It evaluates frequency of any LED which flashes.
It can be used with your electricity meters which flash every time as a Watt Hour is consumed.
It requires an old smartphone with cam, it must be fixed on the device.
The duration of this light pulse is small and around 20ms.
The frequency of pulses is proportional to the electrical consumption.
Frequency is analyzed to take into account the occasional failures of the camera.
Image is fully analysed periodically to perform a 'remanence' calibration to take into account slow luminosity fluctuations.
This application can be used by old smart phone and it used phone'cam.
This application includes a webservice, so any internet browser can be used to follow-up consumption.
Json Response Widgets can be installed on a second phone to show the consumption on your phone' wallpaper.
