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.

Configure IAMMETER-Simulator

Install and Run the IAMMETER-simulator first.

Install the IAMMETER`s simulator

Run the IAMMETER`s simulator

You can simulated a solar PV output or simulated some loads in this simulator.

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.
