    Hello. Mine is still in progress. I have other projects with higher priority. But what I'm gonna use is a pipe fitting with cutting ring of 6 mm on one side and a thread of 3/8" on the other side. What I need to do first is to drill with a bit of 6mm through the fitting. Or you can use epoxy.

    I did it. And here is how:I have changed some images in the images directory. Two of them I just swapped the name. poweron.img and poweroff.img.The images check_off.png and check_off1.png I colored red. And the check_on.img and check_on1.img became green for the tablet.I've made in the logged.css file two new classes. Namely red-circle and green_circle. Just a copy of thepump_circle class but another backgroundcolor.And finally I added to the controller.php file in files/control a if statement to check the status of the accordingpins and draw the corresponding circle. Off=red. On=green.If you like I can send you the logged.css and controller.php Rick Feenstra ;)to compare with the originals.Do remember I have no skills or what so ever to make html or interactive sites. Just fig...

    Godverd... :)When I did a reboot my Pi had trouble finding the kernel. Had to do the hole cycle all over again. But with new knowledge it went smoothly :)The icons are changed, now the filling of the circles. I'll keep you posted.Enjoy your Sunday

    I manually changed the temp value in the database and now I have a reading. Somehow the cronjobs are not executed. If I look at your image in the var/spool/cron/crontabs I have 2 files. contrab and root. On mine no files at all. Tried to copy them but access denied.

    Finally it works.Using Filezilla you can't just see the files in the spool/cron ... directorie. That's why I was confused.I opened for the 100th time :) the crontab. Checked again and saw that in step 5 - setting up crontabs - you added the auth code to the lines. And in the comment here above not. So I removed it. And there was also one syntax error.You can ask why going trough all this trouble and not using the image b'cause it works? Yes its works. Great. But I wanted to change the icons on/off and access was denied using the image. So I had to make one following your steps. And changed the icons.Why changing the icons? I am a mecanical maintenance engineer. And on each control cabinet in our factory a green light means the corresponding process is on. And red is off. A...

Also I want to figure out how to change to color of the circles. Instead of the text 'on' I like to have a green filled circle or when off red.Never the less this is a very great project and you were very helpfull. Keep up the good jobs.I love dutch people. Sometimes :) Most greetings from Flanders

    Yo Rickie,Personal messages ain't helping others if they have the same issue. I learn a lot by these comments and if I can help others by staying public ...Did some research and found out that the address is hardcoded into the sensor http://www.reuk.co.uk/wordpress/raspberry-pi/ds18b20-temperature-sensor-with-raspberry-pi/ And to connect multiple sensors : http://www.reuk.co.uk/wordpress/raspberry-pi/connect-multiple-temperature-sensors-with-raspberry-pi/Didn't know about the scan option.And yes, I used the resistor. Never doubt the teacher :)I did the scan and named my sensor. I have a reading in the normal view but now no reading in the tablet view. Just the degrees symbol. Can I change which sensor I like to see in the tablet view?Would like to dive right now into my hot tub (...

    The cause is the temperature is not written to the database.I have two SD cards. One with your image installed and one I created myself following your steps. The first one works ok. Mine not all the way :(I will compare all files in the html map. Maybe I'll missed one up during configuration.

    Great. It's working. Almost. The only problem for me are the sensors. Right now I use only one. But I'm not sure which pin to use. In the example the sensor is connected to pin 7 or GPIO4. It doens't work for me. In the normal layout the reading is 9999°. In the tablet layout it says 18.4° and not changing over time.I am using a Pi b model. Which pin should I use? And if I add other sensors to it what are the corresponding pins.Mooi werk, Rickiewickie
