Title: Windows task scheduler: start/stop recording
Post by: admin on August 14, 2017, 10:22:55 pm
In Windows, you can use the Task Scheduler to start and stop recording.

First make sure that UDM can read your meter and can log data using the Log Continuous feature.
Also, use UDM to determine the MAC address of the meter (on the main page).
Then, close UDM.

Enter the start/stop times into the Windows Task Scheduler. Start the task scheduler as follows:

Other ways to get to the Task Scheduler are shown here:

Tasks may not show up in the Task Scheduler library immediately, you may have to close the Task scheduler and re start it.

Then, make another task to stop UDM at a specific time as follows:

The logged files are stored in your log directory, usually located at: C:\ProgramData\Unihedron\logs

The above was tested with Windows 10 and UDM ver.105 (http://unihedron.com/projects/darksky/cd/Windows/).
