I have recently bought raspberry pi to start working on it. I have never ever used it before. I am thinking of doing very basic task of led bulb on/off for getting into it. I am curious on developing the system which senses for milk boiling so that I can develop a temperature alarm. It continuously measures the temperature of the milk and sounds an alarm when the milk is about to overflow from the stove.

What should I be equipped with to achieve the above project besides programming? Can anyone please guide me?

  • \$\begingroup\$ You need a temperature sensor. There are a lot of Raspi tutorials featuring an DS18B20. Look for it. \$\endgroup\$ – Janka Sep 8 '17 at 2:05

  • \$\begingroup\$ Just the temperature sensor would work? Do I need additional resource for just measuring the temperature of boiling milk instead of room temperature? Can you explain a bit, please? \$\endgroup\$ – pri Sep 8 '17 at 2:24

    \$\begingroup\$ It seems to me that when the temperature stops going up, the milk is about to boil over. Regardless of altitude, etc. \$\endgroup\$ – mkeith Sep 8 '17 at 5:41

    \$\begingroup\$ I foresee lots of interesting experiments (and big messes) in your household before this functions properly. Do make sure to pick a temperature sensor intended for use in food, and make sure that no soldered connections can get in the milk. \$\endgroup\$ – JRE Sep 8 '17 at 8:21
