Following on from our post on getting historic Hive heating data here: https://www.digitaltechnologylabs.com/2017/12/09/temperature-data-from-hive, I had another go and was able to extract the data again. However, I found that the process still did in fact work, which I’m very happy about.

Actual Hive heating data shown here

Here is the data for November.

And then I got the temperature (Actuals) in my area during that time. And then, I compared the inside temperature to the outside temperature.

Min outside temp vs inside temperature

Min outside temp vs inside temperature

Max outside temp, versus inside temperature

Max outside temp, versus inside temperature

Both suggest that the temperature in the house remains quite stable, even on the coldest days.

Monitoring temperature and expenditure wish list:

  1. Correlate that with the gas spend on those days.
  2. Automatically pull in the heating data from HIVE and spend.
  3. Automatically pull in the temperature data (actuals)
  4. In fact that would make a cool project over christmas to make a Raspberry Pi temperature monitor to go outside, and post the results to an endpoint for me!

And if you’ve already done any of the above we would love to hear from you!
