Last week we 'soft launched' the shop to friends, members of the community and our twitter followers. We would like to say a big thank you to everyone who's supported the project by making a purchase through the shop. We have been a little overwhelmed by the level of interest. Again, thank you, you guys are amazing!
In the shop we sell all the components needed to build an Arduino based wireless, web-connected open-source energy monitoring system.
Component kits for the main OpenEnergyMonitor modules are available in the shop:
|emonTx - wireless energy monitoring transmitter unit|
|emonGLCD - wireless graphical LCD display unit with on-board LED's & sensors|
|emonBase - NanodeRF wireless, web-connected base station|
This system is still in development, it's not an end user consumer product. It is however functional and very flexible in it's current form. Being Arduino based and using standard Arduino software libraries, it's easy to customise the system to meet your needs.
One motivation behind opening the shop is that by selling the units in development kit form it removes barriers to entry and empowers members of the OpenEnergyMonitor community to to get involved with the project. Revenue raised through the shop will go directly towards funding more development and sustaining ourselves so we can continue working on the project.
In the near future we are planning to move to surface mount electronics to enable pre-assembled units. See our newly updated vision page for more information on how we see the project progressing in the future. To engage in discussion regarding this post, please post on our Community Forum.
