So I was seeing everything people did to get pictures and temperature readings and stuff like this out of their units and I tried a few things, like the sensor push, the blink camera, etc. None of them fit the bill entirely so I made my own. It’s all run off of a raspberry pi computer, two sensors, one for ambient temp/humidity, the other for water temp, with an attached camera module.
The little bit of software captures a picture every hour and uploads it to the cloud, so I’ll have a cool log of the grow. It also returns the temperatures and humidity in a format that’s suitable for a web page, so I created a page for it. Take a look, let me know what you think. I’ll share the source, BOM, and schematics if you want.
