Interpreting the JSON Data from IAMMETER`s Energy Meter

This article primarily introduces the definition of JSON data for electric meters.

Please note: this article is not intended for the general user; it's specifically for those who wish to integrate IAMMETER`s energy meter into 3rd party system. If you are just using the electric meter within the IAMMETER system, there is no need to focus on the details of the JSON content.

This includes scenarios such as uploading energy meter data to a third-party server or integrating the energy meter into an open-source platform locally. Regardless of whether the meter is set up to upload data to a third-party server (using HTTP/HTTPS, TCP/TLS, MQTT) or to retrieve data through a local API, the JSON format remains consistent across all methods.

Please note:

  1. The measurement of reactive power (KVAR) and reactive energy (KVARH) is only activated when you enable their tracking through this API.
  2. active power = Voltage * Current * power factor
