Nice work.
Is there a way to receive the water data from Domoticz.? I use this method https://www.domoticz.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=17123
It works fine in Domoticz and it shouldn’t be that hard to get this data in the toon (only not for me)

Any ideas?

Yes, it is quite simple. Just install the toonWater app and in the setting menu (when you click the txt tile). You will see an option to import water from domoticz. Fill in your domotics ip and port and the two idx ‘s. That simple.

Ik heb ze weer.

Nu ook complete en kant-en klare setjes te koop voor iedereen die wat minder bedreven is in solderen maar toch de toonWater app wil gebruiken:

Toon App: Water

Ik heb via Marktplaats complete module bij oepi-loepie gekocht.
Na wat instellingen op mijn Toon en in mijn Wifi netwerk (heel makkelijk) draait alles
Alles is bij geleverd en montage voorbereid is dus plug n play
Duidelijke gebruiksaanwijzing werden er ook bijgeleverd

version 1.1.16:

Thanks again!!

3 things I found on Toon.
1: ToonWater gives a negative value for the cost. As if I deliverd water :lol:
2: Where do I set the price of a m^3 water?
3: Possible to give watermeter when you click on Meterstand in the Graph?

Thanks!


here the same problem with the negative numbers
removing the tile and adding it again was the solution.
after this no more negative numbers.

Today I finally had some time solder together the "sensor" to read out my Elster water meter. The nice thing about this meter is that it has an opening to put in a reed contact which gives you 2 pulses per 1 liter of water used. Below a short description of what I did as it could be useful to others.

What do you need:
- 2mm reed contact (I used one from aliexpress: nl.aliexpress.com/item/4000773848015.ht ... 4c4dyQ4ZcZ)
- 10 kOhm resistor (or something alike as "pull-up" --> optional, seems to work without as well)
- 3 wire cable
- shrink sleeve

Step1: Remove the small plastic cap that is located at the encircled position
Image

Step2: Drill a hole in the top position of the cap and pull the cable through the hole

Step3: Solder the reed contact, the 10kOhm resistor and the cable together as depicted below. Make sure it is compact enough to fit in the hole of the meter :).
In my case the schematic is: +3.3v (brown) - 10kOhm - signal (green) - reed contact - ground (white)
Image

Step4: Put a shrink sleeve around to avoid shorts to the water meter
Image

Step5: Push your sensor in the hole of the water meter, the plug should secure its position.
Image

Step6: Connect to the Wemos as described by the general manual (in my case: white - GND, green - D2, brown - 3v3)
Image

Follow the rest of the manual of opie-loepie. Make sure you set "deel pulsen door 2", otherwise you will be measuring twice as much ;).

Super. I did not know the meter has a magnet. Good solution and thank you for sharing. I think the 10kOhm resistor is not needed since i used the internall pullup. Just GND and D2 should do the trick.

I was not sure and adding the pull-up later would be more of a hassle. Just checked: it works without pull-up indeed.

Is there a maximum of length of the cable? I had a nice working set, but wanted the wire out of sight.
I doubled the length of the original sensor. The red-led on the sensor is working as usual, the blue led on the wemos goes out when the led on the sensor is on.
but the Wemos doesn't seem to give a puls/waterflow signal or update the watermeter..

Thanks for the response!

As long as you keep the length not excessive long, there should not be a problem. A few meters for a digital signal is nothing special. It should work.

What does the webportal show (esp-toonwater.local) when you keep refreshing the page and add pulses to the sensor?

The portal looks normal, but no updates when the sensor gives pulses...
I'll recheck te wires..

Thanks

By the way, found a "bug" in the portal, version 1.1.11

When you go to "update" and than choose "terug" you get the following: "http://10.187.1.121/%22//%22"

I have put an USB (male-female) extension cable and that works. The only problem I still have is the right positioning of the sensor :D
