well, i can’t seem to find a used ‘original’ EAGLE anywhere. the Eagle-200 does support push/post to an arbitrary website but it is not user configurable! per @pjschaffer’s Uploader API link, it has to be configured via rainforest cloud, by an “admin”. this is totally ridiculous.
i was fixated on a very short list of devices that appear as qualified on PG&E’s website; i misinterpreted their language to mean that they would only allow devices on their list to be associated with the smartmeter. but on a more careful reading it appears they have no such restriction. that opens things up to other devices. these DIGI products look like they might work, but i have to look into how you would write scripts for them.
thank you - i did find this last night and attempted to talk to my EAGLE using some test commands with curl. i get a response but the response is “timed out waiting for response” so i guess the web server is up but whatever it communicates with inside the box is down.
yes, i think this confirms what i read in other forums. someone at rainforest has to configure this for you. given the level of support they seem to provide, i believe going down this path is a world of hurt. i think what i’ll do is order an Eagle-200 from amazon and attempt to pull the consumption data from the local API and then post to PVOutput. @pjschaffer do you remember how much setup was required? from reading the docs it seems that i might have to configure a polling interval inside the EAGLE, but there might be more.
