If I have an Arduino-based energy meter, how can I visualize the data output on the Pi Server and your tools?
Hi, this is quite a broad question. Are you looking for technical support or architecture or commercial?
As mentioned I just want to display energy data for my house using the Pi Server. If it works then maybe we can make it more 'commercial' to include 3 phase measurements. But single phase is fairly achievable on an Arduino platform.
1) architecture wise. Do I have to enroll in any course to pull this through so that I can integrate raw data to the Pi Server? Or do you give enough documentation to make this possible? Will that course cost money?
2) technical support. What would it take to put the data that I have from Arduino on the Pi Server? What components or software modules do I have to install to make that happen?
3) cost wise. Do I have to buy into the Pi Server 'time' or 'space'? Is it free to integrate into the Pi Server dashboard?
Well, a license for the PI system will set you back >$1000 at least. I think there is some confusion here... The OSIsoft PI Server is an industrial grade application for large installations. Typically a private installation is not feasible.
OSIsoft PI is not the same as Raspberry PI nor arduino. Yes, they do touch in places, but for your use case i'd suggest to look into alternative solutions like Home assistant: https://www.home-assistant.io/
