Philio & zipato smart energy meter

driver

#1

Just wondering if anyone knows if the Philio or Zipato smart energy meter works with any existing DH in hubitat or if there is a custom DH out there anywhere?

Cheers.


#2

@mike.maxwell do you know if the Zipato will work with any built in or third party device handlers?
This is the exact product but an AU version:


#3

Sorry, I do not.


#4

You'll find out soon. @njanda ordered one


#5

That sound promising. If I had the knowledge to write a DH I would. It is the only energy meter I can find for Australia so love to get it working.
Looking forward to see if you can develop anything for this @njanda

Ha, don’t hold your breath. I’m no coder so it’ll be blind luck. I saw a bargain and thought, why not. :laughing:

See here:


#7

Haha. Same as I but I got the zipato brand at around $30 instead of 99. They look identical.


#8

Wow, at that price why don't you guys chip in, buy one and send it to someone that can code and is willing to take on the project for you.


#9

@braetonpearson, I’m up for that. Do you want to grab another one of the Zipato ones, as they’re cheaper, and I’ll share costs.


#10

Yep, no prob. Anyone willing to develop this? Are Hubitat team looking to put this device into their base @mike.maxwell or @bravenel ?

Ok, so the Philio SEM arrived and paired up to the Hub OK but it does not associate with any known drivers, as far as I can ascertain.

Manufacturer: 013C
Product Name: Device
Model Number: Unknown Part Number
deviceTypeId: 14
nodeId:1E
deviceId:001A
manufacturer:013C
deviceType:0006

outClusters:null

I've no idea what else to do than to start looking around the forums now. :slight_smile:


#12

I have been doing exactly that. No luck on Zipato but looking into other energy device handlers and the documentation I received with the unit. Trying to understand the coding as all I want out of this device is instantaneous watts.


#13

I've loaded up a driver from HERE and some data is being reported.
Have to wait a while for the polling and ensure you have a good power load to be detected.


#14

@njanda, have you got a screen shot of what is being reported?


#15

from the Device page:

#16

interesting. did you use that driver as is or make changes to it?

I don't get anything.


#17

IGNORE - It doesn't work : I used it "as is", but Like I said I had to wait a while for data to come through.
Take the dog for a walk, go grab a coffee, come back in 1/2 hr... he he he
Dashboard tile....

the 3 watts is due to me monitoring the power being consumed by my Ni-MH battery charger. :slight_smile:


#18

IGNORE - It doesn't work : I'm also not saying it's working perfectly, not at all.
I'm sure it could be better but it seems to be "something"


#19

I just tried this one and it does what I need:


#20

@vjv's driver , not the "Custom Laundry Monitor" one ?
There's a few in that post.
I'll give it a go because it seems the one I thought was working, is not updating
