@NeverDie that's not just a router it's a an x86 motherboard that you can install pfsense on. I think he meant, he wouldn't install pfsense in vm
It is also fairly priced, I have one of their products before, but didn't check them recently, that's a great choice for self-built firewall.
@Martin_Smith Microwave backscatter can show rain out to some distance. At airports an optical method is used as it also covers fog and snow. It really comes down to why you want to measure distance in rainy days and what sort of distance you intend or need to cover.....
@Westie That feature can also be used with the Arduino Nano, or any other ATmega328P-based board.
I had NRF24 + RFM69 running for a couple of days using a Nano as an Ethernet MQTT gateway and it worked fine as far as I remember.
Reporting back: I installed the Gen2 Emporia Vue, and it "just works" on the first try. Ironically, it reports the same amount of power for my refrigerator as the far less expensive TopGreener power module, so I guess the TopGreener is more accurate than what I had thought. At least the Emporia Vue's built in graphing is far superior and involves no switching, so overall I'm glad I made the upgrade.
