Re: Wireless GPIO controll

I get what you want. For the temperature sensor i would recommend the DS18B20, cheap, waterproof (the probe model) and really accurate. I don't know much about the ESP but i know you can hook up the temp sensor, relays etc. Possibly have a simple web page that the pi can connect to, read sensor data...

Re: Best way to display sensor data?

You can use a panel as mention. Say a 7" one or smaller displays of all types, or even LCD style screens. Or just a good old monitor/TV display. If you build a webpage you can just display that on the screen anyway, so best of both worlds? Or you could use online providers like Cayenne who do ...

Best way to display sensor data?

Hey guys,
I experimented with some sensor and stuff, and would like to have a panel with CPU temp, load, DS18B20 and DHT22 etc.
Is a web page better for this or can i build a GUI on the Pi. What is easier ? Thanks!

Re: stepper motor

What about a servo? I dont know much about model rail roads, but i imagine this could be done with a servo. Servos are position aware, so you can place it on the exact location with out limit switches... They are really cheap but i don't know much about controling one with a pi.

Re: Will screens designed for RP 2 work for RP 3 model B

I am pretty sure it will work, i think the display is from adafruit. It works over SPI and as far as i know the foundation didn't change the layout of pins to provide backwards compatibility with the Pi 2 and B+.
