Jameson

Do you have these same specs for the v4 ominmeter?

Current time field

Guys, Maybe this was already asked. How do I parse and make sense out of the 'CurrentTime' field? I get something back like this: 14091906081408 Digit position (1-based index): 1 -2 = 14 is year 3 -4 = 09 is month 5- 6 = 19 is day 7- 8 06 is day of week? (Friday - Sunday is start of week - 01) 9 -10...

Re: zigbee wireless network

Jameson,

Thanks. That gives me confidence. One other question: How often does the Zigbee device send signals and how much power does it draw in say, a given day?

Pardon me if this is obvious from specs. Perhaps I missed it.

Re: zigbee wireless network

Jameson,

Have you guys tried powering the EKM 485Bee with a solar panel that provides 6 V DC?

Re: slow comms

My ignorance may be exposed in this post, but I will proceed nonetheless. The iSerial serves as nice "broker" between Ethernet and RS485. Removing it from the communications stack and replacing it with the USB converter seems like it might increase complexity of my current implementation. Maybe not?...

Re: slow comms

I'd like to second nielo's request for faster transfer rates. For my home with a single water, power, and gas line, the current implementation is working great. However, there are some commercial use cases that we are testing that would require faster communications.

Jameson,

Sorry, that came off as bragging. :-) I was trying to convey how easy you guys made it for me.

.NET solution - everything worked great

Hi all, No complaints here--I wanted to express my appeciation! Big thanks to Seth and Jameson for helping me. I have 1 Omnimeter v.4, 1 iSerial, 1 water meter and 1 power meter. I just wrote a .NET console app in C# using asynchronous sockets to query data from the iSerial. With help from the Devel...
