I am reading my IotaWatt with an Intel NUC. atm, I have a Tp-Link WR841N set up as an AP (correct model #). I have yet to work out how to lock the IotaWatt IP address, but it seems consistently to come up on the same IP.
Anyway, this got me thinking: I should be able to set up my NUC as a wifi interface reading the Iotawatt directly, then the NUC is on the network via Ethernet. The NUC is running Lubuntu, current version, as well as of course being the Emoncms server. (Bit of mucking around getting Emoncms to load properly on the latest lubuntu, but by setting a pi user up on install, & installing Python2 first, it installed OK)
So, my aim is to read the Iotawatt over the wifi interface, linking the data to Emoncms, with the ethernet to connect to Emoncms for review/maintenance.
Has anyone achieved something similar? Looking for help if anyone has experience achieving a similar Linux task (such as with a rpi).
(I want to remove the TP-Link, so saving a security risk & a few watts!)
