Stream temperature data from a Raspberry Pi

After experimenting with various sensors and a Raspberry Pi, the next thought is usually how to get the data from the sensor to the outside world. Doing so is quite easy thanks to the connectivity built into a Pi and using a cloud-based data gathering service.

An example of these services is initialstate and they have published a neat tutorial explaining how to stream temperature data from a DS18B20 temperature sensor to their online service.

The hardware connections are simple and should only take a few moments, followed by entering the python code. Then you can review the temperature from afar and share it with others if need be.

For more information about the tutorial and the service, visit the project's website. And for more, we're on facebookGoogle+, and twitter - so follow us for news and product updates as well. 

If you're interested in measuring termperature with a reliable sensor - consider using our TEMP: DS18B20-based temperature sensor module:

The TEMP: uses the Dallas DS18B20 1-wire digital temperature sensor, with a wide measurement range of -55 to +125°C at an accuracy of +/- 0.5°C. For more information, tutorials and to order - visit the TEMP: page
