It-Slav.net is proud to announce as one of the temperature providers to temperatur.nu

It-slav.net provides temperature measurement for STHLM/Huddinge area in Sweden to the very popular site temperatur.nu

The measurment is done by a 1-wire temperature probe DS18S20.

The script that collects the temperature and stores it in a file that is presented as a webpage, the webpage is polled regularly by temperatur.nu

# check for error code from temp sensor

    Hi Peter, I think you have to change the position of the temp probe, allways a few degree warmer than all our thermometers in Huddinge/Stuvsta.

    I have noticed that asweell. The temp probe is probably to close to the house. I will look into that when the snow is gone 🙂
