Last week I found a data breach in a large companies website, exposing over 2 million customer records (name, address, email, phone number) It's always a though choice, do I call it in and risk getting sued, or leave it? Since this was quite a big leak, which I more or less stumbled upon (think in the lines of 'this looks odd, what happens if I try and change this') , I just went ahead and stated my intensions very clearly in my messages, and hoped they would see it would benefit them to use my report, and fix the problem as soon as possible.
I'm using my hue sensor in openhab and really like them, I was looking for some nice teardown pictures of the hue motion sensor, but could only find the Hue dimmer switcch dissection & Hue tap Dissection Since I'm pretty curious what's inside, and how they get this good batterylife I will dissassemble one of my hue motion sensors in the name of science to see what's in there, I hope I can help someone else out with these. I'll try to compile a list of the items I find on the board, if you have any additions please let me know :) - Atmega M2564RFR2-ZU - 4mb serial flash 25fu406c - Some type of Pir motionsensor -
For my project where I control my remote via pnps I want to create a low power sensor which will be able to send humidity & temperature data to my openhab server which is running mosquitto Since I have some esp8266 chips laying around, this would be great to setup as a wifi mqtt sensor with the dht22, which will periodically (every 10 minutes) send new sensor data to my mqtt broker. A quick video how to get a basic breadboard setup: I will need it to be pretty energy efficient, so whenever the esp is done sending data, it will go into deepsleep for 10 minutes, and then wakeup and send again...
When creating a webapplication or API it's important to test how well your site will work under heavy load, it's easier to prevent any problems beforehand, compared to doing it when you find out your server is getting swamped with requests.
