TOPIC: Builds with PID displays? Auto loading recipes?

Builds with PID displays? Auto loading recipes? 3 years 2 months ago #664

I'm really liking some of these expanded Phoenix builds with the PID displays visible from 'a distance'.
Is there anyone here that would be willing to share the wiring schematic and code modifications you came up with?

Also - I've been fantasizing about adding an Arduino (or something) and a solid state drive to interface with the BeerSmith cloud. Has anybody had the same thoughts? Anyone successful?

The PID displays are natively supported. They are the ones sold by BrewersHardware and they connect via I2C. There is some work assigning addresses and assigning what each display is displaying, but its well commented in the firmware if you want to play with it!

I love the idea of interfering with BeerSmith Cloud. I actually reached out to Brad hoping for an official API, but alas, no. You can import beer XML already (we are trying to squash bugs on that as well). And I'm in the planning stage for something that might be even better than Beersmith.... maybe, If I'm smart enough!
