Next weekend Trystan Lea and I (Glyn Hudson) will be down in London for Home Camp 4 'Hack the house' event. We will be presenting our end-to-end open-source web-connected energy monitoring system. If you live within traveling distance of London please come along, we would love to meet anyone who is involved or interested in open-source energy monitoring.
Home Camp is a series of un-conferences that brings together members of the technical community interested in using open systems to bring about a positive change in the way we use energy and appliances around the home. With ever-increasing energy prices, the race is on to develop ways to utilise smart technology to help offset domestic energy consumption and lower carbon footprints.
The event will be a combination of informal presentations on the Saturday and more 'hands on' making, hacking and tinkering on the Sunday. Trystan and I will be around on both days will be more than happy to help anyone build their own open-source energy monitoring system and deploy a server installation of emoncms. We will also have emonTx, emonBase and emonGLCD kits for sale at special prices.
When: 29th - 30th Oct
Where: Central London in the Center for Creative Collaboration
Cost: The event is now free! Registration is required on EventBrite
Who: See the event crowd sourcing page at Lanyrd
We will also be attending the Open Source Hardware Camp on Thursday 27th Oct at the same location (C4CC). This looks like it will also be a good event: http://oshug.org/event/oshcamp
