Re: Simple A to D to monitor voltage

No, I hit a stumbling block... lack of knowledge. That and there is a $10 ebay digital current meter that I used instead, no pi interface though. I got a system up and running to monitor my solar powered stuff. I have not had much time to document it. But you might want to check out the adafruit.co...

Re: Simple A to D to monitor voltage

Karlos13, did you manage to put together everything? Can you give a description on your setup?

I have similar needs, but I am still to find a decent solution, I am electronics newbie too (well some background I have).

Re: What board to get for my project(s)?

To answer myself, maybe best way to go is to get Piface and 1-wire interface. This is what I am planning to buy: http://www.partco.biz/verkkokauppa/product_info.php?cPath=2153&products_id=3261 And for 1-wire: http://www.partco.biz/verkkokauppa/product_info.php?cPath=2153&products_id=3632 The...

Re: RPi to turn on and off wall socket.

It would be easier, I'm sure. But the aim is to learn while I tinker. So removing the need to understand the circuitry kinda eliminates part of the purpose of the project. Not to mention I have a limited budget to work with. Tellstick does sound like something I could end up using later on, however...

Re: Tellstick and more automation

Yes indeed this is interesting. This really would take away the pain from tinkering and soldering.. However, does the software that manufacturer provides, come with command line commands as well? I guess it would be easy to write some python myself (easy is relative with my almost zero python experi...

Re: RPi to turn on and off wall socket.

Have you heard of Tellstick? It is a product that allows computer to control wall sockets remotely. It basically just replaces the remote controller. Check: http://www.telldus.se/products/tellstick Aah.. well there is a discussion about it already here: http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.ph...

What board to get for my project(s)?

Hello all. I have an off-grid cabin in the middle of woods, where I produce electricity by means of solar panels, wind mill and a gasoline powered generator. I have couple of cameras that I use to see what is going on, how is the weather and so on. The system tends to work well, but I am still worki...

Re: Huawei E323 3G Dongle (3 network)

Well, I thought it is useful for others to share my experiences with Rpi and Huawei E353. I struggled for a while with the dongle and latest wheezy. To get it working, what I did was basically just: -Install usb modeswitch (sudo apt-get install usb-modeswitch) -Edit /etc/network/interfaces and add t...
