Do any of you know of a simple (FLOSS) advanced metering software? I am particularly interested on one that can "catch" the wifi signal that is already being sent with my electricity consumption (kwh) to a stand alone device that sits at home. I would like to pick it up on my laptop.
I tried searching online and I only found that there seems to be some set of international standards , a crowd sourcing project that caught my eye  and a science paper .
The project  caught my eye because it makes your home into a smart home. I was very interested by it because the central computer seemed to be gnu/linux. The rest of it is not open source: at the most they said that they might publish some API. This lost my interest because it seems to need acess to your home router and I felt a bit uneasy on this bit.
