My grobo arrives tomorrow… so exciting… I happen to be much better with computers and a soldering iron than I am with plants. Well back in the 90s my roommate and I did manage to grow 6 plants in a closet with mild success. Anyway, I went into my work area and realized I have a bunch of raspberry pi computers and even some camera modules. I have decided to quickly fire up a pi with a camera and am hoping to mount the camera inside the grobo so I can ssh into the pi once a day and snap a pic from the exact same position and make a time lapse of my first grow.
I have an extra long camera ribbon cable that is paper thin so I should be able to get the camera inside the grobo with the pi resting on the top of the grobo.
Anyone modified their grobo in such a way and have any tips? Even better question, has the grobo staff thought of making this a feature? If you are listening, you totally should and then send me one for free because I’m awesome. that way it can be integrated with the light schedule and even print vital info like current cycle or days on the images
