In many scientific experiments, it is imperative to minimize the unintended effects of variables other than the independent variables. Temperature, pressure, and gas levels are factors controlled to a certain extent using expensive climate-controlling technology, yet the resolution for monitoring their levels is generally low. The downward scaling of communication-enabled electronics in size, cost, and energy provides a potential toolset for tracking such data with high spatial and temporal resolutions. We establish a data collection methodology through a low-cost, small footprint distributed network system of modules that records data in a remote server. The system architecture allows for increased spatial resolutions, demonstrates high precision of measurements, and investigates room dynamics. Modules are fabricated using commercial sensors such as the ESP8266, BME680, and TCS34725. In this paper, we propose a temperature prediction model using adaptive filter methodologies to learn the relationship between thermal fluctuations at distinct locations within a lab environment.
