This project is a continuation of my earlier weather station project. It was quite popular on the web, people around the globe made their own by following it and give valuable feedback for improvement. By taking consideration of the comments and Q&A section of my earlier project, I decided to make this new version Weather Station. I also made a custom PCB for this project, so anyone with little knowledge on electronics circuit can be made this project. My V-2.0 PCB can also be used for many application in Arduino platform. Following are the salient features of the new weather station.


Features:

1. Connect to Wi-Fi, and upload the data to the web ( Blynk App and Thingspeak)

2. Monitoring Weather parameters like Temperature, Pressure, Humidity, altitude and UV level etc.

3. Extra ports to add more sensors

4. Remote Battery Status Monitoring

5. Uses a powerful Li-Ion Battery ( 3400 mAh ) and Solar Panel (1W)

6. Independence from the external power source

7.Can be installed in remote sites or geographically challenging environments

8. Being Solar powered, it is an environment-friendly device.


Update 05.08.2019

Now you can buy the PCB and all the components in a single Kit from PCBWay

Note:Battery and 3D printed enclosure is not included in the kit

      If you got a low score from me, I don't think you fit for I can solder content. Sorry for that, at least I tried to rate your design. I am an artist. I design electronics and brass wire sculptures. www.jiripraus.cz

      NOTE: If you have a project that I don't think is for beginners (or I don't understand what it is/lacks documentation) - you'll automatically get a low score from me even though your project is really cool.
