Available here are Linux-based software tools to enable easy interaction with commodity sensing equipment. These tools have been developed for use in the Smart* project.
Questions? All questions regarding these tools should be directed to Sean Barker.
Many of our sensors are Insteon powerline-based devices. The Insteon energy meter is the iMeter Solo, which does not ship with any easily scriptable software. Our
plmtools-imeter software (a fork of the
plmtools project) provides one-line querying capabilities of iMeter Solos (via a USB connection to an Insteon PLM).
Our deployment also includes Z-Wave devices, which communicate wirelessly at higher bandwidths than Insteon, but are more complicated to interact with using OpenZWave. Our Z-Wave reader script simplifies polling one or more Aeon Labs Smart Energy Switches in round-robin fashion at any specified interval.
