What can this box do?
This kit takes measurement of its two precision temperature sensors, and logs the data to a SD card. Both real time readings and stored data can be sent wirelessly to a PC.
How is it useful?
One of the two temperature sensors is located inside the box, and the other one outside on a 1.2 meter cable. By locating the two temperature sensors in two different areas (e.g. indoor and under floor). We can see the temperature variations of the two areas over time. One good use case is to measure how good your home insulation is. Having said that, this kit is designed with DIY in mind. Extra sensors can be added very easily, and soldering is minimum because of the use of the sensor shield. By adding a humidity sensor, light sensor, wind speed sensor etc, this box can be turned into a wireless weather station!
What is included in this kit?
This wireless sensor and data logger kit embodies a few very cool technologies: Real Time Clock, SD Card read/write, Bluetooth and one wire digital temperature sensor. Not only can it be easily turned into a general purpose wireless sensor logger, it also is a fantastic educational kit after all. This kit includes all the neccessary bits to construct a fully working wireless sensor logger, the package includes:
- Arduino Mega 2560
