Shopping for my Arduino/Pi weather station

posted 3 Oct 2014, 05:42 by Tom Cooper
With some basic plans in my head (and some written down below), I have been hitting the internet looking for suitable components. 
The inspiration from this project from Sparkfun can be seen in some of my choices. Here is what I have acquired so far:

For the weather station head

  • Weather sensors PPSEN-08942 SparkFun model from Proto-Pic £60 + VAT
  • SparkFun Weather Shield from Pimoroni.com £30. A bit expensive but pretty confident it will do the job and makes interfacing with the above sensors a little easier.

For the solar power

On top of that all I need is a handful of connectors and I'll power up the soldering iron and get going.
