IDEA

Indoor weather map

In the Collaborizm office we have to email someone to turn on and off the AC.

Got me thinking why not just deploy a network of sensors and when the temperature gets too high or low, the system can just fire off an automated email.

Not a big deal for us in the office, but a indoor weather map could also be used by hospitals, schools or any other building with an antiquated HVAC system.

How would you guys suggesting building this?

Collaborizm T-Shirt to the best idea 😃

Hi, it’s a nice idea to have this kind of weather maps. A fully automatic temperature control would be very helpful in the process of preparing wines. The data collection side would be quite straightforward and it’s already been mentioned in this thread.
I’d like to add on a couple of points to this idea.

  • If we have a fixed set point and send emails based on that, there may be a lot of frequent mails and it may not be convenient for the operator. Instead we can observe the pattern at which the request comes and have a chart the updates regularly as reference for the operator. However sending an email could be done at a fixed frequency (which is low) and only if required.
  • Displaying the current temperatures of all the rooms on a single display would also be good.

Since the above features are totally on the software side, provided that we have the sensor data. They could be implemented in the phase 2 of the project. Phase 1 could include acquiring the sensor data and some simple notification.
