This month has been extremely busy so time for blogging has been tight.
Here is a quick update of what is going on with the heating and associated projects:
There is now currently a book in the works covering some of the topics on this website using a new technology available for the raspberry Pi. I won’t give too much away in this post, other than to say, if you are interested in the subjects blogged about here, then this is a book for you. More details on this as I can release them.
Change in temperature
As October has rolled in, the temperature has started to drop. This is perfect timing for testing one of my first thermostats – the thernet model. More on this thermostat in a separate post to follow
Over the next couple of months I will be sourcing the hardware to set up my permanent Postgres DB server. If you followed my earlier post on the prototype DB server I showed how we can set up a Postgres DB for storing temperature readings and then query it with HTSQL. Going forward I will document the setting up process of the actual production server, the database architecture and HTSQL server configuration. All of code will be available via BitBucket which leads me too….
I will be setting up a BitBucket account where you can download copies of the bash scripts, code and documentation for your own projects.
Index/ToC page for the blog
Expect to see an Index/ToC page for the blog. This will provide a page where posts are grouped by topic and thread, so you can read a set of posts on a particular subject in logical order when working on that aspect of your heating system.
There are some posts in line discussing:
- MagPi – the Raspberry Pi fanzine
- Arduino visual display components – a comparison of TFT and LCD components for thermostats
- Some good books worth reading
- X10 – A look at the X10 standard, thanks to stillwaternc for the discussion on this over on the About page.
So keep your eyes on this space for more posts to come.
