Quick and dirty web app for testing

09 March 2015

The WattBuddy app that I have been working on with WattB scans residential electric meters with nothing more than an iPhone camera. This gives home owners that don’t have smart meters the ability to track their usage in as much depth as they would like.

During development, I want a way to test the meter reading features in different configurations and that led to the creation of this simple web app. Using very basic HTML and Javascript, I came up with a web app that simply overlays images of dials over a blank image of an electric meter.

Check it out here!

At the top of the page there is a text box and submit button where the meter can be reconfigured to any number between 0000 and 9999. If you’re interested how it works underneath, check out the html source or email me.
