Sharing Feature, Share certain values with the public

I would be nice to be able to build a “Public View” page, that lets me share whatever I want with the public. Kind of like my solar output here: https://solar.notallmine.net I did this one myself using my APSystems solar data, but you get the point… No login needed, just a page that we make public for our sense device, no control or anything, view only.

https://pvoutput.org/list.jsp?userid=64862

thats data from my sense system, I also have APS Inverters… :slight_smile:

The sun shines regardless of whether you are home so what you are suggesting could work for the Solar input but as far as usage being public, hmm.

As @danderson suggests, pvouput.org seems to be emerging as the de-facto standard for that.

So there is already sense integration with pvoutput? If not you have to jump through hoops. I want to share the sense data including my homes usage. Not data from my inverters.

Not sure what you mean by sun shines regardless of me being home or not.

If a large group of people make realtime usage data public (or even just you) what’s stopping somebody determining when people are or aren’t home? Some people don’t care about such data linkages but many do.

In general, Sense will always err on the side of Privacy I believe. Toggling a button in the UI to “Make my usage public” (or somesuch), either deliberately or by mistake, is quite different in terms of privacy agreements and underlying privacy admin and security than allowing data export and (self) publication.

Right. That’s why I said a way for us to build a public view. Add what you want to the public dashboard. Add solar, add usage, don’t Turn the public dashboard off if you want. The end user decides.

It’s kind of like. Lock your front door or not the lock manufacturer isn’t on the hook either way.

you need to check out the data analysis group here on the sense forums… https://community.sense.com/c/data-analysis as for how I get my data to pvoutput here is that link, also in the data analysis forum. PVOutput.org Push
