This updated has been merged into the stable Emoncms branch V9.6. If your running an emonPi/emonBase jsut hit update to pull in the changes. The update will appear on in the next few days.

This QR code contains the Emoncms URL and read-API key to automate setting up the Emoncms android app. The update for the app to support the QR code scanner has been pushed to Googe Play. After the update just can the QR code to setup the app.

If your feeds are named use and use_kwh the app will automatically select use these feeds as the Power and kWh feeds.
