I've had a pi for a fair while and done nothing with it until yesterday when I got stuck in and now have a usb webcam hooked up to Motion which is working great.
I'm then accessing the lastsnap.jpg from my mac mini which is my home automation server running Indigo.
So....next project is temperature sensing. I have a few one wire temp sensors on their way to me and i've seen a few guides online on how to hook these up.
What i'm looking to do is for the pi to read the temperature every x minutes, ideally every 2 minutes or so, and then to put to a url as follows:
http://192.168.1.28:8176/variables/temp ... t&value=22
where temp_landing is the name or id associated with the specific temperature sensor and 22 is the temperature reading.
This then sets the variable within the home automation software on the mac mini and allows me to take actions based on the temperatures.
I'm an absolute beginner with the pi's, I can ssh, just about find my way around but know next to nothing about scripting etc although I can search google and read guides with the best of them!!
If anyone could offer me any pointers to guides on how to achieve what i'm after this would be a massive help and i'd be very very grateful.
