In this series of posts we show how a Raspberry Pi 4 can be used to create a personal cloud solution that is managed using Ansible and Docker — powerful tools that are used by many large scale cloud platforms, which automate configuration tasks and provide containerisation for applications.


This application can listen to your (Dutch) Smartmeter with a P1 connector, and send the data to several outputs.
