Integrate the simulated 3phase energy meter in Home assistant.
How to integrate IAMMETER-simulator with Home Assistant
Why use IAMMETER-simulator as example
IAMMETER-simulator is free software that provide nearly all of the function of the 3 phase energy meter(WEM3080T) of IAMMETER. So you can add this simulator to the home assistant and use it to evaluate the WEM3080T.
It can simulate data regarded loads, solar PV, and EV chargers. It also provides the same data interface as WEM3080T.
When you want to replace the simulator with the real energy meter,the only work is to replace the IP setting in HA, from the simulator to the real hardware.
Install and Run the IAMMETER-simulator first.
This simulated data will be returned on the API interface of the simulator, which will be used by the integration of IAMMETER in the home assistant.
Home assistant integration
Add the repository of IAMMETER from HACS
Add the integration of IAMMETER to home assistant
Configure IAMMETER` integration
IP: this is the IP of the simulator
port: the port of 8080 is defined in the setting file here
Click "1 device", all of the simulated value from the simulator will be display.
Click "ADD TO DASHBOARD"
All of the data will be displayed on the dashboard.
