Ok so I have a couple different problems.
Is the BrewPi shield necessary?
-I am using this on a project unrelated to Beer. BrewPi was recommended by a friend
-For the curious this is going to control a heater for a Tortoise building.
I get BrewPi to recognize temp sensors but it will not activate Digital port 2 on my arduino uno to switch the SSR when it needs to heat.
-I have put a volt meter to it.
Every time I refresh the devices it blows out all my currently set devices. I have even tried a new arduino uno.
-I am using the hex code for the arduino uno revC.
From what I can tell I am doing everything correctly. I thought the shield was mainly if you are running a LCD screen.
