Introduction

When much of the Victoria Regional History Center's archives moved to a storage facility off campus, we wanted a way to be able to monitor the space's temperature and humidity remotely. We wanted our monitor to meet 3 conditions...

  • The Raspberry Pi had to be able to accurate gauge both the temperature and humidity of the room
  • The data retrieved needed to be available remotely
  • The Special Collections Librarian would receive an alert if either the temperature or humidity exceeded archival standards

 

What's needed

A list of parts we used to build our humidity monitor. You can purchase the parts separately or in a kit.
