State of the Project: September

  • Installed a setup with light and temp+RH sensors on Professor Schmitz’s hives recently, photos below. It blew off after a few days, and upon inspection it looks like the battery died at night (~18 hours in) and didn’t recharge the morning after.
  • Need to investigate: why didn’t the solar panel recharge the battery and restart the pi?
  • Need to make sure the values we got in the 18 hours were reasonable for that day.
