Hello everyone, this blog post will delve into the topic of energy monitoring, featuring the utilization of the SONOFF POW Elite energy monitoring device in conjunction with OpenHAB. In the forthcoming pair of videos, I will demonstrate the process of flashing the TASMOTA firmware onto the SONOFF POW modules and subsequently harnessing the energy consumption data it generates within OpenHAB. Furthermore, I will detail the text-based method I employ to integrate the device into OpenHAB, aligning with my preferred approach within my Home Automation Setup. It's worth noting that this integration can also be achieved through the OpenHAB UI if preferred.
1. Flashing TASMOTA to SONOFF POW Elite
2. Ingesting data from SONOFF POW w/ TASMOTA to OpenHAB
