# Pixometer Binding

This binding connects to the pixometer API, which can manage your meter readings through a native smartphone app.

# Supported Things

This binding supports the following thing types according to the capabilities of pixometer:

Name Type Description
Account Bridge Representation of a pixometer account, which connects to the pixometer API.
Energymeter Thing Provides access to the readings of configured energy meters.
Gasmeter Thing Provides access to the readings of configured gas meters.
Watermeter Thing Provides access to the readings of configured water meters.

The different meter types are pretty similar in basic, but are implemented in parallel to provide Units of Measurement support.
