Monitor your crypto mining hardware temperatures and hash rates with the ability to restart the rig remotely as well as Alexa integration.
Crypto Miner is a companion system that runs alongside your cryptocurrency mining rig. The system allows you to monitor the temperatures of your hardware, hashing rate and also gives you the ability to reset the power supply on the rig. All these features are integrated with Alexa for voice interaction.
The temperatures are monitored using an Arduino MKR1000 with five temperature probes. This setup runs a sketch that posts the readings of each probe to a local server running on a Raspberry Pi.
I have an Express web server running on the pi which receives readings from the sensors and saves them to a RethinkDB instance. The web server acts as an API to provide data to the Alexa skill for voice interface. The user may also visit a dashboard running on the Pi that is also exposed.
The dashboard provides the user with their rig information like name and current hash rate. It also provides a real time graph of the latest readings.
The user can click through on any of the readings to see the full history for each of the temperatures.
The user can also click through on the hash rate to see hash rate history, as well.
This hardware has a companion Alexa skill called Crypto Miner. You can use Crypto Miner to get your rigs current hash rate and temperatures.
- Alexa, ask Crypto Miner, what is the hash rate of Gill?
Where Gill is the name of your mining rig.
You can also ask for temperatures based on name.
- Alexa, ask Crypto Miner, what is the temperature of the radiator?
- Alexa, ask Crypto Miner, what is the temperature of the video cards?
- Alexa, ask Crypto Miner, what is the temperature of the case?
You may also restart the rig by name.
- Alexa, ask Crypto Miner to reset rig Gill.
