I figured as such on the roof, i could settle for just finding a place on the patio where the pi and sensor could be mounted.
The vpn and static ip’s is mostly just to do maintenance on the pi’s while their headless. My plan is for the data to be uploaded to a MySQL database when its running. But I need a way to remote in to adjust them.
The static IP’s aren’t required, but it would make troubleshooting alot easier when im working remotely,
1-will be a outdoor enviromental monitor
2-will be an indoor enviromental monitor
-both would be using a Pimoroni Enviro+ phat -> https://shop.pimoroni.com/products/enviro?variant=31155658457171
3- will be the system controller
-this will be using a Pi-plate cDAQ2 for analog inputs and digital output -> https://pi-plates.com/daqc2r1/
I would say the 2 environmental monitors aren’t critical for remote access, but the third one would be if i put it in charge of any of the pumps or heaters.
Putting them all in 1 pi, isn’t entirely practical either as the phat boards are needing to be physically placed in differently locations.
