Title: Extending the life of a TED5000
Post by: Guest on June 05, 2021, 08:27:00 PM
For those looking to monitor or extend some of the functionality of TED5000, consider using Node-Red and Home Assistant.  Both can scrape the data from the API xml.  I have implemented these and can calculate costs again and have even extended it to simulate a renewable house (Wind, Solar, Battery and EV's) implementation using real house data power consumption data.

I am looking to try and detect appliances based on power fluctuations, so if anybody has any advise or ideas, I would appreciate it.

This is a great idea, although we need a way to contact you.

I am ThermoMan ( thestalwart1-tstat at yahoo . com ) and I have some PHP code that also uses the API https://github.com/ThermoMan/Thermostat-Tracking
