Topic: Brultech / Moving data from old device

Hello Shawn,

That is interesting and must be something Sam has done since he has done several upgrades to the SEG. I would reach out to him and ask that he assist you in merging the data between the two sites / streams.

When I was performing the transition what I stated to you had to be done in the past.

Topic: Brultech / Moving data from old device

Teken,

 

Just checked it out and it is already linked to the same site.  The old device data doesn't show up as linked though.  Is the link supposed to combine data for each of the devices or is it supposed to be able to link device streams?  It sounds like you didn't have any problems from your earlier post.

Topic: Brultech / Data not appearing on plot (and elsewhere)

I've got a stream that was recording fine, but now I'm unable to see days worth of data.  It's not a calculated stream, but on the Plot/Edit page it says "calculating right now" and no data appears in the plot.  When I check the raw data page, I see data for the last couple of days (but not earlier than that).  I last checked this stream in early November and saw all the raw data fine.  FYI, it's titled "Garage Panel 1 Energy", token: 12c0bdcb1616262.  All the other streams on the same device seem fine.

Hello Shawn,

When you're in the *Device* tab you should see two devices. The newer Dash Box stream is the one you're supposed to edit. Select the Dash Box, once it opens the new stream on the right hand side is a the pencil icon to make edits.

Midway down you should see an option to make the transfer of data.

Topic: Brultech / Moving data from old device

I'm using the same SEG account and site for both devices.  Under My Things - My Devices it shows both devices (Old Gem) and Dashbox are on the same site.  I can't see that both Devices can be linked under the Edit option.  

 

Let me know if I'm still missing something.

Hello Shawn,

Under the new SEG account (lets call it the dash box) you will have the ability to *LINK* an existing (GEM) account to the Dash Box.

My Things -> Select Edit Site (top right pencil icon) there will be an option to link another site to another.

Linkable Sites:

Ok, when I setup the DB a month of so ago I did just as you described and entered in the token ID from the GEM.  If memory serves me correctly it never reconnected and I had to hit the discover button.  When this was done it created the new device.

I connected them both via serial port in the end

Hello Shawn,

My apologies I was in Moderator mode and grabbed the hyper link in that view instead of the public view.

I just tried the link and for some reason it isn't working or the Brultech forum doesn't like it...what is the topic name and I can search the forum that way.

 

Thanks.

Yes.  I haven't had a chance to look at the forum link yet so will look at it and see exactly what you describe.

Shawn,

Just to be clear, you want to be able to see old data that is integrated into just one SEG account, correct?

If that is the case my method does that.

No problem.  I was just hoping to be able to only look at one channel string and see all data vs. requiring swithing between devices.

Topic: Brultech / Moving data from old device

Hello Shawn,

Sorry I misunderstood your intent but the premise is still the same. Essentially, all I did was send new data to the *existing / old* SEG account. I did not try to move the data from the old site to the newly created site on SEG.

At the end of the day what I did has the same results of preserving existing old data that receives new energy data from the Dash Box.

Topic: Brultech / Moving data from old device

Teken,

 

I might not have made my first post clear enough.  Previously I was fowarding data directly from my GEM since the first of 2014 and not storing any data locally.  A couple months ago I started to look at the data more closely and compare against the limited smart meter data available from my utility.  What I ended up finding was that I was losing packets at some points in the day.  Not sure why as the WiFi connection was stable but losing data nonetheless.

 

I decided to install a Dashbox so that the data could be stored locally before being fowarded to SEG as I find SEG a little easier to use when looking at high-level data.  The installation of the Dashbox went easily and once I configured to foward data it created a new device instead of being recognized as the same device.  All of the channels from the GEM matched up but with this new device(Dashbox), all data (even though not complete) was not tied or connected to the new device for historical purposes.  The data for the fowarded GEM still shows up but as another device that is not connected.  

 

I was hoping there was some easy way to "connect" or transfer the old device data short of downloading all of the channel data for the old device from SEG and reloading it into the correct channels.

Topic: Brultech / Moving data from old device

Hello,

Essentially, you're going to perform a rediscovery of all the channels. Since the Dash Box (DB) has taken over the role of forwarding the energy packets to the SEG site. There may be one or two steps in my install thread that do not corrolate exactly.

Specifically, there is one portion where it indicates changing a value from (guessing here) 0.000027, to a value of 1.

In later releases of the Dash Box and GEM all the required data points were corrected and configured properly. As you will learn the install thread was crafted very early on when all the systems were new and lots of the things I had to do was trial and test.

So please keep that in mind as this was posted several years ago and many aspects have been stream lined and improved to better assist new DB / GEM owners to avoid a lot of the set up frustrations and pain in getting the two services up and running.

Teken,

 

You'd be correct in that assumption.  I'll take a look at the link provided and let you know if I have any questions.

 

Thanks again.

Hello Mark,

There are no after market options for the etherbee unit. That device is custom made for Brultech so thats it.

Shipping: Now you know how we all feel in Canada every day! The USA has bar none the best shipping rates in various options such as the flat rate shipping box's. 

Please keep in mind the high shipping fee's are not Brultechs fault as they are a Canada Post gouging issue.

Hello,

Are you the same member at the Brultech forum called shern? Assuming you have a Dash Box and this is what you're referencing to. The basic information in my installation thread located here will provide some insight as to what to do.

You will need to scroll down about 1/4 of the page located here: http://www.brultech.com/community/mcp.php?i=main&mode=post_details&f=2&p=4636&sid=8b5a309d0d9b737982f14a327415da08
