I am joining a DYI project in order to leverage on software (instead of physical external sensor) to collect data from a popular Heat Pump here in Itay, Rotex HPSU Compact.
The machine has an undocumented CAN bus available where data flows (both read and write).
First sniff testing are successfully on-going using ELM327 cheap box.
Thinking of a more engineered solution with the goals of:
- publish data on the cloud (emoncms.org is the preferred one)
- changing heat pumo configuration
I am proposing existing multiple options based on Arduino or Raspberry Pi:
Any comments ? Any reccomendation ? Anyone interested in joining the stuff (I am not actually doing the job !) ?
