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.
