sorry,i don´t write all post

Dear All,

    I am doing a final year project and would like to use linuxmce to    control z-wave devices.

    Specifically I would like to monitor electricity consumption with    the

    a.) Everspring      Switch Meter Plugin (AN158-2)    ,
    b.) and with the Aeon Labs Home Energy Meter (two clamps,     .

    The problem is that I am a total newbe to LinuxMCE with its huge    wealth on configuration options.

    1.) I would like to know if support for the two devices named above    is already implemented in lmce 0810 and if yes, if there is any    manual/step-by-step guide how to configure/use them.

    2.) If support is not implemented, do you have any guidance on how I    could implement them myself?

    I will have to finish my project in two months from now and any help    would be greatly appreciated.

    Greetings,

    Juan Carlos

Dear All,

the two devices Juan Carlos mentioned seem interesting (low price and available from many online-shops). However for a newbie in LMCE I don’t find it is straight forward to hook them up properly in LMCE and second to monitor and display consumption. I was checking a bit in the forum and found the following threats interesting:

forum.linuxmce.org/index.php/topic,10480.0.html
forum.linuxmce.org/index.php/topic,11311.0.html
forum.linuxmce.org/index.php/topic,10158.0.html
forum.linuxmce.org/index.php/topic,11893.0.html
forum.linuxmce.org/index.php/topic,11674.0.html

Nevertheless, non of them is detailed enough to get me going. I have LMCE 810 final release, an Aeon labs stick S2, the Aeon Labs Home Energy Meter (two clamps), and the Everspring Switch Meter Plugin (AN158-2).

Tim, I saw that you where talking about a template for the Aeon Labs Home Energy Meter you where working on some time ago. Is it included in the final release of 810? Which number does it have?

I see, there is a lot of interest in energy monitoring and it would be great if someone could write (or point to) a little step by step guide, including:

1.) how to properly include the energy monitoring devices.
2.) how to configure and pair them up.
3.) how to display basic consumption data.

Greetings and thanks for your time,

Lars
