Topic: Comments and Suggestions / Realtime charts don't show gaps in data

This is true, and a connumdrum for raw data.  Why?

Because raw data is just that, SEG doesn't know when it's coming it's possible (but a little difficult) to work out what a gap would be and to then back fill the chart with zero's.  This has not been done because it hasn't been a prioroty!

Topic: Comments and Suggestions / Groups of Streams

I think stream tagging would be the answer to this.  I have had a few ideas on how this could work well with a bunch of things and a likely feature for the future.

Topic: Getting Started / Sending Zwave/Insteon Plug Monitoring Data?

Hey,

This sounds like an interesting project, and something that SEG has been designed to support by having a straight forward API.

There will need to be a bunch of work done by whomever wants to hook this stuff up, as SEG doesn't do R&D on non SEG hardware platforms.

That said, the SEG hardware is open source (hardware and firmware) and the stuff there may be useful in working through the above.

Good luck and happy hacking :D

Topic: Comments and Suggestions / More costs widgets

There is a small hack that could do this.

1.  Make your calculated stream of the Wh units, with all its required calcualtions etc.

2.  Set the calibration factor to be your energy price.

3.  Change the units of the stream to dollars, and bingo!  You "should: have a winner :D

Note, I am planning on some cost related stuff coming soon.

Topic: Comments and Suggestions / Statistics widget sorts by descending value

This sounds like the spec for another widget to plot the statistics, the purpose of this particular one is to find the highest maximums over the last week, lowest minimums etc.

One that does a similar thing to what you are asking is the Min, Max and Averages gadget that shows a lot of the above.

Hi All,

Voltage, Amps and Current scrubbing have now been added to that special feature!

Topic: Smart Energy - In the home / ISY 994i Insteon Home Automation Controller

Hi

Did you ever figure out how to get data from the ISY into SEG?  I am trying to do the same and have posted elsewhere, but no concrete solution, yet.  Unfortunately I am not a scripter.

If you are interested there is a thread discussing this on the ISY forum here:

http://forum.universal-devices.com/viewtopic.php?f=46&t=13880#p110596

 

Thanks

I think it would make more sense if this widget sorted by time rather than by value.

 

At least it should be an option if not the default.

Hi

If you are interested below is a link to a detailed discussion of the topic on the UD ISY Green forum.  I quited your reply from above into that thread.

Topic: Getting Started / Sending Zwave/Insteon Plug Monitoring Data?

Thanks tnakeisk

 

I am writing a long post on the UD ISY Green forum section discussing my energy monitoring integration discoveries and issues.  I will include the link you just provided and ask if others can help me with a "how-to" as I know little about scripting, etc.  When I finish that write-up, I will also post a link here, incase you or others want to chime in relating to the ISY side of things.

As mentioned above, my problem is two-fold 1) I cant use a Zigbee ISY since I need the Zwave module so I am boxed out of circuit monitoring, and 2) I also want to monitor various individual plugs and need to figure out how to get the Insteon/Zwave energy data from the ISY to SEG.  I expect the #2 is achieveble (once a smart person helps me figure it out).  #1 may be more problematic.  For #1, I may need to look for work arounds including:

a) Wait a (hopefully) short while for UD ISY to support Zwave circuit monitors (though I've not seen any that do lots of circuits like the GEM)

b) Use a GEM or other monitor that will NOT be compatible with ISY (no Zigbee on my ISY) and figure out how to trigger ISY actions from alerts and/or the SEG API data feeding back into ISY.  Likely this can be done, but it will likely be harder than #2 and I expect there would be latency issues (but may not matter too much)

c) Something else I haven't thought of...

 

Thanks again

I don't think it works the same for voltage and current. Try it and see if it does.

Topic: Getting Started / Sending Zwave/Insteon Plug Monitoring Data?

I'm sure anything is possible as long as it can send a API put to SEG. I currently have a ISY and Brultech GEM with Zigbee and DASHbox (serial connected to the GEM), The GEM sends the data to my zigbee ISY via the GEM which also has a Zigbee card. The Dashbox in my setup is the unit that actually sends the data to SEG via an "API".

The reason that I stated that anything is possible I also have built a 1 wire bus with DS1820's attached to an Arduino, I route this output from the Arduino to a Raspberry PI and sent it to SEG using the SEG API. See link below.

"Also, assuming this can be done, will I be able to "subtract" that data from the total circuit usage as sent by the GEM, so it is not double counted in my total/curtain usage?" YES

Ahhh, insider knowledge!  :-D

I have current and voltage streams too. I suppose the same goes for them.

Topic: Comments and Suggestions / More costs widgets

I've used calculated streams allright, the problem is there is only 1 widget that shows costs. And it only shows total cost for 1 day. I'm talking about cost stastics over selectable time ranges.

Topic: Getting Started / Sending Zwave/Insteon Plug Monitoring Data?

Hi  I am new here.  I've been looking for a great energy monitoring site and SEG looks/seems great.  I have a few questions before I decide that hardware/configuration to implement...

My HA controller is the Universal Devices ISY.  It is an Insteon based controller, that has recently added Zwaye.  It can also be configured for Zigbee (but not both Zwave and Zigbee at the same time, one or the other).  It is compatible with the Brultech GEM if using Zigbee.

In addition to circuit monitoring, I would like to monitor some individual plugs.  There are both Insteon and Zwave plug adapters that monitor energy use of the individule plug.  There is even a new Zwave power strip that monitors power from each plug in the strip.

My question is, does anyone know if that data can be sent to SEG and if so, how?  I know the ISY and other Insteon/Zwave controllers can track power usage data and transmit that info, but I don’t know anything about how to do it and what form the data needs to be to feed to SEG.  If anyone has information about this it would be very welcome.

Also, assuming this can be done, will I be able to "subtract" that data from the total circuit usage as sent by the GEM, so it is not double counted in my total/curtain usage?

 

Thanks!!

I believe that if you spell out Power and Energy at the end of name field in the stream name box it is not displayed in the widget names. If you just enter a "P" it gets displayed.

 

If you look at my dashboard under "watts on" for the Dryer, it simply says Dryer yet in the stream name I have it entered as Dryer Power

Topic: Comments and Suggestions / Groups of Streams

I thought someone might suggest a calculated Stream but didnt clarify that it doesnt solve the problem.

A calculated stream is still a single stream so no breakdown is given when it's added to a widget.

What I'm suggesting is a group of streams which can be added to a widget. When the widget is displayed it displays like a widget with multiple streams. Not a widget with a single calculated stream.

I wanted to eliminate P & E suffixes but i had to put them in because SEG won't allow the same name for multiple streams even if they have different units.

 

Lineup will be affected based on how many streams are in the widget anyway. So # of lines per stream is no different from that.

Topic: Comments and Suggestions / Realtime charts don't show gaps in data

You are correct that the chart does not show the break, upon looking closely at your chart on your dashboard the x Axis (time/date) actual shows the break in time, between 19:30 to 23:32. I suspect that this chart only graphs data if it has it, which kind of makes sense because it is "real Time" No data means no x Axis nor Y Axis, once data started coming in again it just added it to what it had, key here is "real Time".

Unlike the bunch of days graphs further down in the dashboard which showed the break because I also suspect it uses past data/summed and was expecting 24 hours of data which it didn't find. Hence the gap.

Some of this can be done using calculated stream(s)

 

check my reply to our other post on how to use them.
