A while back John mentioned in one of the threads that he has fairly extensive telemetry installed in his ICF house, so I sent him a PM asking for details. Well, I can't find the PM function anywhere in these forums to check my messages. I do not use Micro$oft products (but use Debian for security) so that may be the reason. John, if you're out there can you please give some info on your monitoring system? Or link me to some resources? And can we please get more modern forum software?

The answers you seek may be in the "thermal mass example" thread. Actually I haven't seen much from him of late, maybe he is watching the snow pile up there in Colorado.

That's where he made fleeting reference to his system, but no details. Really interested in the geek stuff.

To answer the checking PrivateMessage question. If you are sent a PM it will arrive in your email just like any other email. And you can respond to it there.

OK, got it now, thanks. Used a throwaway account in case of spam, but ironically it put all the thread notifications in the spam bin there.

Hopefully I'll hear from John. I did find these, but they look expen$ive.

Because of the filtering system here, you won't have to worry about getting spammed. But if your PM's are too "commercial" or appear to be soliciting they will get dumped.

I'm kinda back here part time, I'll work on a detailed writeup in the next few weeks.  I'm using a program called 'misterhouse' and some perl stuff I wrote for it, but it's really on the hardcore geek side.  You can get expensive pre-packaged versions of sensors and software here:

ibuttonlink.com

I don't work for them, i use some of their goodies on my project, and you can buy virtually all of the basic stuff elsewhere cheaper.

I actually had some interest in commercial versions of this, and had gotten things to the point of a small internet router sized box that produced daily and yearly spreadsheets and graphs and an in-house web-page for up to 1000 sensors, but never quite had more than one contractor (4-5 projects interested) so I've not pushed it.  I thought I could bundle it with a dozen sensors...  Anyway, I'm not really selling anything, but will do a writeup on what I did, where I got the hardware and software, and how it's been working.

I've updated it to monitor the bathroom hot water pipes, and turn on the vent fans when my daughter forgets. :)

I am intrigued by  your concept. There could be a market for using your box and a few sensors to do some pretty sophisticated energy audits.
