I'm looking to control lighting and monitor energy in my low energy solar panels, and in a manner that uses very little energy. I currently have a Dell Mini Inspiron 1012 (Atom processor, 2G memory) that I am planning on using, as it is extremely low energy for a laptop (and I happen to have one available).
With the very limited requirements stated above, can I even get in the ballpark on such a platform?
I'm a Linux lightweight (have used Ubuntu for about 7 years, have worked with Unix/Solaris workstations in the past), so I know my way around Linux in a minor sense.
Hello friend were you able to control out the lighting and monitor the energy of your solar system? I do have similar requirements so can you help me out with some useful information?
