This is more for the techie types I think.
I am thinking about getting one of these
4" tablets and permanently mounting it in my van. I will get also get Raspberry Pi
and link them via wifi. Due to the built in IO ports I can them control anything in the van via the android tablet. Just after christmas I will have my motorhomewifi.com 3g/wifi router set up so the van will be comprehensively networked
I will configure the tablet to give me local weather wherever I am, temperatures from 2 digital thermometers one inside one outside.
I will be able to control the lights.
I will setup news feeds, email notifications and server monitoring.
I could also link in external cameras for additional security when wilding.
So many more ideas as well.
£49 for the tablet
£35 for the Pi
Probably no more than £20 for the electronics. So around the £100 mark.
