    Hello !!
    If you want more information related to the project, you can see the progress in this link:

    Es un foro campista de España.

    Hola!! Bueno, esto es un proyecto... Como uno de mis hobbys es la domótica me planteo implementar esta tecnología en mi cv, una Weinsberg 400LK CaraTwo...

    This has been on hold for a while ..., I have resumed again ..., basically it is a hoby and when there are more important things ...

    Started designing PCB for RPi IN / OUT ...

    Voltage sensor results are acceptable, I can measure between 11v to 15v with 0.2-0.4v precision. For an auxiliary battery it can be used.

    Right now I think about how powered RPi, I am going to try connecting to the auxiliary battery through a StepDown voltage module. Although I don't know if another smaller battery or a UPS system would be better.

    Great!

    Because the Pi does not have an analog input, you would need to use a voltage divider circuit and then an analog to digital converter. There are some example projects like that on the internet, so not too difficult (if you're comfortable with electronics). Here's one example I found: http://www.lediouris.net/RaspberryPI...nitor-12v.html

    One other boy's toy to consider : DDAUTO Android 6.0 IPS Car Roof Mount MP5 Player.

    But there is also this bad boy here : LattePanda Alpha which can be a good unit for such a project! It even has on board Arduino

    For the router, it works well if you have the signal (4G) in range plus it works with wireless (WiFi) and LAN so you can add a small network switch.

    Great contributions ...

    Thank you!!

    wow that's great, I don't know if it will be too much for my little caravan ...

    Thank you for contributing something so interesting. If you can report your progress with Modbus plugin I will be very grateful.

    I think I'm going to open a new post regarding this issue ...

    I think that, when using two HS systems, I need a new license for HsTouch ...

    Here I get lost ...

    I don't know how to do what you say ...

    I don't use HS Touch, so likely can't be a lot of help there. Can you ping the rPi from the HS Touch tablet?

    That would be the simplest. Of course, if you want to access HS remotely (from other areas in the campground using their WiFi, or away from the campground), then things would need to get more complex.
    At some point in the project things will become complex ...
