Ever since we bought the house, last year, I’ve been planning to run wired network to the living room TV and media center — it’s time to finally get that done 🙂
We recently got a family computer in our play room, and it of course needs network. So I ran a 20 mm conduit from the basement, through the kitchen, to the play room, and pulled two CAT6 cables.
Shortly after I upgraded my Unifi access points from 4.3.28 to 5.43.43; I started getting timeout issues. Not all devices, but some; the Raspberry Pi driving our DAKboard, and both our Netatmo air quality sensors.
It took me a while to understand what was happening, and I didn’t immediately relate it to the firmware upgrade.
When I got serious about my electronics lab — I found it useful to see what equipment other people have in their labs. I got a lot of information from EEVblog’s video on How To Set Up An Electronics Lab.
So — here is my contribution 🙂 Below you’ll find a list and photo gallery of my electronics lab equipment 👇
Earlier this year I put up a Raspberry Pi powered DAKboard display. It shows photos from our Google Photos albums, the time and weather, and most importantly; our shared calendar.
But I’d like it to show some custom data as well — like indoor temperature and humidity. And the measured outdoor temperature, not just the one reported from the weather service.
Here is how I did that — using Home Assistant 👇
