ooooo that would be pretty cool! Thanks for the info, sorry if I missed it somewhere.

Long Term Data Retention and Graphing
I would like a more robust method of storing my sensor data, and viewing it. I currently use vera, with datamine, but find the graphs and data manipulation to be severely lacking.
I looked in to Domonitz, but it appears that interval data is only kept for 7 days. Beyond that, just min max and average. This is nice, but I would really like to retain a higher resolution of long term data. For instance, hourly or so.
What solutions is everyone else using/
AC power to Arduino Pro Mini 5v
Best way to power an Arduino Pro Mini 5v from the wall?
I am going to be purchasing some components to test connectivity with my Veralite. First will build the (probably ethernet) vera bridge, and a see about building and including a temp/humidity sensor.
If all goes well, I will be adding various sensors and tinkerings around the house.
One thing I hate though, is battery power. Yes, convenient, but I dislike having to swap them out and monitor their level and such. Would much rather just plug something in to the wall and forget about it. What options do I have for doing this? Looking to keep each sensor as cheap as possible obviously, so was looking to go with the Pro Mini 5v's, I am just uncertain of the optimal way to provide them AC(120v, from the USA) power.
End game is a potential 6-7 temp sensors, 2 distance, a couple of motion, and who knows what else.

Is there support for an RGBW LED strip in Domoticz?
Similar to this, which is in Vera: http://forum.mysensors.org/topic/1626/5-channel-rgbww-led-dimmer-with-rotary-encoder/3
RE: Request: Humidity and temperature sensors calibration variable.
You can do this right in the sketch. Upload the standard sketch, check your readings, find your delta, and then modify your sketch to accommodate.
Or, use the offset feature in Domoticz, if that is the controller you are using.
And if you really need an accurate measurement, don't forget to check your readings at multiple setpoints. The math for calculating your offset would then become a little more difficult, but any basic calc knowledge and you've got it.
RE: Looking for a 12-24v DC to 5vDC converter
A second for these. I purchased from ebay about a year ago, more expensive but same unit. Working in 4 cameras.
Looking For Good Plug Connectors
Hello, I am looking for some ideas of what others are using for power/sensor connections to their boxes. I have some boxes with long external DHT, Dallas, PIR sensors. Looking for good plug connections, male and female, to use for quick and easy connections to my boxes. Currently I just run the wires in and solder them or screw terminal. Looking for plugs or something which may be a little neater. How are others using?
RE: Temperature Sensors Inside Enclosures
I have not had problems with enclosures per se, but I have seen temperature differentials due to locations exposed to direct sunlight and up against thermal masses such as a external walls or internal walls with enclosed heating ducts or hot water piping. I have four sensebenders in vented enclosures mounted on interior walls and have no problem with their accuracy. They are also loosely mounted inside their enclosures which may help them avoiding picking up heat from the walls. Overall, they seem much more consistent and accurate than the several DHT or Dallas sensors I have in my system.
Thanks for the reply, perhaps my issue stems from my enclosures being mostly sealed. No venting what so ever. I did a quick test of a few of my sensors, opening the boxes and letting them sit in open air and the differentials came down substantially.
Will look in to adding some venting!
