I am a noob. Sorry about that. Am currently learning the basics of Python and I have a few Rpi's around at home. I'm also building a house. Out of straw.
I have had a pretty reasonable look through all the posts I could see that would relate but I think inexperience in this area is making this complicated for me.
What I will be wanting to do in the not so distant future is to place maybe 10 moisture sensors into the walls of my house - as it will have walls predominantly made of straw this won't be too dificult but what I would really like is some general opinions on how people would collect, store and process the data. My eventual plan would be to have a real-time knowledge of damp areas within the straw but also have a substantial amount of data that I can plot for trend analysis etc.
So - what sensors would you guys use? Would you write your own program in Python (as I am thinking)? What am I completely missing?
I could, of course, go about this using established Windows software I have seen - but I was given 10 Raspi Zero W a few months back and it sounds like a fun project.
Thoughts, if you don't mind, please?
