I purchased my emonPi in 2017 and set it up and it worked great.
Then I stopped using it, and this month I started to try to use it again, and did a software update which failed, so I have used a new 16GB micro sd card and flashed the June 2020 image, and I am back up and running again.
The local emonpi works perfect, but I cannot get the Emoncms.org to work
Is there a newbie guide to getting it synced to the emonpi local ?
I have chosen to start a fresh and not look for any backup or old data. So I have the new feed setup on the local emonpi but cannot get it to show live readings in the Emoncms.org
As most seem to use emoncms.org as a backup/sharing mechanism (though that’s only the impression I get from the forums, you must have a better idea from server use and the number of accounts vs. sales of emonPi’s & ESP’s), I don’t see waiting a minute as being a big problem.
Again, this comes down to documentation. If the user knows what it does, and the implications of various values, they can make an informed decision. Without it, they’ll leave the default in place, because they don’t know any better.
All interfacers inherit a “interval” setting, adding a “sendinterval” is duplicating code and is actually the cause of the confusion. Trystan didn’t know there was already an “interval” in emonhub and documented when he added a sendinterval. The result was some users were using “interval” and others were using “sendinterval” because various docs and config files showed either. He then fixed that by removing the then recently added “sendinterval” again, reverting to the established “interval”. This new very recent re emerging confusion is probably due to a minor typo or copy/paste from outdated examples/docs etc.
Hi I’ve recently start setting up my home monitoring system with emoncms. Locally I have a pi4b running the latest emoncms connected to one of Robin Emleys 3 phase PCBs, logging successfully over a serial link using emonhub.
Today I set up an emoncms.org account and am having difficulty setting up the sync connection.
I point the url to emoncms.org, enter my user credentials for my .org account and hit connect, my local pi replies with authentication failure from my local ip address.
I’ve just tried it, and it works for me. Do you have any “special” characters in your user name or password? These have been known to cause problems in the past.
“Works for me” means it accepts data - but only insofar as replicating what emonhub does with ``senddata = 1" with your read-write APIKey. The note on the sync page says " Note: Data upload is not yet enabled on emoncms.org." - I presume this relates to Feed data, not live data.
Thanks for the reply. I’m not sure how to link images, but here goes if it fails I’ll have another go.
“emonpi” in the authentication fail box is my local Pi running from the downloaded SD image. I’ve run the Full Update from the admin page.
The message seems to suggest that the Sync config script is ignoring the first Host field and trying for connect to itself. BTW I blanked my username for the post!
I’m also having trouble with the “Find Local Devices” on my .org account it just shows a page saying “Getting your ip - Searching” and gets no further.
Do you think this maybe both these could be linked to a firewall issue?
in my emonhub setting I use the “write” APIkey from my .org account page was that correct?
