Grafana is the answer to the nagging question we’be been asking ourselves over the years – how to quickly and nicely present our data gathered from devices. InfluxDB on the other hand is the database that is as easy and simple to use, thus making it an ideal candidate for this job.
Let me show you how to quickly and easily put our data from domoticz and other devices to InfluxDB and then using Grafana – display in much more useful way than default domoticz graphs do.
What will we need?
- bash scripts
- Raspberry Pi – 4B+
- OPTION: Raspberry Pi A/B/B+ lub Zero (armv6)
- OPTION: A different ARM based micro-computer (i.e.: OPi PC” rel=”noopener” target=”_blank”>Official Store – OrangePi PC using CPU H3/H2/H5) – they could be cheaper. It’s also entirely possible to use x86 computer with Debianem, but it’s going to eat way more than 4-6W when using ARM based. Here I used finally Orange Pi PC with latest armbian distribution, tested first on latest Raspberry Pi 2
