Green Eye Monitor Support (GEM)

Hello Autelis,

 

As indicated below in another thread:

 

You can definitely get all your GEM data into ISY variables by connecting our RS232 interface to one of the RS232 ports on your GEM and we will assist you with configuration as necessary. Please start a new topic if you would like to request an example configuration.

 

Thanks

 

I am very interested in obtaining all available GEM data in the hopes it can be pushed to the ISY for control of my Insteon network. There may be some over lap of features or data that each system is able to provide and offer.

 

But, in my mind that is just a bonus and provides back up and redundancy. I would like to capture and push the following metrics (power, energy, current, temperature, pulse, voltage) from the GEM to your product and then to the ISY. This data will then be used to initiate Insteon control of various devices in the home.

 

Before we begin I would like to clarify if you're speaking about two separate devices or is this something the existing 2 way 1-wire ISY module can accomplish?

 

As indicated above, if you have examples of how this is done and can provide more details that would be great.

 

Thank You

Yes this can be accomplished using only the Universal RS232 Interface for ISY.

 

A serial port on the GEM would be connected to the Universal RS232 Interface. The Universal RS232 Interface would be connected to your network via ethernet cable or wifi/homeplug bridge.

 

The following rules would be setup on the Universal RS232 Interface and assume that the GEM is set to output ASCII WITH WH format:

 

Rule - Places the consumption reading of channel 1 into an ISY variable

w,h,_,1,=,*,*,*,*,*

D,5,2

 

Rule - Places the instantaneous power reading of channel 1 into an ISY variable

p,_,1,=,*,*,*,*,*

A,4,5

 

Rule - Places the instantaneous current reading of channel 1 into an ISY variable

a,_,1,=,*,*,*,*,*

D,4,2

 

Rule - Places the temperature reading of sensor 1 into an ISY variable

t,_,1,=,*,*,*,*,*

D,4,1

 

Rule - Places the counter reading of counter 1 into an ISY variable

c,_,1,=,*,*,*,*,*

A,4,5

 

Rule - Places the voltage reading into an ISY variable

v,=,*,*,*,*,*

D,2,1

Hello Autelis,

 

I have posed this question to Brultech the makers of the GEM. The reason being is that I have a very complicated installation where various formats are currently being used. I also have one of several COM ports utilized to communicate to the ISY and to my Dash Box.

 

If there is a method to introduce a third packet format: ASCII WITH WH format. It will more than likely have to come from my Dash Box (DB). I shall report back what I find and look forward to doing long term business with you, and your fine company.

 

If you could let me know if the e-mail notification along with the threshold limiter is on the road map that would be great to know. As I may still consider using this little box to at least push the temperature / humidity to the ISY and let the system manage my Insteon network.

 

I am trying very hard to have as many things fully integrated into all three systems to ensure fail over and consistent reactions to my homes environment. Your product looks to be the magic bullet in bridging many aspects that I am missing and also providing additional features not yet supported by the other two vendors.

You could remove the existing ISY interface if you could live with all your energy information in variables within ISY instead of within the energy plugin structure. You could also split one of the serial outputs you are using and tweak the rule search strings to be compatible with one of the protocols you are currently using. We haven't looked at the other protocol formats in detail.

If you could engage Brultech directly on my behalf and inquire about the specifics of your product. This may assist both companies in integrating what is needed. You can reach them at ben@brultech.com

 

I believe this would benefit both of you a great deal in terms of future cross sales.
