Hi, I’ve just installed my system the week between Christmas and New Year, and it seems to be working well.
I’m now looking to do a couple of things, and I can’t seem to find anything in the docs, and a search doesn’t bring anything up. It may be that it can’t/shouldn’t be done, but if it can, could someone point me in the direction of the docs please, as I can’t find them.
The first thing I’d like to do is to add some historical data. As I mentioned, I’ve basically just had the system installed since the start of the year, so I don’t have much historical data yet. I can download my power usage from my utility company for the last 13 months on an hour by hour basis. Is there any way that I can import this into the system? I know I’m going to have to just divide it in 2 for each of the legs, so it’s not going to be super accurate, but it’s probably good enough to add some historical context.
The other thing I’m looking to do, is to make use of some of the info I’m getting from my home automation setup. I have a CT on one of the circuits, which in the style of this house, does half the basement (where my computers are), the back room, and the dining room. My home automation keeps track of several of the devices on this circuit, and I’m wondering if I can feed in the data from those devices (and keep better track of them there), and then use the derivations to sum the devices I’m monitoring and subtract that from the CT logged values to give me a figure for the unmonitored portion?
Can I do this with Iotawatt? If I can, is it the best way to do it? And if not, what is?
Thanks for any help and pointers.
