Energy consumption

Hi,

In the parameters of my zipabox, there is one called "Energy consumption".

When I click on this setting, I get the following answer: "this function requires a pro license".

The problem is that I already own a pro license.

What do I do to use this feature?

Thanks for your help.

Regards

Michel

Michel,

Zipato is about to launch the PRO Energy Consumption feature, however is still under development and currently only available for BETA testers, for some reason these parameters or "dollar signs" on meters are shown for everyone but only available to few testers.

This option will include advanced charts for electric consumption, also reporting and resetting based on bill periods and some other functionality. If this feature is released while your PRO licence is active (1-year period) you will get the functionality.

Regards.

Hi,

Thanks for your answer.

For your note, I thought that the "THANK" was a button not a choice list.

Next time I would be careful.

I see a "Energy Consumption" app for sale in the store (my.zipato.com), but having been burned by the Pro w/ Cluster cost and the whole development saga, would like to understand:

- is this a cost per controller thing like the Pro license?

- is this a released functionality or still Beta?

Whatever this release is, it doesn't work. I have a $ sign, having purchased "Energy Consumption", and it appears to be available as an option, but all I get is a spinning 'Loading' wheel. I've left it loading now for 15 minutes and nothing! I'm hoping it's me, and I'm a complete numpty otherwise I've lost 29 credits!

Sounds great! So if I buy this i will be able to export sensordata from any sensor in the system? For example a 3-phase energy meter and most important for me the temp/humidity sensors? I' m not really keen on buying 100 credits to get this from Zipato as the Zipabox firmware have not been updated for a long time now so I wonder if they will stop supporting it.
