It's also handy in the office. I currently have a work experience lad from the local college wielding a soldering iron, whilst I drill holes in the walls etc to setup a one wire sensor network for the place. I did consider making him do data entry and filing (not really) as is traditional. I now have eight temperature sensors and a couple of door open/shut sensors wired up to a Pi. OpenHAB on the frontend and also fed to our Icinga instance. Total parts bill <£100 including the Pi.

I have 25 years sysadmin experience and rather a lot of IT equipment, he has good eyes and steady hands and a willingness to learn. Good combination for education to occur (including mine.)
