I would like to add gas and water meters to check consumption.  Since I am in the part of the world that still uses the non-metric system I would like to see the units in gallons for water and cubic feet for gas.  My house uses propane, which is sold in gallons (of liquid), but the meter I am likely to get measures in cubic feet (of gas).

 

I expect to be able to measure gallons with 1/10 or 1/100 resolution.  Cubic feet might be in 1/2 or 1/4 resolution.

 

Since I am asking, seeing temp in degrees F would be nice too.

 

Thanks

A bunch of new stream types have just been added that should cover off these units!

Let me know if there are any issues you find.

Thanks!

Sam.

I just added a gas meter to my GreenEye.  It provides one pulse per cubic foot of propane.  The output counter is total cubic feet, and monotonically increases.  I would like to record the total, but view the derivative - ie cubic feet per hour in my graphs.  So far I haven't found a way to do that....

Hey Denny,

Not at the moment.  Best way is to make sure your data is pre-processed to do that math on your end.

Sam, @samotage
