I’m a software guy so please excuse any silliness in this question.
I need a scale which will not shut off on its own and continuously show changing weight values.
Although I may have no choice but to learn about load cells and arduino/raspberry interfaces, I figured I’d start with cheap digital bathroom scales.
Thr bathroom scale I bought shuts off after some time of inactivity. Worse, even if I’m standing on it, after a few seconds it locks in the weight.
As far as I can tell, they use a custom chip/board. I was hoping it would be a standard hx711 with the shutoff feature bolted on, which I could somehow disable.
Is there anything I can do to get the scale to continuously read values, until I turn it off?
