EcoHome Lab: From Monitoring to Control (OpenHAB & HomeAssist)

  • Aug 11, 2016 · 5:30 PM

From monitoring to control and intervention - an introduction to OpenHAB, NodeRED and how to control your home.

As well as realtime monitoring, the emonPi offers an always-on server, providing the potential to manage and control devices around the home. Glyn Hudson, co-founder of the OpenEnergyMonitor project, has been exploring how live energy monitoring data from the emonPi can easily be used to inform home automation systems such as OpenHAB, LightWaveRF and HomeAssistant.

In this session, Glyn will give a brief overview on what's been achieved so far as well as an introduction to the open-source home automation tools that are now integrated into the EmonPi's default installation.

EcoHome Lab is a hangout for people taking control of their home energy usage and generation. We use open-source hardware and software to gain a better understanding  of energy in our homes, how to make the best use of the energy we generate and reduce energy wasted.

Each month we'll expand on our understanding and continue to integrate the open source energy monitoring and whole house energy assessment tools in to different areas of Carbon Co-op's development.

Topics will include:

• Home energy monitoring and developing an open source whole house energy assessment method + carrying out your own home energy assessment.

• Sensors - electricity, gas, temperature, humidity, air quality.

• User interfaces - your smart home on your smart phone

• Integrating Open Data sources

• Taking the power back! - Making better use of the surplus power we generate

• Energy system & Heating control

Who is it for?

- Anyone using OpenEnergyMonitor kit: come and get help making it work better for you or share your knowledge or showcase your project.

- Anyone with skills in physical electronics, web development, interface design or programming who wants to use that knowledge to reduce energy and carbon!

- Anyone! There will be open space for small groups to focus on adding new sensors or hacking the user interface, there will always be a 'newbies' group for people interested in finding out more.

    Hi all. A friend/colleague of mine has ordered a batch (50, I believe) of the ESP32! They should arrive mid-October. We're looking to use some ourselves for projects but quite a few should be available, prettymuch -at cost- ... to lovely peeps like you :) .... I'll be at the MeetUp tomorrow.

      Hi, I'm just back from my holidays. Pity you cannot do this building session but understandable. The plan for October's one will be troubleshooting and setup of dashboards to visualize what the monitors are measuring, so i think you could work in your energy monitor in October. Anyway lets keep in contact before it and organize it. About membership, I emailed you ages ago and thought I had sorted it, I'll check it now and will be in touch. All the best
