In this installment we are going begin wrapping the build up by moving everything from  the breadboard, to a prototyping PCB, and then placing it all into an enclosure. Then we will wrap everything up with a demonstration of the final code. There will be one more installment after this one, which will include actual data from Halloween night. I will also finalize the bill of materials in the final post as well.     The Parts  ...
