This question already has an answer here:
I am building and outdoor IoT refrigerated mailbox with a DC 24V compressor with few sensors like (temp, approximately, LED lights, LED Screen). I'll be controlling the 24VDC compressor power supply on-off based on the desired temperature.
I'm planning to connect the pi to IBM Watson Bluemix to push/get json.
Is the raspberry pi suitable for such project, with a continuously running 24/7? what issues that I might face? Any recommendations?
Would you say that the Arduino boards is a safer options to such projects?
