EKM Push Communications
Your Meter Data on the Web, Free.
We are proud to introduce an entirely new communication system with unprecedented capabilities, and featuring plug-and-play integration. It is designed it to work in conjunction with our EKM Omnimeter v.3 meters, in order to maximize their functionality and readability. All you have to do is plug it in; the EKM Push gateway handles all of the meter communication, parses the meter data, and inserts the reads into a central database. This completely eliminates all of the issues of configuring firewalls, dealing with dynamic IP addresses, and having a computer running all the time to make it happen. Data is available seamlessly and immediately and can be accessed from anywhere in the world. Up to 256 EKM Omnimeter v.3 meters can be daisy chain connected to each EKM Push on up to 4000 feet of wire. The entire system has been designed to be a robust, reliable, accurate metering system, with an easy plug-and-play installation. We believe that we have designed a rock-solid metering and data communication system that is reliable, scalable, and economical. This system is perfect for monitoring personal energy use, rental units, campground spaces, or solar/wind energy generation. We have designed this system to give you the kind of reliability you need to build your business around. The EKM Push system does NOT currently support our new EKM Omnimeter Pulse v.4. We are working to add this functionality but is not yet implemented.
There is nothing like this available. We believe the EKM Push and the EKM Push Pro will be the backbone of the next generation of metering. They represent a whole new paradigm for meter data communications.
Our intent is to provide you with FREE, seamless, and unrestricted access to your meter data in real time. You can then use your data in ways that serve you best, whether it be logging for billing purposes or dashboards to track your energy use and/or generation. We will provide some basic software user interfaces However, our intent is not to get into the software business but to offer the most robust and capable hardware system available, with a focus on data access. If you decide that you want more interface options than we provide, you will be able to retrieve your data from our database on a regular schedule and use it in any way you choose. Once it is confirmed that you have received your data it is automatically deleted from our server.
EKM Push Open Energy API:
Now you can very easily access the EKM Push Data using the EKM Dash software. All you need is your EKM Push User Key and your Omnimeter number. You can use the EKM Dash to then create emails, generate .csv files, and store an unlimited number of meter reads in your local EKM Dash database.
For examples of the EKM-Push's capabilities you can look at our widget here:

A good meter to check out; EKM-Omnimeter #: 10068
These are rudimentary graphs meant to convey the abilities of this new system.
You can change the number of reads to 360 or 720 to see more history

Developers: Please see the Developer Portal for APIs and meter communication protocols
Linux command line or Mac OSX Terminal (this is for 300 reads from EKM-Omnimeter 10068, this is useful for developers):
Create your own request:
curl http://io.ekmpush.com/**your Omnimeter Number here**~**number of reads requested**.xml?**your User Key here**
The EKM Push Pro Gateway ships with a 12 volt DC power supply with US plug wall socket connection

Third Party Energy Apps:
Develop software applications using EKM Push Open API data and we will post them here
PVOutput.org: Have PVOutput.org collect your meter data directly from your EKM Push account. No need to have a computer running on your end to send the data. Send energy consumption or production data, compare your solar system to others, see your data over time, set up alerts, and more. Check out this EKM Push to PVOutput.org Sample Data.
For instructions on how to create an account on PVoutput.org and set it up to pull your EKM Push data from our cloud database, download our instruction sheet here: Push to PVoutput.org
