How to retrieve a kWh/d feed via the API

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007f8de1495bf8> #<Tag:0x00007f8de1495ae0>

Hi,
I have a feed where I record the cost of electricity based on purchased power multiplied by the current electric cost, and then saved to a kWh/d feed.

I can see how to get the current value of the feed (https://emoncms.org/feed/value.json?id=*****), but I would like to get hold of the feed value for yesterday.
Is there a way to do that with the API?

TIA

Hello @Tim_Meadows You can use the feed/data API for this, see the examples here: https://emoncms.org/site/api#feed

You need to specify a time range over which to request data points in milliseconds, One way to get a pre-prepared api request example is to load a graph using your browser and then use the developer tools > network tool to see the requests, you will notice feed/data requests that you can copy and adapt as needed.

Hi @TrystanLea,

Thanks, I had tried some variations with the API but was never successful with a result.
I hadn’t thought of using the developer tools, so I’ll give that a try.
