API documentation for HV v.5 Electric Meter

Post by meeklove » Mon Feb 24, 2020 12:56 pm

Hello!

I'm starting a new project that requires the Omnimeter HV v.5. Is there any API documentation for this meter? I noticed it was not in the "new documentation" I found in a previous post dated in 2018. I hope there is documentation... I pray there is documentation.

Thank you in advance! :D

Hello Meeklove,

If you are talking about the RS485 communication protocol: The Omnimeter HV v.5 uses exactly the same RS485 communication protocol as the v4 meters. Sorry for the confusion.

So you should be able to use our RS485 API documentation here: https://documents.ekmmetering.com/api-d ... unications


If you are talking about the EKM Push cloud APIs, you can use the new (and very cool) real-time API: https://documents.ekmmetering.com/api-d ... altime-api

With the new API, you dont have to specify v3, v4, or v5 meters. It just works!! 8-)

And you can also use the Summary (Historical) API (again you dont have to specify v3, v4, or v5 meters here): https://documents.ekmmetering.com/api-d ... ummary-api
