Example accessing meter

Post by dandelot » Sat Oct 18, 2014 4:05 pm

I've put example code which accesses my EKM water meter in
http://www.prevanders.net/ekmexample.tar (the tar file
comtains C and Python source). It is written for Linux/Unix
but might be of some value for people using other OS's.
Source license is BSD.

http://www.prevanders.net/water.html
shows a little bit of how I use the resulting data.

That tar file is now gone, a bit out of date.
The water.html page links to an updated tar file.

Dandelot- I am a developer (PHP, JS mostly) and am super interested in more details about your ekm water meter project. Would you be willing to share you hardware setup- I grabbed your tar file already-

I run an ESXi stack out of my house and have lots of dev boxes up and running to host code. Stuck at the physical nature of how you hooked things (serial-to-ethernet converter) up.

Thanks
