Need tutorial on outputs: usage & creation


#1

Can someone provide a pointer to a tutorial on IoTaWatt outputs? Specifically on how and why one would use them and then how would one be created.

Thanks, Mike

That’s covered in the wiki https://github.com/boblemaire/IoTaWatt/wiki/Configuring-Output-Channels

Thanks, I had lost the link to the community page.

Well its sort of covered, its missing what you do with them. I created a few but they don’t upload to EmonCMS so I guess they are only local?

Actually, all of the data sent to EmonCMS is specified as IoTaWatt outputs. Initially, they default to the values of the corresponding inputs, but you can edit them with the same calculator script interface in the EmonCMS configuration section.
