Mark,

Thanks for doing this ! Aside of the "commercial" sensors, will you open 
the API or data format for the community ?
In such way, we could tailor our existed "telemetry devices" to be 
connected to LH ! I see lot of perspectives here. Seismic, radiation, 
lighting, main, air, light, gravity, you-name-it...

Regards,
Vlad
