Data Image Show

Maybe using a webcam and a few sensors and the apropriate software we could create both a data log and an images log, so that people could look at what's going on in Harvey's solaroof greenhouse.


As a visitor, I'd like to see the following:

  • A not-too high-resolution image of what Harvey's solaroof greenhouse looks like right now (updated perhaps every minute or more).
  • Links to what it looked like 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 minutes ago.
  • Links to what it looked like 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 hours ago.
  • Links to same with multiples of some other time scale.
  • A set of numbers showing what's the present data for temperature (inside and outside), humidity (same), light intensity (same), etc.
  • A chart showing how these variables have changed over time in the past few hours and in the past few days.


Resources needed:

  • Software like might help, but it would have to be adapted to the task and location.
  • Money to buy sensors, one or more webcams, etc. Information is apreciated.
  • Labor and time.
  • Links to people who may have done the same thing elsewhere.
