Energy Monitor

Monitor and record amperage across an AC line using REST APIs

Similar projects worth following
Inspired by - this project monitors AC line current using a current transformer whose signals are then translated to datagrams over USB, where it can be stored and interpreted by a host server.

An Arduino is used for analog-to-digital conversion (in my case an Adafruit Trinket 5V) as well as faux USB serial communication to the host computer. The host could be a laptop or Raspberry Pi, and then an HTTP server can retrieve the current amperage and make the current value available as a REST API endpoint.
