Arduino Curing Chamber Setup - Page 2

post #21 of 26
Cool project. Just stopping in to follow along!
post #22 of 26

I'm looking at doing he same thing only in a full size fridge, and converting the freezer to a cheese cave. That basically means I'll just have double the sensors. I'm also planning on using a Photon wifi kit (https://store.particle.io/?product=particle-photon). Right now I'm just amassing the components, but I was wondering if you'd be willing to share your code?

Awesome efforts with the Arduino setup. I am also working an Arduino setup, and am building the chamber as well. About the size of an armoire for my first attempt.

 

Just jumping in to this thread now, so sorry if you already mentioned this, but curious if you have cut vent holes into the fridge? In the course of my research, this is really one of the big things that made me decide to go with a custom build setup, which gives me so much more control over all the other elements. Mine will have air intake and venting out to the exterior of the house - hopefully to avoid major smells inside, but who knows. This could be done with a fridge, but seems like more work.

 

Looking forward to following your progress and discussing my efforts with you going forward. Just making the final design plans, so getting close.

Hi Zempage,

 

Curious if you have looked into whether the fridge and freezer have a common air transfer system. From my research I think some fridges, if not all, will have some air flow between the fridge and freezer portions. I think you don't want the molds from the meats to interact with the molds from the cheeses. I would probably use the freezer portion to hold all of the electrical components to keep things tidy, and then do a separate chamber from cheese. Again, based on my research only, not personal experience.

From the reading I've done it doesn't seem to be much of a problem. I guess we'll see though! I have a watertight project box that will hold all the components.

Very cool. I love doing  Arduino projects. Python code too.
