I'm not sure if this is the correct thread to ask but I need to start somewhere
What I'm looking to do is small box computer that I can mount on wall near the exit from my house that would monitor the environmental stats + other things
From what I have seen I can't decide which device to use ( or modules, or if they are compatible which each other )
Basically what I need it to be able to have:
WiFi Light /Pressure / Temperature / Humidity sensor (basic environment check ) WebCam ? or other sensor to detect proximity ( somebody approach device ) Small LCD / OLED display to display small graphic ( 3.5" max size ) Running linux ( programing in python preferable ) Sound output ( play song ) Mic input would be nice ( not needed )
Cheep and small
I can program in python, and if my life depended on it also in android java.. but would very much prefer python and linux.
From what I have read around raspberry pi could be good choice, but can it run all the sensors at once, I have no experience with it though.
Also it should be powerful enough to run web server ( even one written in python would be ok ) to display data ( serve data via xml to other devices like phone and so on... )
Any suggestions would be much appreciated, thanks Vladimir
