👋 Well hello, April! Yes, it is April already. Doesn’t time fly? Here in the Netherlands, this month already provided us with some nice sunny days, with exceptional warm temperatures for the time of year…
Summer is coming! (yeah I know, it is barely spring 🌱). Nevertheless, I feel the need for a summer side project to tinker with, and I have been writing down quite a bunch of ideas. I figured it should be something for outside, something useful or interesting. Something that involves IoT (doh!).
So one of the ideas I came up with: A DIY Weather station….
“Frenck, wait, aren’t there tons of existing project for weather stations out there already?”
LOL, Yeah, there are. A lot. So what? 😬
Of course, I could just search for a DIY weather station project, and complete it as it was written. Instead, I’m looking at doing something a bit more extreme. More like: The Ultimate DIY Weather station. One that measures… All. One that runs on ESPHome. One that powers itself. One that provides so much data, that it becomes useless, but is impressive and cool at the same time.
Feel it already?
Time to start thinking about all things it could measure… Of course, it should measure the temperature! But should it measure sound pollution? UV? What else?
