From the Forums: Real-time Electricity Meter Display for Neur.io Monitors #IoT #IoTuesday @NeurioHome

Thanks to Forums user j15e for sending this in! It looks great – sometimes a project that is simple and elegant is all it should be.

I created an object to display the live consumption from my http://neur.io IoT meter in the living room. I don’t want to be looking at my iPhone all day long but I still want to get a sense of the energy my house is using at any time.

This is what it looks like. The display brightness is a ratio of the peak consumption.

You can find the code & more details about hardware here:

I also now have an updated version that automatically close display when there is no movement detected (I am using data from an other device on my local network). And I added an extra display to show peak consumption. Those projects never ends!

Adafruit 0.56″ 4-Digit 7-Segment Display w/I2C Backpack – White: What’s better than a single LED? Lots of LEDs! A fun way to make a small display is to use an 8×8 matrix or a 4-digit 7-segment display. Matrices like these are ‘multiplexed’ – so to control all the seven-segment LEDs you need 14 pins. That’s a lot of pins, and there are driver chips like the MAX7219 that can control a matrix for you but there’s a lot of wiring to set up and they take up a ton of space. Here at Adafruit we feel your pain! After all, wouldn’t it be awesome if you could control a matrix without tons of wiring? That’s where these adorable LED matrix backpacks come in. We have them in two flavors – a mini 8×8 and a 4-digit 0.56″ 7-segment. They work perfectly with the matrices we stock in the Adafruit shop and make adding a bright little display trivial.
