Hello everyone nice to have a new forum for farmOS,
I am using farmOS on a local server and connect via VPN to it when I am in the field.
I used this setup because it was easy and I believe its a bit more secure this way especially if I miss a important security update. I know I could host it on farmier but I would like to run it myself.
I had to learn a bit about raspberry pi for my weather station so now I would like to try
this project https://farmhack.org/tools/collecting-sensor-data-farmos-using-grovepi-and-node-red
and integrate sensor data into farmOS.
What would be the ideal network setup to keep farmos on the local network?
My plan would be.
- collecting data with a solar power wifi pi
- send it to a solar powered wifi router (will be in the field for the weather station)
3.? Use the router VPN to connect to the my home server (that runs farmOS)
3.? Have a VPN connection running from the local server to the router or sensor Pi (not sure if this is even possible)
What setup would you suggest?
Another question would be how to graph the data that are collected in farmOS.
BTW are there any plans to integrate Weewx data feeds to farmOS?
