Jump to: navigation, search

The Lightrouter designed and created by A. Trawöger is a low-cost, low-energy-consumption replacement for the computer needed to run the IYA-Lightmeter. It is based on a commercial WLAN-router that is run under OpenWRT-linux to control the IYA-Lightmeter with minimum effort.
