Let me know if I’m on my own wanting to roll out something not directly supported here, that’s ok.
I’ve got an exciting home assistant solution running for my home automation which has already got a bunch of other sensors that are then pushed out to influxdb.
I’m keen to measure my whole home instantaneous power usage to get a better understanding of my usage and so looking at different hardware solutions. What would I need to get a basic clamp reading pushing through to mqtt or home assistant directly? Could I use the Arduino shield easily for this purpose?
I’m comfortable with software but not completely sure I follow on the hardware so a ready made shield I could slap onto something would be awesome. Is there any gotchas I should know before going ahead?
