AMEErealtime and AMON


AMEErealtime is a data storage and management platform for sensors/meters/monitoring device data. It has a RESTful, web-based API for storing and retrieving this data using the AMON open data format.

With thousands of sensors currently sending in data every 5-minutes, AMEErealtimeĀ provides a “big data” storage solution that scales to meet any demand you need for electricity, temperature, humidity, and related environmental data. See our Case Study with the Energy Savings Trust for an example.

The service includes data aggregation services to simplify analytics and reporting, and since it uses a simple API, it’s easy to integrate with the rest of AMEE’s services to enable carbon calculation.

Key features

  • High-volume: time-stamp data down to per-second resolution
  • Any type of sensor (electricity, water, temperature, humidity, etc.)
  • Any number of sensors (support for metering and sub-metering)
  • Data storage and management scale to Terabytes and beyond
  • Automatic data aggregation to simplify analysis and reporting
  • Simple API, cloud-based, horizontally scalable
  • See API documentation

Given the broad range of use-cases, AMEErealtime is priced on a case-by-case basis.

About AMON

AMON is an open data format suitable for the description and exchange of any sensor/metering/monitoring device data. AMON is available to be used, free of charge, by anyone who has a need to describe or exchange, in a computer readable format, metering or monitoring device data.

The AMON standard has been primarily developed by AMEE with the assistance of a number of other parties in the metering/monitoring device industry. If you would like to participate in the further development of the AMON standard, please see Contributing to AMON.

The use of AMON is not limited to AMEE’s services, and a key aim of the AMON data format is to advocate an open way of describing and exchanging metering/monitoring data that is independent of any API or system. The use of AMON in metering/monitoring devices and/or other systems is encouraged.
