Temperature Monitoring Daemon

Project description

=======================================
tempmon -- Temperature monitor daemon
=======================================

tempmon uses temperusb_ to read temperature value from TEMPer_ sensors
on the USB bus and OWM_ to find the local reported temperature and
publishes the results to `plot.ly`_

.. _temperusb: https://pypi.python.org/pypi/temperusb
.. _TEMPer: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002VA813U/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B002VA813U&linkCode=as2&tag=hellflynet-20&linkId=VHDXEZ2QB74BXBM5
.. _plot.ly: https://plot.ly
.. _OWM: http://openweathermap.org/

Setup
=====

#. Sign up for a plot.ly account.
#. From your `plot.ly settings page`_, create one stream token per
sensor device
#. Install tempmon and its dependencies. A virtualenv works fine for
this.
#. Sign up for a OWM account and find your API key on `your settings
page <http://openweathermap.org/my>`__.
4. Create a configuration file using YAML syntax and containing at
least the basic plot.ly authentication data:

::

plotly:
username:
api-key:
stream-tokens:
- token1
- token2
weather:
api-key:
place: "City, State"

5. Run ``tempmon -c $CONFIG_FILENAME``. Add ``-v`` to see the log
output on the console for debugging.

Other Configuration Settings
============================

graph-title

The title of the graph defaults to "Temperature".

retention-period

The number of days for which data should be kept. tempmon uses this
value to compute the number of points to save based on the
``frequency``.

frequency

How often to collect data, in minutes. This value is approximately
how fast tempmon will poll the device. The minimum frequency is 1
minute.

units

The units to report the temperature in. Either ``celsius`` or
``fahrenheit``. Defaults to ``fahrenheit``.
