Update 2011-06-25 A lot of people still contact me about this project. I received this mail today, just in case you’re getting interested by the project, you should know that it will die pretty soon: Dear PowerMeter User, We first launched Google PowerMeter as a Google.org project to raise awareness about the importance of giving people access to their energy information. Since our launch, there’s been more attention brought to this issue, and we’re excited that PowerMeter has helped demonstrate the importance of access to energy data.
When I was a student, I worked on a little home automation project, it was part of a partnership between my school as the company. We were 5 five on the project and I was doing the core gateway. It was relying on the OSGi framework, I built some bundles (the OSGi way). AND… The most frustration thing we encountered is that we couldn’t find by that time any cheap and reliable home automation system.
