I’m a PVOutput donor. I recently had a heatpump installed.
I’m working on setting up monitoring for its consumption. I am monitoring the three parts of the heatpump separately: outdoor unit, indoor unit, controller.
In a first attempt I was uploading the combined total of the three parts, using
(I let PVOutput determine the average power based on the cumulative energy.)
This appears to work fine — see GG2C 6.000kW. Great!
But what I really want to do is set up a separate system in PVOutput for each of the 3 independently monitored consumers (because it allows for deeper insight). So I did that using the exact same approach (so
c1=3 and uploading only
v3), but then automated it to be more efficient/upload historical use by using
https://pvoutput.org/service/r2/addbatchstatus.jsp instead, and using
POST instead of
So I got started with 2:
- outside unit: G2C — HP outside 0.050kW
- inside unit: G2C — HP inside 0.050kW
They upload fine … but they do NOT automatically get reset to 0 kWh at the start of the day, unlike SID 93242.
Is it possible this is a bug on the server side? Perhaps because I’m uploading batches that do not align with the end/start of a day, but contain a number of entries at the end of day N and a number of entries at the start of day N+1?
If it’s not a bug, what am I doing wrong?
P.S.: I will publish the corresponding code to allow other Shelly Pro 3EM users to upload to PVOutput as well — check https://github.com/wimleers/shelly-emdata-sqlite after I’ve figured this part out, then I’ll add the
upload_*.sh script too
