Thanks for the interest in this, trial @ChrisB @deanjames

For me to get you added to our list of future volunteers (there's currently an ongoing trial using the early volunteers) I'll need a PM with your account number, name and DoB. The details of these future trials are unconfirmed.

Currently we're sending our new In Home Displays, and building an API, to allow the volunteers access to their usage data for their own smart home integrations. We are then collecting feedback from them as it progresses.

I'm sorry for the lack of contact about future trials @sam_cat - we appreciate your support and patience, and will be in contact when we know more details.

There are some of us that have been on the list for quite a while and there has been no further news on access, so dont hold your breath... There are other small startup providers that are really embracing making all this 'open' to those who are capable.
hi, Guys,

May I request access. Part of the reason I joined OVO was this very forum article. Whilst I am not on-board yet, on Oct 5 I switch and Oct 20th is my smart meter installation, I am keen to get access to this data as I am looking to create multiple apps that I can query with Alexa, integrate with home-assistant etc. I am keen to try and pre-empt energy usage based on weather, historical heating settings from the thermostat etc. and Shift hours. And finally, break down energy usage by correlating the information from my smart plugs.

There are probably loads of ideas out there for this type of data and it is great to see OVO embracing this way of working. As more third-party products come out with their own exposure, OVO will be seen as a leader and will hopefully bring more customers to you as a side benefit.

Can't wait to see what comes of this.

I had a booking for my smart meter yesterday but i was told no useful information could be gathered from the SMET1 and i needed SMET2 is this correct ?

Please can i be advised and if possible to pull statistics from SMET 1 and what type of information can be gathered from the API. I plan on writing a .py module that can be used within my home automation hub "homeassistant" this is the missing component of my home monitoring for me

Regards

Hey there, I've just signed up as part of the community to see if I can join in on the trials - would you mind adding me if I send the required PM?

Thanks!

Hi Lucy / Tom,

Am I too late to be added into the API trial ?

Has anyone got any datasets yet ?

Thanks
Steve


I think you may have missed the first ones but can add you to the other list. Just pop me a private message with your name, DoB and OVO account number. :)

Great stuff guys! We can add you to a list for any future trials.

@johnk @jadam @Fordy - can you guys send me a private message with your name, DoB and OVO account number?

Lucy
Me too, can I be part of the trial? I'd like it to integreate with home automation- particularly real time data, to know when I'm exporting energy so have 'spare energy available' to turn on other things...
I'd also be interested. Mainly in just being able to access the historical data via CSV or similar. That should be pretty straightforwards to add I would have thought.
Hi,

Would it be possible to add me to the API trial?

Hello -

I came to the forums looking for API information so I'd like to be included in the trial too.

Hi @Tim_OVO

Count me in please! I have a home automation system that I have worked on using several different APIs and would love to include gas/electric consumption too


Sounds like a plan, @AKWillows - I'll PM you now to get you added to our list!

Hi Guys

I would very much like access to your live data trial.
We are currently looking at building an Alexa skill to support OVO energy usage.

How can I apply for access?


I'll send you a PM now to get your details @maccordingley 🆒

Hey guys,

Not sure if you are still looking for beta testers of the API but we just had our smart meters installed today and I would love to play around with the data from our house to do some data visualisation.

Let me know what you need from me.

Thanks,

Alex


I'd love to get access to a data API as well. How "live" is it?

So then @alexbaulch @Random - I'll need your account number, name and DoB via a PM to get you added to our live data trial. I'll send you a PM now to get this thread started.

Thanks,
Tim

Hi!

I would love to have access to the live trial! I am developing a MagicModule to gather info about your home (heating, etc) and this would be great!

Cheers,

Rick


Hi Tim, can you add me to your trial list please?

Thanks!


Hi Both,

If you PM Tim or myself your full name, account number and date of birth, we can add you to the trial.

Thanks,
Max
