Project WeatherCubeOne
« on: August 16, 2015, 11:37:03 »
Hi all,

find here http://www.rwblinn.de/144k1t2.htm the first Prototype of a simple Weatherstation which I have called WeatherCubeOne. The Cube is not fully ready yet as few tweaks required, but running fine.
Hardware
  • Raspberry Pi 2 Model B.
  • TinkerForge: Master Brick, Barometer Bricklet, Temperature Bricklet, Humidity Bricklet.
  • MakerBeam aluminum profiles.
Software

Does domoticz has some easy way to access TF components?
I see it has some nicer interface then openhab that is installed by default on the red brick.

Hi,

I have been exploring openHAB as a starter, but experienced complex to use. Then searched for alternatives and ended up with Domoticz (open source, rather active community & developments, open api, devices easy to setup via browser, action triggers, graphs with export function ... ).
Unfortunate there are no TinkerForge bindings for Domoticz, but you can use the Domoticz api to define/read/write devices. This is done via http command (which I use via a B4J Server Application = read Bricklets)
Go here for www.domoticz.com/wiki/Domoticz_API/JSON_URL's.

PS: The WeatherCubeOne has been updated today - look www.rwblinn.de. The source code for the B4J Server Application is included.
