How to monitor water consumption via Homey
Jan-Willem7 Mar 2021 Hall, Homey 0 Comments
Monitori water consumption of our analog Elster V200 water meter via Homey involved some puzzling to find the right equipment to fetch the pulses from the water meter and make them available in Homey. I decided to go for:
– Elster Falcon PR6 pulse reading module
– Youless Energy monitor LS120
It provides us now water consumption charts, waterflow charts and Homey flow possibilities to initiate actions. This article describes my journey to get the water consumption monitored via Homey.
