I’ll put the files up on a google drive and send a link for a folder to download here in a bit.

Yes, micro-python gives you lots of option. We use TLS1.2 encryption of our data, run a broker at one of our regional headquarters and also have a FTP-Secure server to remotely update both the XBee and the Teensy 3.5 processor I use as the datalogger. The Teensy runs a special bootloader that allows it to boot off the SD Card file. So I can pull the new file from the server with the XBee and then transfer via the serial port to the Teensy as it writes it to the card. Reboot and boom, new program is running.
