December's EcoHome Lab: Monthly meetup and skill share

  • to
  • MadLab

    36-40 Edge Street, Manchester (map)

    53.484103 -2.236016

  • For this session we are planning:

    • More with the energy monitors we are building, come and finish it if you haven't or if it is not working we'll try to fix it with you.
    • Will we be able this time to make some dashboards?
    • Tom will show-and-tell on Expressif's new ESP chip which comes with both bluetooth and wifi support and makes use of a dual core μP
    • Of course there will be time for some ranting in the pub after all our hard thinking/working


    Now in our regular monthly slot - every second Thursday of the month at MadLab. 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.

    This is a CarbonCo-op initiative working close together with OpenEnergyMonitor.

    Topics will include:

    • Home energy monitoring.

    • House energy performance assessment

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

    • User interfaces, dashboards

    • Smart houses and automation

    • Aggregation of data sources

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

    Who is it for?

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

    • 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.

Join or login to comment.

    I built an energy monitor a long time a go, but since moving house it's a confusing tangle of wires and I'm not sure what I need to do to get it up and running again - both wire and PI wise. It'd be good to go through it with someone if possible.
