I've been experimenting with the idea of a pre-built <span class="scayt-misspell-word" data-scayt-word="heatpump">heatpump</span> dashboard - a bit like the myelectric module for home energy monitoring.<br /><br />The initial concept is up on emoncms.org under the Extras &gt; <span class="scayt-misspell-word" data-scayt-word="heatpump">heatpump</span> tab. The <span class="scayt-misspell-word" data-scayt-word="heatpump">heatpump</span> fan turns in relation to power input a bit like the <a data-cke-saved-href="http://winderful.diascreative.net/" href="http://winderful.diascreative.net/"><span class="scayt-misspell-word" data-scayt-word="winderful">winderful</span></a> <span class="scayt-misspell-word" data-scayt-word="windturbine">windturbine.</span> <br /><br />Configuration is by naming convention at the moment, the dashboard looks automatically for feeds named or containing the words: <span class="scayt-misspell-word" data-scayt-word="heatpump">heatpump</span>_power, <span class="scayt-misspell-word" data-scayt-word="heatpump">heatpump</span>_kwh, <span class="scayt-misspell-word" data-scayt-word="heatpump">heatpump</span>_flow_temp, <span class="scayt-misspell-word" data-scayt-word="heatpump">heatpump</span>_return_temp, ambient_temp and room_temp, using these if present.<br /><br /><a data-cke-saved-href="http://openenergymonitor.org/emon/sites/default/files/myheatpump.png" href="http://openenergymonitor.org/emon/sites/default/files/myheatpump.png"><img alt="" data-cke-saved-src="http://openenergymonitor.org/emon/sites/default/files/myheatpump.png" src="http://openenergymonitor.org/emon/sites/default/files/myheatpump.png" style="height: 353px; width: 400px;" />&nbsp;</a><br /><br />Next I plan to extend this for <span class="scayt-misspell-word" data-scayt-word="heatpump">heatpump</span> monitors that also monitor either flow rate or heat output in order to show COP information including a daily power input/ heat output bar graph below the <span class="scayt-misspell-word" data-scayt-word="heatpump">heatpump</span> graphic.<br /><br />I've been doing this work with<a data-cke-saved-href="http://openenergymonitor.org/emon/user/53" href="http://openenergymonitor.org/emon/user/53"> John Cantor</a> who is using the <span class="scayt-misspell-word" data-scayt-word="OpenEnergyMonitor">OpenEnergyMonitor</span> system for <span class="scayt-misspell-word" data-scayt-word="heatpump">heatpump</span> monitoring.<br /><br />The source code for this can be found here if youd like to try it on your own install, just drop the folder <span class="scayt-misspell-word" data-scayt-word="heatpump">heatpump</span> into your emoncms modules directory: <a href="https://github.com/emoncms/development/tree/master/Modules/heatpump">https://github.com/emoncms/development/tree/master/Modules/<span class="scayt-misspell-word" data-scayt-word="heatpump">heatpump</span></a>
