IC-Meter releases update to simplify public API usage

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

To meet customer wishes IC-Meter has updated the public API regarding specification of time horizons for requests as well as a simplified JSON output format, making it easier to import data in e.g. Excel and PowerBI. This update does not affect existing requests.

API requests with pre-defined durations for latest data

Rather than always being required to specify start and end time for data it is now possible with the new update to specify periods such as ’10-min’, ‘1-hour’, ’24-hours’, ‘1-week’, ’30-days’, ‘1-month’ or ‘1-year’, in order to simplify the procedure for customers making frequent requests when they always are interested in the latest data. When specifying the period ’10-min’, the latest data from the last 10 minutes are fetched. If a long duration is specified the response times may be long, as many data points are fetched.

Simple JSON output for simplifying usage with analysis tools such as Excel or PowerBI

The existing JSON output is formatted as done by ‘google-visualization’, and produces a low overhead. The trade-off is that it is complicated to parse. With the update it is now possible to choose a more ‘simple’ JSON format, which is easier to parse with analysis tools such as Excel or PowerBI.

New product focuses on indoor climate and energy

June 20, 2013

A brand new concept that works as a Plug ’n Play focuses on indoor climate and energy on workplaces, in schools and in homes. The name is IC-Meter – Indoor Climate Meter.

A good indoor climate is essential for our health and well-being. The problem is simply that the indoor environment is rarely measured nor visualized. A little strange considering the fact that the world population lives a large part of their life indoors. For Northern Europeans as much as 90% of the time is spent indoors.

It is a fact that indoor climate in schools, homes and on workplaces often borderline the required needs and recommendations. This influences on our well-being and on our abilities to learn and focus.
Therefore, there are many good reasons to visualize the indoor climate and to get documentation on temperature, humidity, CO2 and air turnover where we work and live.

In the years to come many buildings are to undergo energy renovations in Denmark. Denmark’s ambition is to in 2050 to halve the energy consumption for heating. One of the real challenges is that the projects mostly deliver disappointing results as to the energy savings. The cases often end up with the question:

-Has the builder delivered the agreed technical energy savings or are the disappointing results due to changes in indoor climate and user behavior?

The IC-Meter concept is developed to handle both challenges and act as competent umpire.

What is IC-Meter?

Indoor Climate Meter (IC-Meter) visualizes and analyses indoor climate in a room or a building. The IC- Meter concept is comprised by a data measurement device, a server and website with APP client for mobile units (IOS/Android). The meter device delivers accurate information for temperature, humidity and – as a new feature on the consumer market – it measures the level of CO2. Measurements are uploaded to the server every 5 minutes, via client’s own WiFi/Internet. The server retrieves automatically local weather forecasts for any place on Earth.

The users gets it all presented on their PC and smartphone. At the same time, data is saved – the “black box” of the building.

20 percent of Danish classrooms have CO2 concentrations at levels where the ability of the children to take rational decisions drop to a ‘dysfunctional’ level

By Ulrik Andersen, Ingeniøren, 16th of April 2013

High CO2 levels in Danish classrooms ruin learning

Even minor CO2 concentrations reduce humans’ ability to perform. This is shown by an American study for which the results were published in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives December 2012.
