A project log for Bin Temperature Monitoring System

A grain monitoring system that will cost about $500CAD (raw materials) instead of $4000 CAD. Also open source instead of closed source.

I have made an enclosure for the Arduino. Before this enclosure I just left the Arduino in a BBQ to see how long it would work on the solar panel. I also am using a more powerful solar panel. Right now I am mostly testing whether or not the poor battery will freeze in the cold even though it is inside an enclosure (does the Arduino dissipate enough power to keep it warm). My guess is it will freeze.
