So I bought a used probe figuring I could do *something* with it.
It's a US Microtel PM-500. It snaps on the power meter's optical port.
Has anyone ever seen information on interfacing with this thing? I mean last resort, I'll just build one of these http://www.solarshare.net/HT/OC/oc.htm" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; and build it into the housing.
But if I could interface with it directly, that would be better. I'm sure people have done this before...but I can't seem to find anything. I'd love to interface it with my home automation for automatic reporting.
