This is an article started by Russ Hensel, see "http://www.opencircuits.com/index.php?title=Russ_hensel#About My Articles" About My Articles for a bit of info. Still polishing up this page.

Introduction/Status

Purpose: This is a Graphical User Interface Application is to control TP-LINK HS110 Smart Plug w/Energy Monitoring (*TP-LINK HS110 Smart Plug w/Energy Monitoring - - Amazon.com ) graph and otherwise process the data. The application uses the pyHS100 library code. It should work on Windows, Mac, Linux, and the Raspberry Pi. It does require at least Python 3.6 as it uses f-strings ( print( f"evaluate this{1+1}" )

Program Status: Update.... now not working, wait till about Nov 10 or sooner. ( Program now Ver5 ) More or less beta, seems to work, but rough. Intended for those with some Python experience who can add the files to their Python development environment ( no install features for this code ). Some dependencies will need to be installed, probably prompted by error messages. Editing of the parameter file should be easier for those with Python experience. Users should find some useful documentation in the code, this is still a work in progress. Much code has been lifted from other projects of mine, some artifacts remain.

This Page Status: This page is the "master" page for the project, all other pages link back here, either directly or indirectly. Pages are drafts, but worth reading if you are trying to use the program.

Help File: Including install and configuration. SmartPlug Help File. Screen shots and more at: SmartPlug GUI Images.

More Documentation: See links below, and code ( russ-hensel/Smart Plug Repository )

Graphical User Interface

Like to see what the interface, the gui, looks like see: *SmartPlug GUI Images

Help "file" for the Program

Not a file but a page on this Wiki, this includes information on Download and Install, see: SmartPlug Help File Note that the wiki pages as pdf files may be found in .\wiki_etc, but these sometimes lag the online versions.

Python Code

Available at:

  • Directory Structure
    • .\ all executable python code
    • .\wiki_etc supplementary documentation, in particular this wiki's pages as pdf's.

Program Design

See: SmartPlug Technical

General

Matthias Random Stuff and Related

Matthias's youtube videos originally informed me about the SmartPlugs.

Amazon

Of course there are other sources.

Youtube Not Involving Python

Or maybe some Python ??
