Environmental monitoring added to the space.

We now have air quality (PM2.5 & PM10), temperature, humidity and pressure monitoring at the shed. There’s an SDS011 and a BME280 sensor connected to an ESP8266 upstairs in the corner near the printer. Readings are taken every 5 minutes and uploaded to an influxdb server which grafana is pulling it’s data from to produce these neat graphs available here:

The plan is to extend this and have outdoor monitoring as well as other interesting data points that might be of interest. See me (Jim) if you’re interested in access to the influxdb server and grafana.

The data is also syndicated out to a wider global air quality NGO https://sensor.community/en/ You can see our place on the map here: https://maps.sensor.community/#9/52.0396/-0.7710
