1.2 Publish topic to open source hardware or firmware(Tasmota)
Tasmota is an open source firmware for ESP8266 devices, it support nearly all of SonOff device.
Now, You can trigger this smart plug or switch on/off by IAMMETER automatically. Please note that SonOff products must be running tasmota firmware.
This is especially useful in solar PV system application in our energy monitoring system(IAMMETER cloud)
You can switch on the smart plug when the solar PV power is higher than a preset value.
This trigger setting will help you promote the Self-consumption rate of your photovoltaic system .

Three phase power is displayed independently per phase on the overview page now.
3.2 Auto Sending → trigger center
Auto Sending function on IAMMETER has been upgraded recently. By this function, now it does not only trigger email sending, but also trigger web hook or MQTT command. You can trigger IFTTT implementation (https://imeter.club/topic/9), to control SonOff products running Tasmota (https://imeter.club/topic/43), or call some self-defined web hook etc. Now it is more like a trigger center than a simple "auto sending function"
