Building sensors / software frameworks
I’m nearing a stage in a project where I’d like to monitor the state of a building, and before googling on my own, I thought I’d see if there was a ‘goto’ that I should just choose.
I’d like to wire up a series of sensors to monitor the typical environmental parameters, RH, Temp, Pressure, .., as well as a small solar cell (small as in the size of a watch) to monitor solar irradiance, as well as a small ccd pointed upwards to calculate cloud cover. Is there a free / open source / cheap framework that lets me load up a rasberry pi with a set of gpio sensors / modules? I wouldn’t mind writing it from scratch, as my day job is mostly software, but if I only had to paint a wheel that would be preferable to carving it out from a tree. The idea is to essentially recreate some of the BSC studies for sheathing WC, temperature, etc.
The same goes for hardware. Is there a suite of sensors that is ‘ready to go’ in a sense that I should look for?
Thanks in advance!
