I'm really excited to show the completed project to my fellow readers. For the wrap-up post I made a GUI with Python and Tkinter to collect and display all the beacons data. In the video, two beacons are connected providing Temperature, Humidity and Battery Level feedback regularly.     The Python program that reads all the sensor's data uses the functionality which I developed and explained in a previous blog post.   To capture the events in the video, I modified the RSL10 fi ...
With the technical side of the project progressing well, I started 3-D printing some enclosures for the RSL10 Beacons -honestly I always find an excuse to add 3D printed parts to my projects. At this point I got creative and came up with various types of enclosures. 3D Print settings Below the settings used in Cura: Printer: Creality CR-10S Material: PLA White Infill: 20%, Gyroid Adhesion: Skirt Supports: No Layer height: 0.2mm   Assembly There is not a lot to say here but let's men ...
In my previous entry, I demonstrated how the Debug probe revealed the Request and Response data flowing to and from the RSL10-Sense BTLE device and a python script that I wrote to visualize the services and characteristics available. In this entry, I'm going to show you how to request sensors data with Python and how I effectively read the Beacon response. Custom Service Request Token Node Handler Custom Service Response Token Data Type Sensor Value Collecting ...
After a brief introduction about this project, it is time to know more in detail about our RSL10 device. BTLE devices can reveal quite useful information which I planned to understand first in order to progress with the project. Since I'm planning to use a Raspberry Pi 4 to act as a hub for all the beacons, I wrote a Python program that allowed me to do just that; gather all the information available, in fact, such program turned out to be very useful as I was able to use it to debug my progress ...
Regularly, most of the electricity at home is consumed by heating and cooling with the caveat that not all the rooms have the same temperature. There are some key factors that may contribute to these temperature differences like how many sources of heat are present in the room, the level of insulation and the location of the room. For example, considering that the hot air tends to rise if there is a basement available, it tends to be cooler than let's say the bedrooms -if these are located on th ...
