TED Pro Support / Ted Screensaver
« Last post by tlveik on June 06, 2019, 09:30:50 PM »
I wrote a Windows screensaver that pulls data from the TED Pro and displays a gauge on the screen showing the amount of power that is currently being used.  I'm making this freely available to anyone who wants to use it if anyone is interested.

There is no installation required.  Simply download TedScreenSaver.SCR and copy it into your Windows directory.  Then use the Windows screensaver selection dialog and choose TedScreenSaver.

In the screensaver Settings dialog box, enter the URL you use to access Footprints.  i.e. http://ted6000/Footprints.html if that is what you use.  You can also choose maximum gauge watts, a gauge color set, and more.

This should be considered Beta software at this point.  It's working well for me, but who knows what bugs might show up on other systems.  If you decide to try it, let me know here how it works.

TED5000 Support / Re: Suggestion - Roku channel, Roku Screensaver

I can't help you on the Roku side, but it's an interesting idea.  If fact, I may just give this a try and write a Windows screen saver for this idea.

Also, if there is another way to get the TED information to a video screen without too much hassle and that does not necessarily involve working with another technology provider, then that might be a good idea as well.  If there is a competitor to Roku that offers similar capabilities to Roku, then they might also be worth considering.  The overall idea here is that I have long thought it might be interesting if I could see the TED information as a screensaver option on my video screen, as well as perhaps view a bit more in-depth information as a selectable choice in the channels.

TED5000 Support / Suggestion - Roku channel, Roku Screensaver
« Last post by jlsoaz on May 04, 2019, 10:25:06 PM »
Hi -
I suggest that Energy Inc consider working with Roku to:

- allow for the TED information to display as a screensaver on a video screen hooked to a Roku.
- allow for a TED channel on the Roku that would allow for a person to view and scroll through the basic TED information on the video screen rather than just on a computer or the separate handheld LCD display.

TED Pro Support / Re: Data error every 15 minutes

I think I was right.  Two days since disconnecting Ted Commander and not a single glitch with with my Ted Pro.

This 'every 15 minute data error' problem cropped up again.  I also see that coincident with this, there are also problems with Ted Commander.  That was happening the last time too.  So now I'm wondering if somehow Ted Commander is causing my local problems.

So I disconnected my connection with Ted Commander to see if my local problems clear up.

TED5000 Support / Re: Unrealistic High readings on my dashboard and histories.
« Last post by jlsoaz on February 04, 2019, 01:49:04 AM »

There is no 'built-in' way of doing this - either for the TED5000 or for the TED Pro series. If the MTU data saved by the 'Backup History' option in the TED5000 is in a comparable format to the MTU data exported from the current hardware (basically a memory dump of the data storage area), as I imagine it will be, I am afraid that there is also no magic workaround that I can suggest for you.

ok, thanks, good to know.

The cause of the problem is, almost certainly, as Support7 said, power-line fluctuations and glitches, which are inevitable in anything connected to the mains. [...]

Is that the cause of the problem?  Perhaps we are looking at related-but-not-the-same problems? 

My hope would not be to stop the occasional spike but simply to be able to go into historical data that is the basis for some charts, get rid of or revise to some sort of middling estimate the occasional outlier kWh data point that clearly has nothing to do with reality, and thus once again be able to read the charts and make some of use of them.  In effect, if a major use for me of TED would occasionally be to review some long-term historical charts, then much of this goal cannot be attained due to just a few claimed-uneditable data points. 

Perhaps if you or someone else could mention a path to export the data to some generally accepted data format (.csv, or some-such) I could try again.   Perhaps it is more easily discovered than I realize as to how to do that export/workaround type of procedure, but it has been too many years since I set this aside, so I don't know.
