Logging for Sensor Networks

Deploying network enabled sensors based on ESP32, ESP8266, and Raspberry Pi requires a way to monitor them. I’ll describe how to implement this, using InfluxDB and Grafana. Logs stored on the devices and serial based logging are not valid options. Some of the sensors sit in inaccessible placed. Generally it’s impractical to physically having to…

ESP8266, BME280, CCS811 Sensor Build

The first sensor array will consist of an ESP8266 with a BME280 and a CCS811. As I described in AirPatrol the upstairs sensor array, called Chase, is a downscaled version of Marshall for added monitoring. It is the simplest of my three sensor arrays with fewest sensors. Therefore, it is also ideal as my first build….

AirPatrol – Environment Monitors

The goal of AirPatrol is to build a sensor array to monitor environment parameters in my home. These are the requirements. In a household with a 4 year old and a 6 year old making them relate to the project is a good way to get them engaged. Thus, the project naming was inspired by…
