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!


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

  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
