Re: Linking a SMART meter to home WiFi

According to the spec:s the unit has an "Optical communications port" which makes me believe that you could intercept the power/water/gas consumption using a pulse counter. See more here on the wiki: https://www.letscontrolit.com/wiki/index.php/TCR5000 Have you managed to get the Pulse Counter devi...

Re: Linking a SMART meter to home WiFi

Hi, Thanks for your swift response. I assume the comms port is situated on the front of the SMART meter and is just a simple infra-red link ?? On a personal note - many years ago I used to run training courses at Ericsson in Stockholm and Gothenburg. Have had great times in Sweden. Cheers from David.

Linking a SMART meter to home WiFi

HI, I've just had a SMART metering system installed at home (i.e. Elster AS300P with home display unit). The LCD home display unit must be receiving signals from the SMART meter in order to display the energy usage. So my question is... has anyone managed to construct a unit to receive these signals...

Re: Trigger an event using Node-Red

Thanks for your responses.

I do already have MQTT running on a Raspberry Pi with Node-Red on another RPi.

I'll try out your answer this evening.

Thanks for all your help/advice.

Trigger an event using Node-Red

Hi to all, I've been playing around with "rules" to trigger an event within ESP8266. Although I can get the rule to trigger by sending the following URL, I can't work out what I should do in Node-Red to achieve the same result. http://192.168.1.31/control?cmd=event,triggerme I've pulled out nearly a...

Re: OpenHAB MQTT option missing

Hi Krikk,
So this means my ESP8266 can only "talk" to ONE OpenHAB MQTT server?

Was there a reason to limit the number to one?

Thanks again for all your help.

Regards, David

Re: OpenHAB MQTT option missing

Hi Krikk,
Thanks for your response - which explains why I couldn't "see" it.

OpenHAB MQTT option missing

Hi to all,
I've just tried updating some of my ESP8266-based nodes to V2.0.0-dev7 and discovered that the OpenHAB MQTT option is missing in the Controllers menu.

I've checked all the versions from V2.0.0-dev4 and they all seem to have OpenHAB missing.

Kind regards from David.

Using Node-Red with ESP Easy

Hi, I'm trying to send text messages to an LCD panel connected to a WeMos D1 R2 via I2C using Node-Red. Although I can use the Command facility in ESP Easy's Tools menu to send text to the LCD, I can't seem to figure out the equivalent syntax for Node-Red. I've tried variations on a theme of... /wem...

Re: Hello from Switzerland

Hi to Luca, I've just joined the forum after discovering ESP Easy - great piece of software/tools. Are you still using Node-Red as that is my current platform (running on a Raspberry Pi) ? I've managed to get a few ESP8266-based nodes (i.e. Witty and WeMos) running with MQTT and Node-Red The one tha...
