Hi All

Why there there is no way to access data directly from http request (ex : ip_adress/output.xml)

I would like to record my consumption in my own mysql database but I didn't find anything to do that ?

Thanks and regards

David

It's a fairly broad question you are asking without giving any information about your skill level, or what equipment you have in place etc. so can I assume you are a developer with an ENVI connected to your PC with a current cost data cable? [Alternatively, if you want to download data from my.currentcost.com see http://www.currentcost.com/support/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=28]

The API for the output from the serial port installed with your data cable is documented in http://www.currentcost.com/cc128/xml.htm and should be enough to get you going.

If you don't want to write an interface yourself, you can look at the products in http://www.currentcost.com/software-downloads.html. If they don't do what you want you may be able to piggy-back on their database. For instance, Kerry Neighbour's CurrentChart builds an Ansi SQL database using firebird. The CurrentCost to Google Power meter writes all its data to a SQLite database. This should continue to work even after GPM is turned off, but I don't know whether it will continue to be supported.

Hope this helps

Hi,

Thanks for your reply. You right, I'm a developper with the Ethernet bridge (NetSmart). If I don't want do write my own interface, maybe your first suggestion will be an alternative. My need is a local solution. I noticed that sometime, the current cost lost the connection to the Current Cost portal. I need to restart it. And I don't mention when my internet connection is lost and not very stable. So that why I was looking for a local solution. Like a tool on my NAS sniffing data from the current cost and recording them to my SQL database

I will wait for your first suggestion

Thanks and regards
