Sensors that post logs

Postby dlmwright » Sun Feb 17, 2013 12:46 pm

Hi,

I'm interested in building something relatively raw - that posts sensor information to a server.

So I could have the device running that connects to the home WIFI (using a PI?) - and then periodically posts:

Temperature
Ambient Light
Audio/Background noise levels..
Humidity

also would be great to put some IAM's and measure power consumption of a cappuccino machine.

Like a home measurement thing - I could plus into COSM or other Sensor boards.

If I could just get one sensor posting I would be happy!

Hi
dlmwright welcome to the forum and I hope you enjoy your stay here.

What you are planning sounds like a nice project and should be straight forward enough (ish) with a R.Pi.

Most of the members here have and use the R.Pi and will be able to help you I'm sure, just keep checking back far any updates that will be posted.

We all love pictures around here so please show off your work with some pics as the project takes shape.
