Thanks for sharing your experiences. It was really quick to get started with your help.

Me and my housemate are thinking of buying about 20 more of these and scattering them around our house, then sending temperature reports to Grafana via MQTT and a raspberry pi.

I would like to use your example as the base for our project, but my housemate says that there's a bunch of paperwork with his employer if he wants to contribute to a project that uses the Unlicense (opensource.google/docs/patching/). Is there any chance that you could release a version of your code that's under some other license? (BSD0 seems quite similar to unlicense in spirit, or dual-licensed-Apache-2.0-and-MIT if you want to have the same license as the rust-lang/rust repo)

If you want me to re-license it for you then I'm happy to send you a patch.

Hey! Super cool to see someone expand on this. I've updated to a dual-licensed-Apache-2.0-and-MIT as per your suggestion. Thanks!

I just wanted to say thanks again for giving us the kickstart for this. We have since moved our repo to github.com/alsuren/mijia-homie/ , and I'm even giving a presentation about it to a few colleagues this evening (slides at github.com/alsuren/mijia-homie/pul...).
