Published on December 21, 2014

Arduino and cloudBit-based weather station showing temperature, condition and sunrise/sunset.
Uses just one cloudBit, a set of ifttt recipes and Arduino to drive three servos.
See attached 'Signal explanation.xlsx' to understand signals better.

How To Make It

1

connect usb power to fork

2

connect wire, cloudBit and light sensor to the fork

3

connect wire to Arduino's d0

4

connect cloudBit output to Arduino's a0

5

connect light sensor to a wire

6

connect rgb light to the wire

7

connect servos to d1, d5 and d9 outputs of Arduino

8

make three rectangular holes in a piece of cardboard to host servos

9

insert and secure servos

10

unscrew servos' accessories and make three round holes in a piece of paper that will serve as dials base

11

draw dials on the paper like on photo (sorry guys, the temperature is in Celsius =) )

12

put paper on top of servos

13

screw the accessories back to servos over the paper

14

secure the rgb light at the top of dial (e.g. with play-doh)

15

upload Arduino sketch

16

setup cloudBit

17

create recipes from the attached file on ifttt.com

18
