I'm looking for a digital thermometer that I can plug into my PC (preferrably USB) so that I can do things like:
if (room_temperature > 90F)
else if (room_temperature > 85F)
I do this pretty much manually now, but I see no reason why it couldn't be automated.
EDIT: One with an API that works under Linux too.
I'm currently working on one right now...arduino based, hardware remote reset/power for multiple rigs added...I have the GUI done in "processing" all I have to do is add the thermistor code (resetter is done)...I will release all of it in the forums in the next week or so...just have to get it all done. Based off an Arduino Mega and epcos thermistors...should cost less than $100 to build the entire thing ($70 of that being the arduino but you can use that for other things if no longer needed for bitcoin). Once its working I hope others can expand it to do everything you are asking it to. Shouldn't be an issue since all the necessary info will be there. It will have 2 thermistors...one for ambient (close to computers) one for the room.
If I didn't have a million things going on at once it would already be on the forum.
