Hi, I can only get the webhook to monitor every 30min, which doesnt allow me to optimize my solar consumption. is there a way of getting this closer to real-time? I am looking to adjust the amps being loaded to the car, plus use the immersion for hot water.. but if there is a break in sun, or even towards the end of the day the 30min wait can potentially cost me for grid consumption
The upload interval to IAMMETER-cloud is fixed in 1 min(faster upload will bring a more expensive service cost, so we think 1 min is a proper option to balance effect and cost).
If you want to use the energy meter as the sensor in the control loop and think its reading is not feedback fast enough, you can deploy a local system to achieve the control loop, such as the home assistant.
It can read the value every min(by Modbus/TCP sensor in home assistant) which is fast enough to feedback in the control loop.
For more details, please refer to this
At the same time, you can use the chart of IAMMETER to confirm whether your control loop takes effect.
The upload time of 1 min is not fast enough as a sensor value in the control loop, but it is already fast enough to show the result.
