Energy Monitor and historical data
« on: October 15, 2017, 12:14:15 pm »
Hi all, 
I'm going to buy a zwave system based on:
- Vera plus gateway
- Aeon energy meter (one clamp)
- some additional devices: mainly smart plugs (fibaro), radiator thermostats (danfoss), ...

Some of these devices can generate historical data (energy consumptions  from clamps and smart plugs).
My question: where are these historical data stored? In Vera plus memory? In.an external device?

I'm not aware of any internal history stored on these devices, but it may be there.  However, it is relatively easy to collect the data yourself.  I'm using DataYours with AltUI (see http://forum.micasaverde.com/index.php?topic=35966.0).  With this you can put the data on any server you like.  I've got it on a Raspberry Pi.  Data Mine is also a reasonable choice and can store to a USB drive connected to your Vera (see http://forum.micasaverde.com/index.php?topic=35724.0).

I'm also running InfluxDB as a storage provider.  In both cases I use Grafana to generate the graphs and view the data.  See www.grafana.com.

Lots of possibilities.  I started with Data Mine and am now gradually moving to InfluxDB and Grafana for most of my usage.

Emoncms is another option, which probably has a lower level of difficulty to set up.

There are some threads on the board about it, just search. Based on what was posted here I wrote a blog about it which might be helpful.

The AltUI plugin already has interfaces set up for thingspeak and emoncms, so that makes it very easy indeed.
3x Vera Lite-UI5/Edge-UI7, 25x Fibaro, 23x TKB, 9x MiniMote, 2x NorthQ Power, 2x Netatmo, 1x Foscam FI9831P.
