Data logging


For my question i assume there will be graphs of the temperature sensors and maybe other sensor. Is it possible to save the data on a network drive. Or maybe get external excess to a ftp on Homey to get the data.




  • Van homey push data (and configurationele settings) tot a cloud storage location?
  • You Could use Xively to push sensor information and let Xively graph them. I use it for my current "DomotiGa" system.

    In Homey, you can access your (local!) logs if you want to, and do with the data whatever you want (e.g. export, or access programmatically).

    I think it would be a wonderful addition (maybe later) to have historie and graphs. Emile, can you shed some light on the information the logs will contain and the format they are in? (So I can anticipate some application and possibly get a head-start.)

    In my eyes, must-have is change/measurement/sensor or actor/date and time at least. Should-have (in the future?) is some dashboard of configurable graphs and compare to earlier periods or other measurements, with a calculated translation to real values (e.g. 7.9 volts = 31.4 degrees in livingroom). Nice-to-have/could-have could be even triggering scenario's and such based on measurements/durations, possibly even integration in the visual flow designer, showing your graphs and setting triggers also graphically >> I would love to get an e-mail from Homey when my weekly water usage surpasses the average of the last 6 months......

    Commercial aspect: Dashboards and graphs sell, cause they are sexy!

    Geeky aspect: With only the right measurements we could do anything in our own plugins/scripts.

    Technical aspect: Emile can do anything and in contrary to most IT-developers/architects I know, he calls a lot of stuff easy to do (keep that up! it's what makes a great company!)
