    WiFi Plant Watering ESP8266

    I did a non-wifi watering electronic setup and I thing i learned is that the water reservoir needs to be lower than the plant or you get siphon effect. To fix this you would need a valve. Also need to account for power outage if you are using a timer setup - I did this by writing to flash of a HC12S.

  • Raspberry Pi Media Server - MiniDLNA

    Hi and thanks - seems to be working great serving up to my Samsung DVD player.1 item to improve on would be the case where user could have more than 1 USB drive connected and mounted. In this case, you should refer to the UUID of the drives as the sda/sdb names are somewhat random.All you need to do is to add this in the fstab file instead:UUID=<your drive uuid> /media/<your media> vfat nofail,user,umask=0000 0 0setting umask above will mount with the correct permission 0777 also so you can skip that step in your tutorial.Then redirect minidlna to the path above using in config to /media/<your media>Find the uuid by running "sudo blkid".
