First time user, received emonTx4 with the voltage sense plug thing. CT’s are attached, emonTx4 is on the wifi, in the web interface I can see power readings coming through.
Now I would like to be able to see some graphs, I have made an account on emoncms.
The next bits I guessed, I got a read and write api key from my account and pasted it into the emonTx4, it says its connected.
I then had to leave the site, and hoped it would just send everything to emoncms and I could set it up later… Now its later and I don’t know what to do…
Any help for a newbe…
Coming through to where? the remote emoncms (
emoncms.org) or your local emoncms? They are completely independent.
It sounds like you need to log Input to Feeds to start recording data, see: emonCMS: Getting started emonPi/Base — OpenEnergyMonitor 0.0.1 documentation
The process is the same for local or remote emoncms.
local, when the auto launch wifi menu pops up I can see the data there, live readouts, but nothing shows on a graph, emoncms only has one or two inputs available
ill go back to the site and see if I can do something to get the inputs to show up, hopefully then they will push to emoncms automatically
Read through this page especially this section emonCMS: Getting started emonPi/Base — OpenEnergyMonitor 0.0.1 documentation
Inputs is just data being received. You then need to log it to a Feed - that is then the storage of the data.
Which site - still your Local emoncms?
thanks for the info chaps, ive worked it out, I was close but some glitch stopped it working, deleted the inputs and then put the read write key back into the local emonTx4 and it started pushing.
Its a case of first timer working out all the setup glitches.
Next problem, is I left it logging, and it worked for two hours and then stopped.
So ill go back again tomorrow to try and see whats up
