Newbie Question.
« on: April 04, 2020, 01:01:45 PM »
I'm not sure if this is the correct place to post this. If it's not could one of the moderators please move it.

Hi Guys 'n Gals,
A while ago my wife purchased an Oregon Scientific weather station that uses wireless (433Mhz) sensors. The base station works fine but there is no way to log the data.

I found a receiver circuit based on an Arduino that grabbed and decoded the data. That worked well and I was able to stuff the data in to a database. Problem was the USB kept dropping out and I'd lose days of data each time as I had to do a hard reset to get it back.

Does anyone here know, or have made a similar system using a raspberry Pi ?

I'm thinking of the Pi as it's network based and I could grab the data that way.

Any advice/help would be appreciated.

Cheers,

Andy
