What would you say: Build your own Temperatur Measurment with an Raspberry Pi for the server room, buy a smart home solution or an expensive IP Thermometer?
@christopher depends on the price and the time you have ;)
@thomas a professinal IP Thermometer is around 150 Euro... I think i could make a runnable rasperybi for example in under 2,5h what at least should be cheaper for using my time.
Most smart Home thingies are network enabled
@SunDancer That's true. We had an older D Link Smart Hub as Gateway and a Motion Sensor (with Temp.) but you cannot trigger it with IFTTT for example to send an mail. You just can view it... in an app. A Website would at least be scrapable.
@christopher true. It's dangerous to code alone, take this: https://codingworld.io/project/projekt-temperatur-anzeige ;)
@christopher Or, go outside and feel the weather in real time. ;P
@hund translated to my scenario I just should go inside the server room and fell the temperature :D
@christopher Fine, you win! :D
@christopher buy a big porch thermometer and point a webcam at it for maximum laziness
@tomasino haha, yeah, that is a cool idea. But I would need an email alert if the temperature raises to detect malfunction of the air condition.
@christopher BYOT meaning Build Your Own Thermometer.
