What is the problem?
I am trying to setup an auto shutdown procedure that will turn off my printer when some analog sensors (Carbon Monoxide and Temperature) read too high. Right now I have all of the sensor part of the build mostly completed, right now I am wondering whats the easiest way to set this up to attach it to Octoprint.
What did you already try to solve it?
My original idea was to have one startup script that just checks the values and then would turn off a relay if any value went too high (If anyone knows where I should put the command to run the script that would be great). I also wanted to integrate some of the features into the UI, using this post I tried to configure a power on and power off button which worked fine but I cant seem to figure out how to send the sensor data to the UI using the output from the sensors. I was trying to see if I can just print something in python as a return but it does not seem to work.
