Raspberry Pi Zero W

Post by Volker S » Tue Feb 06, 2018 3:23 pm

Is the Raspberry Pi Zero W compatible with meteohub? Because it has the same CPU as Raspberry Pi B/B+ (Link) I think I could use it.

We don't have a port for it.

What port do you mean?
The Pi Zero W has WLAN and USB. What is missing?

I think that refers to software/firmware porting?

Can you explain it in a short way? Has that been tried?

As Meteohub is designed as a headless unit, a device without LAN is not fitting. How should one insert the credentials for WiFi?

Would need complicated Access Point operation in the beginning and then switching over to a WiFi client... much hassle... for what? Just for saying it also supports this device type? I don't really see the benefit.

When you want it really small and less power hungry, you can go with Meteobridge.
