Two Arduino problems fixed in one day! Halelujah!

 I've been procrastinating on two problems that I've not been able to resolve  - or google an answer for in my code.

 

1) Slow response in the Serial.parseInt() function... yes google gave me lots of people with the same problem, but I finally found a reference to  Serial.setTimeout()  ... well what do you know...  I set Serial.setTimeout(50)  in my setup... and low and behold...

  SNAP RESPONSE now!!!!   

 

Low-power remote power-independent (solar charged) sensor node!

Well, for a while now I've been entertaining the idea of building a remote sensor node to keep track/record of my indoors "balcony orchard".

This project here will be my starting point, a Low-Power Wireless Sensor Node where most of the work is already cut out for me.

It's power consumptions are reported to be:

Sleep Consumption 0.14 mA
