I’m a relative newbie to all this hardware hacking fun, but I’m loving it. I generally use RPi devices of various flavours, but I’m thinking of a project in which that is likely to be overkill.
Basically, I want a temperature and humidity sensor set up in my timber store. I have an Adafruit sensor (HTU21D-F) and an OLED display, both of which I’m currently driving from my Pi Zero W. That allows me to also upload data to ThingSpeak for remote reference.
What I’d like to know is, is there an alternate platform that will allow me to sense the environment, display it locally and upload the data but that isn’t Pi-based? Ideally I’d like to remove the need for a full OS boot. Is something Arduino-esque a possibility, or is the hardware cost going to be silly for the processor and wifi capability?
As I said in the title, I know nothing.
