This is semi-OT but I am curious to know what temperature/humidity/flood
sensors everyone out there has experience with.
I am looking for something to use at home, but I would like to stay away
from WiFi and smart home devices. Basically, I am looking for something
simple, which plugs into Ethernet, and makes its data available via HTTP
and/or telnet (or any other simple text-based protocol). If it includes
some other fancy features (e.g., sending email alerts, SNMP traps, etc.)
then that is OK too. I don't care whether it does onboard data storage.
I intend to integrate this with my own existing monitoring solution that
already includes Icinga, some custom scripts, logcheck alerts, and a few
other odds and ends (e.g., email alerts from apcupsd for power outages).
Maybe you could think about some of those sensors:
For example, I managed to get some incomplete results with TEMPerHUM
temperature & humidity sensor and temper-python
(https://github.com/padelt/temper-python) in Wheezy. I sent my reports
to ModMyPi, www.modmypi.com, to post them on their website. You may
check there. I wish I had an option to get the monitored data written
into a file that, in turn, my amateur radio software could recognize as
a source of APRS 'weather data'. (When I experimented with that sensor,
a command executed in CLI only returned a single line of data at a time,
so that did not satisfy my needs. So I would appreciate whether
temper-python or some other software could be upgraded in that direction.)
