I bought one as well although I didn't do anything yet, would you mind share what you did/recommend doing? I was thinking to make a temperature sensor monitoring device, as I have an arduino that is doing the job now



a temperature sensor was actually my first use of it (and i will continue to build a couple as remote sensors) - basically, i've been adding more and more sensors just to see how much it could take.

now, i'm having to build out PCB's to support everything (including the voltage regulators to 3.3v and 5v), as i've outgrown breadboards.


Thanks, that is my plan too, add as many sensor as I could! For the moment I have a microphone, a water level and a couple of temperature sensors waiting for a microcontroller.

Could you link a couple of links to resources you found useful? I haven't look at it properly but when I try to search I was a bit confused and not sure on where to start

using the arduino environment, i had a circuit up reporting temperature in less than 5 minutes.


Hey @jerrysievert, this is Omer from Cesanta. Great to hear that Smart.js worked for you. Would you mind sharing a bit more on your project? I can be reached at omer at cesanta.com Thanks and best of luck!


thanks! I didn't know about Cesanta so I made my own from scratch, but it is very bulky.


I've made motion sensors (still slightly buggy) and a small circuit to start my laundry machine remotely. I might do temp/humidity monitoring for a specialized application at some point.
