to infer the ...
According to ZigBee, their Smart Energy v1.4 application profile has been chosen for UK's smart meter rollout.
It is my understanding that this is a secure interface, requiring the service provider to provide access to the ZigBee network, but once enabled, would allow users, given a ZigBee controller, access the smart meter's information for application use,...
You can buy your own voltage sensor and current sensor. Hook it up to an Arduino and you would be able to see the measurements on the serial monitor. This is the cheapest way of doing it.
One of the major downsides would be accuracy since you are putting everything together yourselves. The data can be noisy.
Welcome! Your question is overly broad (by necessity) and likely to be closed. Much as we would like to help, this sort of question does not fit in with the Stack Exchange model.
As to the length of my personal bit of string (hopefully others will post their own).
C/C++/Python/MicroPython are very common. Personally, I love the robustness of Ada, but can'...
Not sure if you found the answer you were looking for, but thought I'd actually sign up and give you some pointers since I've just been down this path myself.
The tool you need is 'dcc.cctk' which can be used to view and change the mode of each GPIO.
For example, the following command would show the current mode of GPIO0
Check out the sonoff pow. I did not use this by myself but the sonoff s20 power switch has the serial port populated for uploading customs firmwares. Maybe this one have it too.
There is a custom firmware sonoffBoilerPlate that works with the s20 but I'm not sure if it works with the pow.
