Cooler but warming later. Some chance of rain. Maybe clear later. Yesterday was nice and hot, sunny too. D1 had a good time at the beach.
I was looking for a safety monitor to watch out for me in the attic at my client’s place. It was REALLY hot in the attic. Fortunately I did all the hard and sweaty crawling around last time. All I had to do was enter, and connect cabling. Still, last time I measured the attic temps in summer, I got 142F iirc. I might take a thermometer back with me on Monday or Tues. just to see. In any case it was dangerously hot.
I didn’t get any one thing done over there either. Got the camera rebooted. Tried adding the new cam, but firmware and OS on the NVR were too old. I’m replacing it all next week anyway so I didn’t update anything. Did some maintenance on the ubiquiti Cloud Key appliance that works as a manager and dashboard for the system. Didn’t update any firmware in the system either, as I didn’t have time to recover if anything broke. Did get new hardware added.
Got the NanoStation 5AC loco added, and configured as an access point. I confirmed there is signal at the gate opener and keypad. If I have to, I can add the other one, a switch at the gate, and config it all as a wire replacement. More gear, more time, more effort, so I’m hoping that I’ve done enough with wifi coverage. I couldn’t quite finish, as I needed to locate a PoE injector in the attic, and I didn’t have what I needed with me to plug everything in. I’ll bring that back next week and finish that.
And I got the control gear installed, the piece I had to wait most of a year to find on ebay as normal channels are dry. It’s configured but not complete as the controls programmer hasn’t done his part yet. He wants me there when he connects and sets it up. I’ll need to test it in any case.
So a lot got done, but nothing got done.
Today I should be doing more cleaning, and taking stuff out of the house and to storage. It’s piling up while waiting for an auctioneer, but it needs to be out of the foyer and living room. I’ve been doing other stuff, and making the piles higher as I organized. If it isn’t raining, today is the day that organizing will bear fruit as the stuff goes away.
Oh, all the normal weekly domestic bliss needs to happen too. Joy.
It’s a great life, if you don’t falter.
Stack something, even if it’s a small stack.
