Husdata datalogger for heat-pump
I got this husdata datalogger for my heat-pump.
It plugs in to a 3.5mm audio-connector inside the electronics box of the pump. On an IVT geo 312C pump it's fairly easy to install by removing the big front cover, then a smaller black cover, and then opening the electronics-box. I routed the wire into the pump via a tube-hole at the top, and then through the cable-hole of the electronics box (lower right). It plugs into a 3-wire 'BBT' interface.
The datalogger reads info from the pump and broadcasts it over wifi either to the husdata-website or over MQTT to any compatible device.

Mowing season end
In 2018 the automower worked for 516 hours. By October 2019 the count is at 960 hours, so it has worked 444 hours during the 2019 season.
The outer shell is removable - so all the grass clippings can be cleaned off...
Time for a winter break, back to work in May 2020.
