Youless 1.jpg

The hardware required

All you need is a youless like the one next to this text.


  • Apache 2.2+
  • PHP 5.3
  • MySQL 5.0+
  • JQuery 1.8.23+
  • Highstock JS v1.1.4
  • jQuery UI - v1.8.23

Furthermore you need the attached zipfile File:Energy.tar

How does it work

The youless detects the led-flash on the KWh meter and stores the value in it's internal database. Using json, I read the data out of the json, save it in my own database and do fancy stuff with it.


  • Currently the graph isn't being drawn
  • Day, week, month aren't populating
  • You can add a device, but not remove or update it.
