Yes. All very easy and works as intended except the light sensor is a threshold not continuous sensor. I have some new light sensors on a table to install.

Basically they are perfect and cheap. I just need to get the enclosures sorted.

I have 7 or 8 operating in the house now.

Cheers N

Which light sensor did you have and what did you replace it with?

Great, I'm building the same multisensor too, but thankfully ordered the TEMT6000. Is your Grafana pulling from Home Assistant ?

Yes. Homeassistant saving to influxdb and Grafana pulling from influxdb directly

Just wondering how you are pulling your "Household energy consumption"? The plots look good!

That's not quite standard. I have a CurrentCost (clamp power meter) connected to the odroid C2 running Homeassistant (and the database)... I wrote a small python script to pick up and parse the serial output and store it directly into the database. (And from there it's trivial to display with Grafana)... It clamps on the main feed to the house. After a couple of months I'll be able to compare it's numbers to the usage I am actually billed for and if there's a difference I can add a scaling factor into the python code to correct.

 

Cheers - N

OK thanks, thats interesting. Do you know a NZ supplier for the CurrentCost, or did you import (or get it from a supplier that no longer has a website)?

I can't remember where I got it from. I have had it for ages! Sorry.

Actually, a search of my email shows I bought it in 2010 from http://www.smartnow.com.au/

I see your ping has massive spikes in it. That must give you really low bars on call of duty. Definitely looks like you are being throttled by your ISP. I would start a thread and complain about it!

Seriosuly though, great thread. Never realised there was a decent DIY multisensor option.

Thought I would give HA a try as I had a rasp pi 3 sitting in a box. Loaded a 2GB SD with etcher and started the pi. It seems to be sort of working but there is a DNS issue stopping me from accessing it via a browser with http://hassio.;local:8123

 

I can see it on my network with address 192.168.20.27 and it knows it is a rasp pi called hassio. I can ping it by IP addr but not by name.

 

Any ideas? The instructions I followed didn't cover this behaviour!

No idea sorry... My idea of Name resolution is remembering the IP address :-)

 

 

 

Plus I am using an Odroid C2 with Ubuntu...

Try accessing http://192.168.20.27:8123, also the first time setup takes about 20-30mins. So the web interface wont be ready until this completes.
