Hi all - this will be first foray into anything involving Pi. I’m quite comfortable with Linux, computers, networking, etc.
What I’m wanting to do is build a small monitoring station based on the Pi0w, BME680, and the micro dot pHAT - i just love the retro look! I’d like to deploy these at various locations in a couple of buildings on my property - i have plenty of WiFi and power available so that won’t be an issue.
My initial question, which I realize is probably quite basic - but, how do I utilize both the micro dot and the BME680 on a Pi 0w? It looks like the display would take up the space if I stack things - which I’d like as I like the form factor of the display and the 0.
This is so obvious I must be missing it - but, i just haven’t been able to get myself to understand how i connect both the sensor and the display…I know its possible - and the answer is probably so simple I’ll laugh at myself! :)
Ideally, whatever solution exists for this setup will allow me to put it in some type of case or housing that looks halfway decent - i don’t mind (and expect) that the 680 may very well stick out of the case, but, it’d sure be nice to be able to put all this in some halfway decent box/case, etc. that I can sit on a desk, hang on the wall, etc.
Phase 2 of this project will be to feed the data from these sensors to a collection point using something like Weather Display or to something on my network running the appropriate web server/software, etc.
