I'm playing around with setting up my own install of emoncms. It's working, but I don't have the OpenEVSE listed in the drop down list of devices; I only have AMIG, AMRM, EmonTH, Demonstration and smartmeter.
These appear to be json files located in "/emoncms/Modules/device/data", and obviously, I don't have one for OpenEVSE.
Should these be such a json file? If so, how where can I obtain it from? Or what should I be looking for / installing?
The automatic setup via devices is not required. Point OpenEVSE to local setup using your global API write key.
The Inputs will automatically show up and you can create feeds and dashboards from there.
Thanks, all working now. I might have been a little impatient in waiting for stuff to appear :)
Correct, if you use emoncms.org or a your own EmonCMS insistence on a emonpi then:
You will use the API Write key listed under your account.
0 is fine as a node. The example on github uses "openevse"
Server would be emonpi/emoncms or IP Address of your server xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/emoncms
SSL Fingerprint should be blank.
I would leave the certificate on the server and remove the fingerprint on the client until you get it working. You can add the fingerprint later, remember to update it whenever the cert renews.
Inputs will automatically be created, OpenEVSE sends all the inputs and values every 30 seconds. To create feeds go to your inputs in EmonCMS click on the Wrench icon and then add any multipliers, conversions etc. then add the feed and name. There is a ton of resources.
