2016-04-17 - Preparing CitizenWatt sensors / Infra
With @Sam :
- Inventory of the equipment we have and the equipment needed for the CitizenWatt energy monitoring building.
- Lean how the CitizenWatt sensor works (further information to be gathered from Olivier Blondeau from CitizenWatt).
- Basically, components are soldered on the CitizenWatt board v1.1. The CitizenBoard fully loaded aim at taking the consumption data out of the electrical monitor at your house; with the CT sensor it will enable to capture the electrical consumption. It will then send it to a Raspberry Pi for data collection (as a server).
- CitizenWatt components welding on the CitizenWatt board v.1.1 following :
- What we have soldered: R1, R2, R3, R4, R5, Green LED, Red LED, FTDI connector.
- What need to be bough and soldered: the remaining components to fully complete the CitizenWatt board.
- We have decided that each CW / OEM sensor/monitor need to have a Raspberry PI with Ethereum installed to directly embed data in BC and push BC and not clear data for security reason > data has to be directly embeded within the BC. It appears that pushing the data to a R.Pi in order to process it afterwards (as OEM is doing it actually) is not safe.
