stanislas Posted April 5, 2017 Share Posted April 5, 2017 Recentlly I automated my cockroach enclosures. An automated day/night heatingcycle. Gradual light dimming with red lights at night. Automated fogging to add moisture. This all combined with cameras that register and quantify movement. That gives me quite a good insight on the activity of these critters. I don't think that it's in any way needed for their well being. But it's fun to do... for me at least. I use heating mats (for the Polyphaga roaches) and a heating bulb (for the Therea). Raspberry pi's to control the heaters (PID controllers implemented in Python. Light: Milight wifi lights controlled by a raspberry pi with radio. Each enclosure has a raspberry pi with a camera to monitor the activity. All data is send to a raspberry pi with Emoncms systen to collect data and make graphs. So far it's (as expected) clear that these roaches are noctural Any one else with a similar approach for his/her roaches? 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
