Hi, I'd like to commission a project - but I'm not sure if these is even possible!
What I would like is a small unit that has the capability to record gas meter readings from a rotating dial type gas meter see attachment for typical gas meter.
The unit would have a camera that can be mounted facing the gas meter and be battery powered.
It would then take a photo every 5 minutes or so and save the photo with a time and date stamp.
the next best thing would be for the unit to be able to translate that photo into a csv file to save me having to go through it and turn the images into spreadhseet entries.
If someone can build and programme the unit I can build a housing.
Let me know if you have any questions - I'm UK (bristol) based.
