Hi all,

A few readers sent us mails about the fact that the screen of the Pi of chapter 2 (http://devices.webofthings.io/camera/sensors/picture/) was not turned on. After scratching our heads for a while we discovered the glitch: at night the cam turns into infrared vision and the screen does not emit enough heat.. So it is on but you just don't see what's written on it!

Not really helpful though, so we decided to find a WoT solution to that problem: we setup a Philips Hue lamp that is connected to the Pi and turns on at night and off in the morning.

Hope that helps!
