Polling frequency of gas usage

Postby hapeter » Thu Jan 13, 2022 11:23 pm

I'm sure this has been asked before, but I couldn't find it on the forum: Is it possible to increase the polling frequency for gas usage? Or is this a limitation of how the P1 hardware works? The gas data seems to come in at 1 hour intervals, while the electricity data comes in at much lower intervals.
I'd like to make a sensor that monitors gas usage for hot tap water only.

Might be your meter. When I look at Home Assistant I'm getting an update every 5 minutes from my gas sensor. Power updates are coming in every 10 - 20 seconds.

Since the gas meter is wireless connected to the p1 electrical meter is uses some battery. When the polling interval is short it will drain the battery.

That makes a lot of sense oepi-loepi and for sure the gas distribution company is avoiding the cost of exchanging those batteries. I found a user manual of the gas meter: Landis+Gyr G350. It says the gas meter sends the usage information once an hour, so it must be fixed.

Thanks for sharing your experience yjb. Your gas meter must be a more fancy type.
