Talking with @hicksu about sensor data and automation for the space using PIR motion sensors.

Raspberry Pi can be used as a controller with:

Automation is fun, could assist with shutting or opening the space, help collect some metrics for fundraising, and other cool concepts.

Space Heater left on all night

I have some extra PIR sensors if people want some

What other kinds of sensors do we want?

Perhaps voltage monitoring, temperature, humidity.

It would be amazing to open and close at least part of the space from Earl access control!


the bigger challenge is switching the amount of power involved, which is non-trivial for a room full of high current equipment

I’ve got some experience with Snips on the RPi if anyone wants to talk about their ideas.
