via TweetDeck in reply to voltagex

@voltagex You’ll still not get any spikes that are under 30 seconds, but this should still catch putting the kettle on.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

@voltagex As a second approximation, generate the average of successive samples too, and multiply by 240.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

@voltagex How about just taking the 30-second readings and multiplying by 120 to get kWh, sum over the time range?

via TweetDeck in reply to voltagex

@voltagex Also, Nyquist Sampling Theorem won’t work because your power consumption spikes won’t be anything like a regular waveform.
