    Raspberry Pi Terrarium Controller

    Just came across this. Has anyone used one of these before? Seems like something I'd be interested in. I have a Pi running my 3D Printer and my homemade BBQ smoker.

    Re: Raspberry Pi Terrarium Controller

    While I havenít used one, I did look into it as a way to monitor the humidity/temps in my rack. I wanted something that could monitor and send me mobile alerts if something was out of range. Itís definitely something Iím interested in.

    I use SensorPush. Works great. But you need the WI-FI gateway if you are going to get alerts away from home.

    This looks neat but it didn't seem to control anything just monitor. I'm interested in the Total control and monitoring. But thanks for the info.

    Sorry. I missed that.

    Let us know what you find.

    All my thermostats are all redundant and I rarely travel, and if I do, have a house sitter. So I can tell them how to adjust them.

    Checking these links later! I have a Pi sitting around collecting dust, may be worth looking in to

    I just installed it on a Raspberry Pi 2B i had laying around and it was pretty straight forward. Had to search for the default admin password for TerrariumPi which is "password" by the way. so I could change it. Now i am ready to breadboard connections when they arrive. I ordered a 5 pack of temp probes and a 2 pack of temp/humidity probes. Will start there and then try to get dimmer control for heat working.
