A cool example of creation of controllable 1-wire thermostat. The author claims that there is a production thermostat with similar functionality tagged at $54.82. So, it depends to you buy it or make it by yourself.

Weather Toys by Tim Bitson

Weather Toys

If you have ever wanted to build your own weather station, then Weather Toys by Tim Bitson is for you. The book covers all aspects of the weather measurement: from the basics of weather monitoring to the use of 1-Wire devices in the automation projects based on your 1-Wire weather station.

I’d like to notice that the book doesn’t cover development under Linux (it says only about Windows and Mac). But since all examples there use Java it won’t be difficult to build and run them under Linux as well.
