I’d like to sense temperature (at least) in the upper level of my house. I have a Raspberry Pi 1B, 2B, 3B+ and 4B2 but since I’d like to access it remotely, the 3B+ would be best due to its built-in wireless networking (and the 4B2 I’d like to still play around with!)
The Raspberry Pi SenseHAT is too expensive and has lots of sensors I don’t need.
The enviro pHAT or BME680 breakout would be more what I’m looking for. Both have all I’d want, but the BME680 looks a little more interesting with its newer sensor with air quality sensor.
Which one would be better?
Reading around I get the distinct impression the BME680 is better/newer/cooler. It’s a little more pricey here but does seem a little more interesting.
How well do these work with Raspbian Buster?
I’m not familiar with Python, how hard is it to get these working?
And finally, will I need additional hardware, connectors, etc. to connect either of these to the Pi?
