Wattcher part #3 – creating a web database with AppEngine

In this latest installment, watch as the heroine takes Watt-hour averages, learns Google App Engine and creates a webapp custom-designed to store her sensor data. Wow! See data as it trickles in at http://wattcher.appspot.com

Next up: Graphs, diagrams and other pretty pictures!


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

  1. Hey Ada, how do you monitor usage by lights and appliances?

    I loved your concept, but I too live in a rented apartment and not very excited about hacking the electric system. But lights and appliances are a must, otherwise it won’t be even barely accurate in my case.

  2. Neat, but really, your REST webservice should respond to an HTTP POST request instead of a GET request in PowerUpdate. 😉

    Only change you’d have to make to your python script would be to pass a data parameter to urllib2.Request(url, data) See: http://www.voidspace.org.uk/python/articles/urllib2.shtml#data

  3. GET is easier for my brain to cope with
