Building the Things

Look what showed up today while I was at work!

a bunch of sensors, fresh out of the box

I got home and unpacked everything excitedly and then… went and had a nap. Today was exhasting. Then things happened around the house, and I ended up getting back to it all around 10pm… I plugged it all together and now it looks like this:

Currently still working on getting the basics set up. It’s a regular install of Raspbian Buster Lite, with the libraries for the sensors installed from Pimoroni’s enviroplus repo in github. I’m going to make sure the sample scripts work, then I’m heading to bed. Tomorrow I’ll wander over to SparkCC and either build an enclosure for it, or do something completely unrelated. Not sure which is more likely at the moment.
