  • We send a constant value down to the CAD, in theory it can change with area you are in, time of day, etc. I don't think we are updating it often. Right now it is: Natural gas has a conversion factor of about 0.185, e.g. 1,000 kWh of gas used is resp…
  • Hi Ken - I don't think we explicitly show meter time. We technically can if the CAD is used, but I think we are typically using NTP from the CAD and Zigbee (HAN) time from the meter. If no time can be found, then we use time supplied by our servers.…
  • Hi, There was a consent renewal message that went out yesterday, I don't think it should have had an impact - but otherwise no system wide issues. If you are having issues it may just be a temporary signal issue or something local. I would say if it…
  • Yeah - not local MQTT for the stick. You have to use our broker and subscribe. If you put an email into support they can enable MQTT and you will get 10 second data. Being Saturday it will take a couple of days for it to get enabled - sorry we are …
  • Hi Mrg9999, There isn't a handbook per se. We do firmware updates and enhancements, so we opted to make the menus straight forward and hopefully will be easy to use. Power - don't use batteries. They are there for the prepayment functions in case of…
  • Jane told me today that we use the calorific value from the MPRN on the Glow service and it is fixed on the meter at 40 (or maybe 39.5) - so I think you are basically correct. There should be volume in the MQTT stream too - so you could DIY the kWh.
  • Still working on it ... MQTT took first priority.
  • Thanks Andy. Nice to see it working well for you.
  • Thanks guys -- great to see it being useful.
  • From Wikipedia ... Coordinated Universal Time (UTC)[edit] If the time is in UTC, add a Z directly after the time without a space. Z is the zone designator for the zero UTC offset. "09:30 UTC" is therefore represented as "09:30Z" …
  • We have to release a new version of the GlowStick before it would be available. The current GlowStick will not support MQTT. It is a while off before we would have that new hardware available.
  • The data is timestamped UTC, following the SMETS standard. It is controlled by a combination of the electricity/gas meter and how we interact with the CAD. I'll defer to more technical colleagues, but I think that may be a is what it is type thing. …
  • Hi - wondering if you have any "special" characters in either the username or password. Not sure if we have tested support for double byte, etc. If it is a straightfoward username/password, I'm wondering ...
  • Hi Simon, Tariff information is the the main API rather than MQTT. You can apply the rates (although you may be applying kWh rates to kW - so just a warning that "instant cost" can be useful but possibly not meaningful), etc. If there is a…
  • Hi Chris - we do have a the ability to support this. And we do it for Agile tariff. There is a tool being put together to help author the screens as it is slightly hard to do by hand and get it right. Then also we will have to do this securely as no…
  • Unfortunately we don't get too many of the detailed metrics out of the meters, however there are more there for sure. I'll get it folded into the developer's requirements stack and see what time table we might be able to have a look at those - or at…
  • Awesome feedback all -- "organic" APIs are not the way to go I can tell you! I think we are going to need to do a bit of a revamp to get everything in good shape. Some of the balance has been between single site and multisite (or multi-me…
  • Proof of concept went pretty well with the team. There are some performance issues to solve but looks like the memory concerns we had can be managed. I'm hoping more POC next week and then release to some beta folks. I know you guys on the forum m…
  • Cool - great to see people using MQTT!
  • I've taken a Pipit to pieces - wonder if I can figure out what it might be. I know they use a resistive touch element - so could be a calibration thing. I really like the Liberty 100, I think it is packed with features and is easy to operate. All k…
  • We were talking about it in the team meeting this morning - looks like we are going to have a nice surprise in store there! You'll need to be connected to the Internet to have the log in doing anything, but should be a cool feature in the coming da…
  • Good pick up - being released in the next release in a few days. Thanks for the eagle eyes!
  • Welcome to the forum! I am excited someone has started to use the functionality - fantastic. Looks like our login supports some "hidden" functions for being able to log in to different environments. So hopefully all of the other RFC5322 c…
