Re: I can handle this one

As it did to me a little over a year ago when I built my Raspberry PI controlled thermostat.
Temperature sensor, Solid State Relay to turn on and off the furnace, and a cron job to adjust the temperature for time of day. Saved me a bundle last winter when I was traveling for work.
Set the temp to 10C while I was away, then VPN into my home network, ssh into the r-pi, and reset to normal temps just before I started for home. By the time I drove 4 hours home the house was nice and toasty warm.
