methods to calculate data flow To & From Imp over a fixed period. i am thinking of placing an imp in a remote position. Power is available, but no wifi, so i thought about a dedicated powered/battery prepaid module. i can get a unit for about $15 per month, with 1 gigabyte included data. I know the imp would not use that amount, but as an exercise, i would like to try and calculate how much data would be consumed. I have an imp 01 , with a ds18b20 on uart12, and 1 ds18b20 on uart57, sending the temperatures to thingspeak, at the rate of 1 reading per 3 minutes for each sensor, so ( 20/ hour, 480/day, ) X 2, = 960 readings total per day. The expected temperature range is about -5C to about 35C . Thingspeak logs the 2 temperatures as seperate graphs, and also combines them into 1 nice graph, indoor/outdoor temperatures What are the implications of just running the unit with code, (send data, wakeup, send data wakeup etc). I am not logging data to the imp server, as i have a 16/2 line LCD connected, so can see the readings on the LCD display. Any good tools/ software available to see the data flow up/down for a PC. I have no idea how much data such a setup would consume, in a day or month, any input from forum members welcome. TOM.
I had the device logging last night, but it is tethtered to my mobile for wifi, so when i get a more permanent setup, i could post the imp code and the thingspeak link if anyone is interested. 0.5 C outside last night at 3 am. Sydney Australia, (middle of winter).
