NetworkOWL Intuition-pv Plugin  (Indigo Plugin)

Contributed by: Nick Smith

Overview

The NetworkOWL interfaces with a range of sensors from the OWL Intuition family. This plugin extends the Perceptive Automation Indigo Mac home automation application to support the NetworkOwl & the Intuition-pv sensor.

The Intuition-pv sensor provides real-time electricity consumption & solar generation data to the NetworkOWL, which provides the data both to the OWL Intuition cloud application and as a multicast stream on the local network. This plugin joins this multicast stream and updates Indigo device states based on the data received.

Installation

  1. Download the plugin bundle to the Mac running Indigo & unzip it if necessary
  2. Double-click on the NetworkOwl.indigoPlugin file: Indigo will ask if you would like to install it
  3. The plugin’s configuration screen will pop up. Just hit Save to carry on.

Usage

  1. From within the Indigo Devices list, click “New” and create a device representing the Intuition PV. Use the "Plugin" device type and then select "NetworkOwl" as the plugin. Finally, select the "Network OWL IntutionPV sensor" model. 
  2. The configuration screen will be displayed. Enter the MAC address of your NetworkOWL device. This can be found on the label on the back of the NetworkOWL device. Press "Save".
