hi,

hope i've put this in the right place Smile

i'm interested in remote monitoring my scorpion and wondered if anyone has any advice about good software/techniques etc? i noticed on this post
sm6xvz has got temperature/humidity data and thought i could combine with webcam/motion detecting, all accessible online.

what can i say, i love metadata.

any help appreciated,

thanks.

Hi there...

Technology is fun Razz
I have now disconneted all online sensors. Reson for that was the computer has to be on all the time and I find out that was not so logical in my wallet....

The stuff I used was 1-wire sensors from Texas

I built everything by myself at work, so it was 2 temperature sensors and a hygrometer

run a program in the PC to log and publish all to my website

ofcourse I also had an LCD display above the terrarium who show me the current valvues

sorry my English spelling is not the best

thanks for your reply and the links sm6xvz,

hadn't thought about the cost, that's a good point! i think i'll give it a trial and see how it goes.

and as for your english - a) its far better than my swedish b) i'm a primary school teacher and its better than some other teachers i know Smile

thanks again.
