Digital Data from a Cheap Power Meter | Hackaday
Power meters like the Kill-A-Watt are great for keeping track of energy usage, and are also very hackable. The Kill-a-Watt in particular puts out analog signals proportional to current and voltage, which makes it easy to interface with a microcontroller.

Although reading analog voltages is easy enough, [Kalle] found a cheap Chinese power meter that is even more hackable. These inexpensive power meters cost about the same as a first-generation Kill-a-Watt, but they directly stream out digital data. The power meter [Kalle] hacked has a non-US plug, but the meter is available from the usual suppliers (eBay, Aliexpress, etc) with a 3-prong US plug and 120v rating.

After breaking out a logic analyzer, [Kalle] discovered that the meter constantly streams voltage, current, and power data from the measurement board to the display board on a SPI-like bus. The ribbon cable inside the meter even has the clock and data bus lines clearly labelled. [Kalle] went on to reverse-engineer the protocol and write an Arduino sketch that parses the stream, making it even easier to integrate this meter into your next power monitoring project.

During trip to Italy, SCOTT PRUITT dined at a 5-star restaurant with a Cardinal who is a climate change skeptic, even though @EPA staff knew the Cardinal was under investigation for child sex abuse. But they omitted the Cardinal's name from schedules released under FOIA.

Gizmosnack: Power Plug Energy Meter - Now wireless!
This is the second post about my work on the cheap China-style energy meter hack.
My last post covered how I with a logic analyzer successfully (but not in the safest way) sniffed the SPI-transmission on the device and managed to decipher the data. And then how I used an Arduino Nano to do the sniffing for me with an interrupt driven approach. The Arduino  translated the bits and bytes to power and voltage values that it continuously printed on the PC's Serial monitor via an USB-cable.

The next obvious step in this project is to get the energy meter to transmit the data wirelessly. Not only would this mean that I could grab data from several energy meters simultaneously, but it also creates a safe way of debugging the device since my previous setup (which I abandoned after reading some of the comments on Hackaday.com) meant connecting the mains neutral to the computers ground (do not try this at home!!!)

Today's post will cover how I managed to get an Arduino pro mini (3.3V) to sniff the energy meters SPI and transmit the data wirelessly with a nRF24L01+ to an Arduino Nano connected to a computer. The neat thing with this setup is that the Arduino pro mini and the nRF fits perfectly within the casing of the energy meter, and are both driven by the internal power that charges the rechargeable battery that you'll find in the meter.

5 Topics To Master Before Learning React – Frontend Weekly – Medium
Welcome! If you’re reading this, you have probably been told that React is the best thing since the internet. Or maybe you’re a little React curious: you’re coming from another front-end framework like Ember, Backbone, or Angular and wondering if there may be a better way. Perhaps you have thousands of lines of messy code written in jQuery and you know that there must be a better way. Unfortunately, this article will not be making grand statements about how React is the answer to all of your problems. However, you will be getting some suggestions and resources that will help you to build a solid foundation before you dive into the world of React development.
