Are you interested in weather patterns but frequently find yourself frustrated by the lack of precise data for your home? With this fantastic project written by Freetronics cofounder Jonathan Oxer you don’t need to rely on the national weather service anymore.
The weather station receiver allows you to build your own personal weather station for your home or office. The weather station consists of an external sensor system that transmits data to a display unit over a 433MHz transmitter. To get started creating your own weather station check out Practical Arduino.
Completing this project would be a great way to learn more about working with radio communications.
The wireless functionality in this project is based on a 433MHz wireless connection. These types of connections are very common and have the potential to be used in many different projects. If you are planning on working on this project, or any other that requires wireless communications, why not invest in our own 433MHz Receiver Shield. The shield has a large, gold plated prototyping area, three status LEDs and a built in reset button. For more information and to order visit the 433MHz Receiver Shield product page.
