Are there any IP-based #IoT systems that are specifically made to work without a connection to the public internet?

I’m unreasonably happy to have implemented #Bézier curves in #OpenSCAD today. Other than having an API that I like better than others, I’m not sure just what it is that’s making me happy about this.

The single most useful and underappreciated means of learning to #code better is to read and comprehend other people's code. Today I learned: | on the makefile dependencies line. Never seen once before in the half+ of my life I've been doing this.
Very nicely created graphs and analysis on #CO2 and other #greenhouse gases from @OurWorldInData : https://ourworldindata.org/co2-and-other-greenhouse-gas-emissions
Would love to buy one of those @hestiapi open-source thermostats currently being crowdfunded, but my house has two heating/AC zones, and I don't think it works with that. Still: recommended. #indieiot #iot #thermostat #nest https://www.crowdsupply.com/makeopenstuff/hestiapi-touch
