Different platforms support different sensors. Recommended sensors change as new ones are added. Check back before you buy.


Most of the current development is on the Pi but other platforms are added as they are developed. The PC (laptop or desktop mother board) is included for legacy support.


The Pi has digital GPIO lines which allow easy interfacing to digital sensors. When terminated according to the sensor wiring instructions, these sensors will plug into the Hive Interface Board
