Question checklist

  • Recommendation questions:

    • Have you read Are any shopping questions on topic? and the related answers?
    • Have you specified your requirements in detail, including cost/availability if relevant?
    • Have you listed any research that you have done beforehand, and stated why the options you found are not appropriate?
  • General hardware questions:

    • Is the question related to the Internet of Things specifically? General hardware questions may not be on-topic here.
