Weather Station with DHT11 & BMP180 Sensors
Have you ever looked at those weather stations in your local retail catalogues and wish you had one but couldn't justify the expense ? Well, using a few components you can build one for yourself, maybe even cheaper than the one at the shops. A weather station monitors local weather an can have many sensor to monitor temperature, humidity, air pressure, rainfall, wind speed, etc. Building one from scratch using a few cheap sensors and an arduino uno board (or compatible) can be quite simple, it just requires a little of your time once you have the components.
- Arduino UNO
- DHT11 - Temp. & Humidity sensor + 220 R Resistor
- BMP180 - Pressure sensor
- Arduino Protoshiled or Breadboard
- LED + 220 Ohm Resistor (Optional)
- Some wires for connection
