I did something similar but for different reasons. I live in the UK so I wanted to know how cold it was in each room.

I think I ended up setting 3 pi zeros up, with temp sensors on each. Then wrote a mini rest API in PHP to use to log the sensor readings every 15 minutes from a Python script on each pi to a MySQL database, and then I used Google charts to create the graphed data on a "hidden" link in my website.

The only thing I found I could have added to this was to capture the actual weather forecast (or even just an outside temp reading) to give some sort of reference as to why it might only be 14C degrees in my conservatory even though we had the heating on. It would make more sense if I knew it was only 2C degrees outside.

I have a bit of a write up about my project and the challenges I faced over at ??
