Energy Meter - Pulse Power Meter - Webthings @Type

I’m using the Pulse Power Meter from MySensors - which counts the led impulses from the Grid Power Meter export led. Given these are whenever a 1kw is imported. The webthings adapter for mysensors (candle) pushes to Webthings.

I’m looking for a @type and associated icon png for a Power Meter. I’m keen to show the icon on the ‘Things page’ as a meter similar to the thermometer for my temperature readings. At the moment it displays “Thing” and I need to click on the splash to get the value.

The metrics coming through are Watts (InstantaneousPowerProperty) and kwh as (number).

Is there a type called EnergyMeter or PowerMeter that could display display a nice grid power meter graphic - or even a meter icon would do …

You’ll want to use EnergyMonitor.

Thank you for the quick reply - I’ll give it a go and report back

PS: I’m testing out the Kafka Bridge adapter - think this would be a way of loading up to a data lake for long term storage and power analysis away from the monitoring systems
