Definitely a use case that’s been discussed a few times, in addition to new products like Chai Energy (and others) that attempt to deduce device usage via artificial intelligence using a single whole home monitor.
For one sample way to collect outlet power data now, consider giving InitialState a try.
Yes, as mentioned above groovestream, initialstate, IFTTT, and I’ll through in SAMI will all do that. There is a search button in the upper right hand corner that will give you details on each possible solution.
I appreciate all of your replies, however currently i’m suffering the burden of being a UK resident… which restricts me somewhat, being that all of the above requires something that is either broken for us or not around over here yet,
being a uk resident has it perks too, just not with SmartThings right now. @deano12, you know the uk has oauth issues… If you had put in your original post that you were in the UK, or were looking to do tracking w/o using oauth you would of gotten completely different responses, as right now there is not a way to do this.
I can tell you when oauth is fixed, I’d highly recommend SAMI, because its the only option that allows you to overlay multiple data points on top of each other at the same time, and that sounds like what you are looking for.
