.NET solution - everything worked great

Post by pvanroos » Sun Aug 31, 2014 11:12 am

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 Developer Portal, I then parsed the returned hex code. I deployed the console app on a local network server and it's pulling data from the Omnimeter every few seconds and pushing that data to my cloud database on Azure. I built a simple web app and mobile app to view the results.

It took me ~4.5 hours to do this! :D

Thanks guys,

Paul

4.5 hours must be some kind of record.

Jameson,

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

Not at all !! :P We are so glad to hear we were able to provide all of the information you needed to get it to work. If there are any gaping holes in our documentation, please let us know. We are always trying to find ways to make it better (more clear or more concise).

Again, thanks for posting.
