Monitor Radiator Temperatures with the MCP9808 & #RaspeberryPi | via @MicrochipMakes #piday

Kudos to Microchip for originally sharing this fun project from Learn Addict using our breakout board for the MCP9808 digital sensor for monitoring radiator temperatures:

During the winter season, we spend a lot of money heating our homes. Many heating systems are controlled by a basic thermostat installed in a random part of the home. It’s great to know whether the heating came on once, twice, or three times during the day. If the thermostat has been played with, it could have been on for longer than you require.
I have been monitoring our heating system for several years and this year I decided to improve the wiring. Instead of recycling scraps of wire, I have splashed out on some pretty ribbon cable from DigiKey. I have recently written about the sensors and software that I use. The MicroChip MCP9808 temperature sensor mounted on an AdaFruit breakout board is an excellent choice for the Raspberry Pi.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
