Please post your questions/tips/remarks related to toon's metering module(s) and sensors here. This also includes toon solar equipment.

Hello,

I'm having trouble getting the "Eneco meter adapter" (made by Prodrive) to work in Domoticz.
The Z-Wave controller can include the meter adapter as node. (Vision Z-Wave plus USB Stick ZU1401EU)

The adapter does not react to commands and wil not send data to the controller.
The log shows this message:
OpenZWave: Received timeout notification from HomeID: 3512465236, NodeID: 2 (0x02)

Same problem is reported in Domoticz forum:
https://www.domoticz.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=9070

Has anyone successfully read data with this sensor over OpenZwave.
Have not yet tried in Domotiga, or OpenHab.

Update:

I found the following post on the same problem:
groups.google.com/forum/#!msg/openzwave ... DpORSvBwAJ
We don’t support the COMMAND_CLASS_METER_* classes it uses, so it won’t work with OZW


Apparently in the config file a class is not supported in OZW, so the addapter does not work with Open Z-Wave (yet).

This calls for plan B.
The "meter adapter" has two led lights that blink when counting the refs of Gas and Electric meter.
The plan is to connect the LED wires to the GPIO pins of the raspberry and use it as input for Util metering.

I would like to exclude the Meter adapter completely and use JSON data from Domoticz instead. This because I already have all the Electric/Gas/Water readings present in Domoticz and want to use Toon as a display.

I hoped that I could just parse URL's just like with the thermostat to update the Electric/Gas sensor values. But unfortunately it reads the values from Zwave directly.
If anyone has another idea, please let me know.

If you mean you want to display data as retrieved from another place than the RRD databases of toon, you should delve into the qml code for the graph apps (yes, there are many). These apps do all data retrieval from the databases and display them. "Just" reroute the input data from another place into the display code and you should be good :-).

Fluency in QML and Javascript required.

I also have a Domoticz server running and was curiuos if someone was able to pull the usage data from Domoticz into Toon.

What exactly do you want to read from Domoticz?

The gas, electric, water usage and also what the solar panels are producing.
The main reason is that for gas and electric, i have a P1 cable connected between my Raspberry PI and smart meter, so all the consumption data is available and it would be very nice to show this information on my rooted Toon.

Should be possible, if someone is willing to write the app. This thread is slowly drifting away from its topic, so please start a separate thread on integration between toon and Domoticz.
I can't see why it is necessary, though, because all P1 data are already available on toon. No need to import them from Domoticz.

Send me a PM if you can (10+ posts needed). I already build DomoticzBoard and wanne give your idea's a shot but i need to know what you really want.

Yeah would love to see this kind of functionality. Logging P1, Water and Solar directly into Domoticz. Would be awesome to pull the information into Toon, or even better, have a way to post the information into Toon. Since thats how I post the information into Domoticz as well.

More than happy to assist somehow!

I bought my Toon second hand

I am missing the sensor cables. I only have a p1 cable but no smart p1 meter :(

does any one know where to buy them?

Just the cables, or the sensors as well?

For the cables, you can use standard cables with 3.5mm stereo jack plugs:
