This is a Raspberry Pi Temperature controller.
It allows you to read and control the temperature and has a really easy interface.

What a fantastically expensive, inefficient way to achieve a simple goal.

First let's read what our illustrious Dave Jones have to say about a hardware project

Considering how many options there are I don't think there is a very expensive project.

Second, let's go buy a programmable thermostat off the shelf.

Sorry, I just find the idea of building expensive hardware around an expensive, underperforming, overhyped piece of hardware utterly offensive.

Less than $20 more for a proven, tested, certified safe, purpose built device, with more input capability. And it is of course the only one on the market...
