Arduino/Linux Interface to 1-Wire Digital Thermometers

about | plot | data

This unit is on the floor of the basement office, on a short leash to the server running
ham radio software.

The sensor is mounted in the mini prototyping socket first used to test 1-wire devices. 

This sensor is the reference to which we compare new sensors when we add them
to our sensor network. New sensors are placed in the socket next to this
sensor and observed for several hours, long enough to notice first-order

This sensor is mouned on the side of my bedroom nightstand. It is close to an
outside wall. 

This unit is placed outside the basement window at the end of a steel tube that holds
the sensor several feet away from the house.

This unit is mounted on the first step of the stairs behind my
favorite chair.

Here we have a CdS photocell measuring the light level in the basement. Rather
than use the one-wire mechanism, here we use a dedicated Arduino at the sensor
and communicate back to the data recording through http protocol.
