Weather Station + WEB Server + Torrent Server + DLNA Server

Mon Jan 20, 2014 6:23 pm

Hello Guys,

I want to share with you my progress on the Raspberry Pi projects.

I'm quite new on the RPi, but I've done some stuff already.
I've discovered the RPi with a friend, but I had never tried a UNIX system, so I had to learn the basis to work with, but it was quite easy to do everything.

I've made an multiple purpose RPI, like:

Weather Station + WEB Server + Torrent Server + DLNA Server + Samba Server

It took me some time to do everything, but now it is working pretty fine.
Actually, in the beginning, I thought it was too much to the little RPi, but it is working very good so far.



The unfinished project still the Weather Station, but is already working, if someone wants to see.

http://fecosm.no-ip.org

In this station I've bought the sensors on the DealExtreme webpage ( http://www.dx.com ) for something like 15 dollars both.
I've made some graphs using GNUPlot, now i'm working on Maximum and Minimum values of the measurements and the next move is to implement a webcamera taking snapshots of the weather.
I live on the south of Brazil, now it's summer time here, so the temperatures are quite high.



I'm not at home right now, so i do not have all the scripts and codes, but below you can find some posts that I used to do my servers.

If someone got interested on anything I did, I can explain further, just leave me a message!

hi...im lili.. :D i have a somewhat similar project as you have.. but what im doing is on ultrasonic sensor, a rain gauge and a webcam. in my plan, they should be integrated together as one. im really new to this raspberry pi and i know there are endless possibilities u can do with this board. although i have already worked my ultrasonic sensor, thanks to Matt Hawkins python script, and i know i can also run the camera and the rain gauge, i m not sure though if i can put all these 3 projects and run them all in one setting. if its possible, how? i also need to have a site where i can display and put the outputs of these projects. your site by the way honestly needs improvement, hehehe.. visually, but of course its a huge achievement that you have made that i know it wasnt easy to make.. and i dont even know where to start however i will continue reading and watch tutorials.. so far your post is the only one same as mine.. regarding these things, can you help me with my project? id really appreciate your reply.. you can email me at [email protected] im looking forward working with you. :D

Hi,

What is your choice of ultrasonic wind sensor?

its not an ultrasonic wind sensor.. only ultrasonic sensor used to measure distance.. i used the US-100 model because its the only available sensor here in my country. it has still the same output as used by Matt Hawkins http://www.raspberrypi-spy.co.uk/2013/0 ... on-part-2/ can someone help me on how to fetch the readings ive gathered from the sensor to a database like sqlite3?

Hi Lili,

Yes for sure, you can run all the 3 projects in one setting, but we need more information about the projects codes and what exactly you mean with "one setting", did you mean all the three projects in the same script?

The site is easy to do, you can follow the http://www.penguintutor.com/linux/light-webserver tutorial, after it will create a directory called " /var/www " where you must put the index.hml file.
My site is not good on visual i know, but this is on purpouse as well, to make it light to load ( i access it very often using my cellphone on 3G, and here at Brazil the 3G connection is very expensive to afford).

Regarding the database, I honestly don't know almost anything on it, I'm using a simple text file to save my data, each reading per line, and after I use the programs to search on this file and show the info.

I'm not all the time available to work with RPI ( i'm doing a master's degree course) but everything that I can help I'll try to ;)

Hi !

Could you share your code for the weather station. How do you transfer your data to a web page ?

Thanks !
