From his project site:
Below is some detail regarding the latest project I have been working on. Which is near completion.
I plan to wire it up permanently, place within a case and wall mount it.
Some of the images don’t come up too great in the video, I have included the actual images used [at my site here].
I created a simple one line bash script that polls for the temperature every 5 mins.
The main python program uses pygame to write to the TFT via a framebuffer and Matplotlib is used to create the Graphs.
The display can be changed by either the button on the breadboard or via the remote FOB.
What is being displayed:
- Current Time.
- Last recorded temperature.
- Rotate between time and temperature.
- Graph of recorded temperature for the last 12 hours.
- Graph of recorded temperature for the last 24 hours.
- Graph of recorded temperature for the last 7 days.
To prevent the SD card filling up with data, when started, the user will be prompted to delete data older then 7 days.
