Description :

This is a simeple nodejs script to monitor raspberry pi cpu temperature remotely.

This runs as a autostarting service on raspberry pi which meausures cpu temperature and posts to a configured mqtt broker topic Note : you can configure your broker and topic in app.properties

I use mqtt-spy to monitor and generate the graphs

Feel free to get in touch with me if you are having any issues with using this by opening an issue.

To install the application

Step 0 : login to raspberry pi

ssh piuser@192.168.0.101

Ex: 'ssh piuser@pi2' here piuser is the user you created during installation of raspberry pi and pi2 is the hostname of your raspberry pi. if you are using a IP address, you can use it instead

Step 1 : Check out the project in to your home directory

cd ~/git

Note: if "~/git" doesnt exist create it using "mkdir ~/git" command

git clone <git url >

Step 2 : Copy the project file in to your /usr/local/bin and make the main file executable

sudo cp ~/git/pi_temp_logger/ /usr/local/bin/pi_temp_logger/
sudo chmod a+x /usr/local/bin/pi_temp_logger/main.js

Step 3 : Change permissons of all file so that the service user can execute them.

_ Note : if your raspberry pi user is different from 'pi', for Ex: 'johndoe' then replace pi with johndoe in below commands _

cd /usr/local/bin/pi_temp_logger/
sudo chown -R pi:pi *

Step 4 : Download all nodejs dependencies that are needed to run the project

sudo npm install

Step 5 : Enable and start the service

sudo systemctl enable /usr/local/bin/pi_temp_logger/pitemplogger.service
sudo systemctl start pitemplogger

Step 6 : Check the service status

sudo systemctl status pitemplogger

Note : One of the most likely reasons for service startup failure are

  • Nodejs not installed properly
  • File permissions are not properly set
