Recently I started an Internet of Things series on my experiences installing, using and analysing data from a smart electrical meter. This included a BC Hydro smart meter, Eagle monitoring gateway from rainforest automation, and a cloud-based analytics service from Bidgely.
I’ve collated all the posts on the topic for you below. More will be added as I write them. Enjoy!
After a week of collecting smart meter readings, I’m now ready to show results in a cloud-based energy monitor system – Bidgely – complete with graphs showing readings, cost and machine learning results breaking down my usage by appliance.
This is part 4 of a series of posts about the Internet of Things applied to Home Energy Monitoring. I have a Smart Meter from BC Hydro, an Eagle energy monitor and various cloud apps helping me understand it all.
Energy monitoring isn’t only about knowing what’s happening right now, but also understanding what happened historically. Often that includes knowing not just what was happening but also when and why. Enter cloud services for energy monitoring. They range from simple charts and graphs to predicting your usage over time – essentially storing, analysing and enriching your raw data.
In this post I review two cloud services that I’ve tried so far and show you what you get from them. Continue reading IoT Day 2: Cloud Services for Energy Monitoring
Between classic business transactions and social interactions and machine-generated observations, the digital data tap has been turned on and it will never be turned off. The flow of data is everlasting. Which is why you see a lot of things in the loop around real time frameworks and streaming frameworks. – Mike Hoskins, CTO Actian
From Mike Hoskins to Mike Richards (yes we can do that kind of leap in logic, it’s the weekend)…
Oh, Joel Miller, you just found the marble in the oatmeal! You’re a lucky, lucky, lucky little boy – because you know why? You get to drink from… the firehose! Okay, ready? Open wide! – Stanley Spadowski, UHF
Firehose of Terror
I think you get the picture – a potentially frightening picture for those unprepared to handle the torrent of data that is coming down the pipe. Unfortunately, for those who are unprepared, the disaster will not merely overwhelm them. Quite the contrary – I believe they will be consumed by irrelevancy.
