So I'm trying to make use of my Arduino Uno while I purchase the components for my next project.
I've made use of the Digital Hourglass project from the Starter Kit to make sure I get up and move around every 20 minutes while I'm at home. A temperature sensor was included in the Starter Kit as well, so I figured I might as well make use of it since I have extra I/O pins.
I wrote the code for in the Arduino IDE to display the temperature and the current time. I'm using:
#include (Time.h) to also show the current time. I have two questions.
A Google spreadsheet (Cloud) that I can access anywhere that can show me the temperature of my apartment throughout the day. I can track how the trend changes over time through the day, week, or month.
What is the best way to output the current time; as seconds since 1970 (Unix time) or date and time format? I guess it's a preference.
How do I output the data from the Arduino serial port directly to Google Sheets? That may be difficult, so the other option is to energize the Arduino in the morning and remove power at the end of the day, output the Serial port to a
.txtfile, and then import into Google sheets. How do I do this?
