Does anyone has any experience reading out this old actaris watermeter using 1Wire (Raspberry PI) or RFXmeter?

Use a crt5000 reflection sensor to detect one of the rotating red dials. And a 10-bit ADC-to-I2C converter to read the values into the rPI a few 100 times a second.

Or, use an old Webcam and openCV to read the meter, but then you need a stable light source and more code to do the image analysis..

I have used a crt5000 and http://floris.cc/shop/en/breakout-board ... ifier.html

I really new at domotica. I finally can read my energy and gas meter through a P1-cable connected to my Pi and see the data in domoticz which I backup every data into SQL server light.
Now I try to read my watermeter from actaris but i have no idea where to start

I read i can use a TCRT5000 IR Barrier Line Track sensor or a itron cyble sensor homewizard.nl/kb/article/48/water-meten ... nergylink/

but how can i connect that to my PI and see the data in domoticz?

The last option (itron cyble sensor) seems the easiest way to me, but i have no idea how to connect that too my pi.
