I feel like this would be pretty easy for someone with the right scripting skills. Unfortunately, I am not that person.
With that said, I use a pi to host brewblox (as I’m sure many other people do too). I have to keep it in the garage so my tilt can be within range. It can get petty hot in the garage and it would be nice to be able to track / graph the CPU temp on the brewblox UI. Does anybody already have a widget that does this?
I bought the official fan for the raspberry pi 4. It sits inside the case and pulls air through the USB ports.
Through raspi-config, you can configure which pin controls it (pin 14 default) and at which temperature it turns on (default 80 degrees Celsius). I set mine to 75C.
Any PWM fan will probably work, but this one can be easily mounted.
This means it is not running most of the times, but it does turn on when the CPU is overheating. Sounds like what you are after too. Maybe instead of tracking, you’d want to set this up. It prevents overheating, tracking not needed.
@Elco , that’s nice they made official fan for the pi4. However, I saw this case and bought a pi4 just for it… LOL
@Bob_Steers, the pi temp fix works great, thanks for the help. I do have an additional question though, the “pi-temperature” is a service right? But it doesn’t list as a service under my spark-one or tilt. Should it?
