This is an extremely brief overview of the temperature/ humidity datalogger I built for my dad with Python.

All the code can be found on my Github repository here.

So my dad is currently building the coolest house I’ve ever seen, and he wanted to track the temperature and humidity flow throughout the structure. The house is double-walled, super-insulated, heated with a wood gasification boiler, the hot water comes fromĀ  a heat-pump water heater, and it completely conforms to the PassiveHaus standard. This is all well and good, but we had to incorporate some open-source technology into the project or it wouldn’t be complete.

I ended my college experience with a Python-based computer science class, and loved every second of it. For my final project, I decided I wanted to integrate an Arduino with Python. I also wanted to useĀ  Gdata (Google Spreadsheets Service) to store the information, and I wanted to build a front-end GUI with Tkinter (not the best looking or easiest service to use). This project is the result, and the functionality is demonstrated with the video.

 

 

Part of my code is below:
