I finally got around to adding the Aeon Labs Smart Power Meter to my system. I get a very basic “thing” that updates a snapshot of my power consumption every 8 minutes. I am now thinking of ways to make it more useful. Two questions for the folks on the thread:
- Has anyone already started to write any smart apps for that device. If so, what types of things are you doing (and would you be willing to share code)?
- Does anyone know if you can export the activity log? Because it reports every 8 minutes, you have a pretty good running tally of energy usage in the logs. I was thinking if you could export it, you could make some pretty interesting graphs of consumption over time.
