Sorry if this is somewhere to read or described in docs.
I am new here and see screenshots of dashboards and other explanations.
But when I look for a “How To Start”, it describes how I can drag various components into a development environment and that brings me to my question:
Is OpenEMS more a framework with which you then can develop your own logic? or is OpenEMS a installable software that uses an abstraction layer to allow users to include and categorise your hardware - and then use logic that is already existing?
or asked the other way round:
- I don’t know JAVA
- I can at most rudimentarily adapt existing code
- I have a PV system with battery, various smarthome and “dumb” devices and a wallbox for my EV
- I would like to integrate these components with modest scripting effort and first of all
** create a dashboard that visualises the electricity consumption
** then activate or adapt various logics that trigger my controllable consumers depending on the PV yield.
Is this a task for OpenEMS? or do I have to develop my use cases JAVA on top of OpenEMS?
