I bought a Sense HAT as an easy way to add some sensor’s to the Raspberry Pi and a fun way to learn Python. I started on the official Raspberry Pi site learning resources for the Sense HAT found here. After reading all of the documentation and creating and running the python scripts I went over to Hackster.io. Under the Sense HAT Projects I found “Make a Mini Weather Station With a Raspberry Pi 2“. What this project does is measure temperature, humidity, barometric pressure, displays it on the 8 x 8 LED, and then logs the data to the google drive.
This is still a work in progress. There are a few things that I would like to add to this script. I want to add email alerts based on temperature and I would also like the screen to remain upright depending on orientation. Please comment below on ways to improve this script.
