Just set up some sensors in the house, and boy is it cold here on Sicily in late November:

In related news: still loving Home Assistant. So easy to set up this stuff.

What are you using for temperature logging (hardware/software)?

I was actually just building a temp logger with an old RPi and a couple DS18B20 waterproof temp sensors last night! I got the hardware all working properly, but then ran into some software issues that I think originated from an outdated OS on the RPi, so I called it a night. I was planning to just wipe the thing and start fresh sometime this weekend.

@htimsxela Just simple DHT11 sensors attached to some RPi. Software is a script using CircuitPython, sending data to queues on the Home Assistant's MQTT. Here's the script, in case you're interested:

Thanks for the links, I haven't really played with any iot stuff much before, slightly wary of a lot of it but I do see the appeal.
I went with this sort of build, just got it finished today finally: 16/03/23/homebrew-temperature-logger/

So far so good!

@raucao To be honest, 60F isn't that bad. Talk to me once you get sub zero.

@raucao Yes I understand. I have lived in northern cities so I'm more used to the cooler temps.

@TallTim I haven't done a full winter in even temperate climates since 2010, so yeah. Nowadays I'm freezing my ass off in what I would've considered OK autumn temperatures a decade ago.
