It is possible to set up a Raspberry Pi as an ElectroSense sensor. Therefore, you need
When it comes to software, you have the choice between an installation based on Debian package or using our pre-configured image. Using the image is the preferred procedure.
$ wget http://repository.electrosense.org/images/electrosense_latest.img.bz2
$ bzip2 -d electrosense_latest.img.bz2
$ sudo dd if=electrosense_latest.img of=/dev/mmcblk0 bs=4M(/dev/mmcblk0 may be different on your computer. It is the device node of your SD card reader)
First of all, install the latest version of Raspbian:
$ unzip 2016-05-27-raspbian-jessie.zip(The exact name may change)
$ sudo dd if=2016-05-27-raspbian-jessie.img of=/dev/mmcblk0 bs=4M(/dev/mmcblk0 may be different on your computer. It is the device node of your SD card reader)
Now you can boot your Raspberry Pi with the SD card and install the ElectroSense package.
$ sudo su
# echo "deb http://repository.electrosense.org/apt/debian/ stable main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/electrosense.list
# wget -qO - http://repository.electrosense.org/apt/debian/conf/electrosense.gpg.key | sudo apt-key add -
# apt-get update && apt-get install electrosense
ElectroSense provides a limited number of pre-configured sensors for free to people that would like to host a sensor but don't have the required budget or expertise to setup their own sensors. In order to apply to get such a sensor, send us a request indicating the location where you would like to install the sensor and your motivation.
