The complete project is actually very easy, the soldering is the hardest part.

The cost is about 110 dollars for everything

A case is still in the works but the design is being 3d printed and the files will be available to order if they fit correctly.


The complete Pi-Hetermeter. You can see a spot on the board for a wireless receiver(below the "NO" on the display), when used you can add wireless probes


This pic shows the Hetermeter(top) and the Raspberry PI(bottom)

Anybody can build one without experience. The WRT54G/heatermeter was my my first project and I have learned alot doing it myself. Bryan Mayland over at www.tvwbb.com will answer every question and is very helpful. He also continuosly upgrades the software putting in around 30 hours a week on it.

Here is a link to my still in use linkmeter and it also has a link to my older thread

That's all really cool :-). I'm looking at ways to make a simple solenoid intake air valve instead of using a blower. I think I will work that out with a cheap PID controller (can actually use my Auber to start playing around) then think about the Rasberry Pi setup. I just snagged a 30 gallon drum to build a mini UDS that this temp control idea will be used on.
