Thinking of Getting “The Energy Detective”

largeTED1001

I am doing some renovation work at my house and especially on the electric grid.  From what I have read The Energy Detective is an easy-to-use, accurate electricity monitor that can supposedly can help me save 10% to 20% (or more) on my families energy bill.  From some photos and readings the device provides immediate feedback on your energy usage so you can determine where and when to reduce your electricity consumption to save money and the environment.

What I am interested is is how it integrates with its data-logging software, called Footprints and Google’s Power Meter….

So first install and second get my mad scientist friends over at the Heights Technocracy to build some cool apps….

I am very curious about the following.

The URL to access the live data: http://gatewayip/api/LiveData.xml (where “gatewayip” is the IP address or the device name)

To pull the History data:
/history/minutehistory.xml?MTU=0 (history for MTU 1. It is a zero-based index of MTU’s)

/history/hourlyhistory.xml?MTU=0 (history for MTU 1. It is a zero-based index of MTU’s)

/history/dailyhistory.xml?MTU=0 (history for MTU 1. It is a zero-based index of MTU’s)

/history/monthlyhistory.xml?MTU=0 (history for MTU 1. It is a zero-based index of MTU’s)
