as we have got a newborn, I've turned the Espruino in a intelligent temperatur sensor, which monitors the Babies temperature. If it exceeds a value of 37.5 degree Celsius, a visual and acoustic warning signal starts and helps the parents to prevent the baby from overheating.
The tutrial is in German, but on the side, a translation function is integrated:
I hope, that this is useful for others here.
That looks great! Thanks for posting up!
It's a nice idea to log via bluetooth - I think that's the first time I've seen anyone use Bluetooth that way... Have you tried to see what kind of range you get?
Thanks for your feedback!
I've integrated the 32,768KHz quarz crystal in the code (newer version of the code). I use this for logging purpose. The reason why I'm logging via bluetooth is the easy integration and my love to the command line :-) and the bidirectional communication. You see how flexible the espruino is, because I could also log to a SDHC-card...
The signal has a range of around 10 to 15 meters, so enough for my flat.
I think I'm missing something here...
How did you mount the sensor on the baby? (Do the latest models have mounting brackets? Being single and male - hence lacking the appropriate production facilities, I haven't been keeping up to date on baby features)
Good joke :-) we've got a female model ...
The temperatur sensor is integrated in the baby's bed, so the little one can sleep peacefully.
How are you able to measure the baby's temp. without having a physical connected/attached temp. sensor to the baby's body?
@Sacha, I think Stefan said above? the sensor is in the bed - I guess it doesn't have to be super accurate, but just has to know if there's an abnormally high temperature in the bed.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
