Topic: SEGmeter / Aggregations stopped working?

Hey All,

There have been a bunch of big updates, and some issues seem to be in play.  I have an idea what they are and working on resolving them.

I will likely kick of a re-agg for the last two weeks for all streams when done.

Thanks for your patience!

Sam, @samotage

Topic: SEGmeter / Aggregations stopped working?

I was seeing the raw data logged to SEG every 50 secs for wh, but the charts that show kwh at 30 min and daily intervals had not been showing anything since last Saturday (4 days ago). So the raw data is being captured as expected, but I suspect the aggregation job that produces the daily and 30 min summaries had stopped for some reason.

Aggregations now seem to have updated, but I'm now offline (different issue I haven't resolved yet).

Topic: SEGmeter / Aggregations stopped working?

yeah - reporting has been real spotty for me as well.

I thought it was my system, but it appears that Sam is doing some heavy lifting on the server or ??

I kept rebooting my system, but after every reboot I only get 5 46 sec apart data points from my segmeter streams and then nothing unless I reboot again.

The segboxvtwo keeps reporting every 30minutes, so not sure where the issue(s) lie...

 

What are your specific symptoms?

It appears in "Chrome, IE version 10 and Safari". I also verified that it is present in ie11.

Topic: SEGmeter / Aggregations stopped working?

Hi Sam,

 

My aggregations seem to have stopped a few days ago. If I check the raw plots the data is there. No-one else seems to have reported this, so maybe it is just me.

 

Can you please check and re-enable the aggregations on my power streams?

 

Thanks,

 

Grant

Topic: The Open Grid / Posting kWH to the API

Gotcha.  Ok, can you explain why when I send in power as kWh the computations are correct for cost in the dashboards, but if you look at the realtime graph for kWh, it's not right?

https://smartenergygroups.com/widgets/c4c0818037f5c2be2fbadf21f9c0a79b288ce05c

So my issue would be if I go back and multiply my data by 1000 so I'm uploading Wh to SEG, the kWh graphs are correct, but cost calcuations are through the roof. Notice my energy usage just keeps growing  I'd expect it to show me use vs the amount since I reset my device  

Thanks!
Brian

Topic: The Open Grid / Posting kWH to the API

Hey Brian,

Send you data in as Wh consumed for the time period in question.  Then set the prefix of your stream to kWh, which will make all good in the world :D

Topic: The Open Grid / Posting kWH to the API

Can someone please tell me the proper settings for posting kWH to the API? My device reports total kWH from whenever I last reset it, so I'm *assuming* that SEG will calculate based on the data points that it receives (i.e. if I my device sends 5kWh at 1am and then 25kWh at midnight, then SEG knows I've used 20kWh).  

So should I select type of data for my stream to be Energy, Wh and then add a calibration of 1000.0 since SEG is expecting Wh data instead of kWh? I've tried this and my cost widgets are off the charts!

Is there some other setting I should change in my stream so that the kWh calculations are done correctly? 

Thanks,

Brian

Topic: Comments and Suggestions / RFE: track/graph minimums over time

Ok, that works fairly well, but I wish I could turn off max/avg/std-dev like you can turn off other streams on multi-stream graphs, because it kind of swamps out the changes in min.  I realize that may not be part of the graphing library (but maybe?)  Turning off everything but min & auto-scaling would be sweet.

Oh, hum, let me try that.  Sometimes I forget about the widgets I don't look at every day.  I'll let you know, thanks!

Topic: Comments and Suggestions / RFE: track/graph minimums over time

Hey Eric,

Nice to hear from you!

Have you tried the min, max and averages?  This is a candlestick that shows what you are looking for and a standard deviation spread about the average.  :D

Suggestions are power on the candlesticks and then energy on the secondary plot.  SEG will also go and calculate all the statistics if they aren't already calculating.

Thanks!

Topic: Comments and Suggestions / RFE: track/graph minimums over time

I'd really love to be able to track how minimum power for a channel evolves over time.   I know I could download a huge dataset and parse it myself, but it'd be cool if either:

1) We could graph a channel's 24-houror weekly or monthly-minimum over time, or

2) We could use the data downloader to download a dataset which contains only 24-hour or weekly or monthly minimums.

I ask because I've come to realize that my "mains" minimum - recently at 180W - is a giant portion of my electric bill.  I'll go around (again) and try to figure out where that's all going, but it's also risen in recent months, and I'd love to pinpoint when it happened.

Thanks!

-Eric

Topic: Brultech / Link for sensors

You can now pick up Neptune R900 RF transmissions with the rtlamr project; I'm sending that data to SEG.

Topic: The Open Grid / Water consumption

The rtlamr project can now read Neptune r900 water meters via RF, and I'm using that to upload water usage to SEG.  Pretty cool!

I've found that different types of meters update at different rates, despite the product docs saying every 15 mins.  Mine seems to update values every 15 mins (so I upload every 15 mins) but others in the neighborhood seem to update every 12.5 minutes...

Topic: SEGmeter / Calibration?

Aloha - did you ever determine the best way to calibrate the AC sensors?

I get readings above zero when I open circuit some of my stuff.

What is the best/easiest way to permenently change the zero offset?

Topic: Getting Started / API - wH vs kWh and dashboard inconsistancies

Hi, I've written a SmartApp for use with SmartThings to get energy meter data into SEG (https://github.com/bdwilson/SEG-Logger), however I seem to be running into an issue.

I've got two meters at my house, both report watts and kWh (kWh being the amount used since last reset - I can reset this on demand).  I've successfully sent this data using the above app to the API.   Now is when the problems begin.

If I look at the two devices on SEG, the raw data shows kWh (lets use 53.02 for this example). I know SEG does Wh, so I've tried both using the calibration option to multiply the data by 1000 (giving me 5302.00) and pre-multiplying the data before i send it to SEG .  I also check the "kilo" option.  Whenever I do this, the data appears correct when I click on sites and see my two panels and their kWh listed.  However, when I add anything into the Dashboard, it appears the data is way off (maybe by a factor of 1000?).   If I leave the data in the data in it's original kWh format (again, 53.02), the sites page shows "0.05kWh" (wrong) but the dashboard data appears correct.

So I guess I'm looking for advice on the proper way to format the data, options to check, for an energy device panel that is outputting kWh data.
