MQTT & Energy APIs & Third-party server&Modbus/TCP

By a simple configuration, IAMMETER products can push energy data directly to the third-party cloud and will not push energy data to IAMMETER-cloud anymore. So if you have IAMMETER products but do not want to use IAMMETER-cloud for some reasons, you can also develop your own cloud service.

IAMMETER-cloud provides an MQTT broker service, so you can subscribe your energy data from it. IAMMETER-Cloud also provides NEST API that you can get data from it easily.

For more details ,please refer to How to develop your own system by IAMMETER products and system

3 Control open-source hardware that supports MQTT subscribe from the IAMMETER cloud. How to control the open source hardware from IAMMETER-Cloud.
4 Control SonOFF products running tasmota firmware on IAMMETER Control the SonOff product(run tasmota) from IAMMETER.
5 Develop your own energy monitoring view from IAMMETER cloud If you are familiar with JavaScript, you can develop your own energy monitoring view. Develop your own energy monitoring view
6 Upload the energy monitor data to a third-party server If you do not want to use IAMMETER-cloud service, you can configure the energy monitor to upload the data to your own server. upload data to another server(http,tcp,tls) upload data to another server by mqtt
7 Request the data of 3 phase energy meter(Wi-Fi) from the Modbus TCP This video shows how to poll the data from WEM3080T(3 phase energy meter Wi-Fi) and WEM3080 (single-phase energy meter Wi-Fi) via the Modbus tcp. Register mapping of the energy meter https://www.iammeter.com/newsshow/news-modbus-tcp-energy-meter
