by alexzad

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

STEP 1

connect usb power to fork

STEP 2

connect wire, cloudBit and light sensor to the fork

STEP 3

connect wire to Arduino's d0

STEP 4

connect cloudBit output to Arduino's a0

STEP 5

connect light sensor to a wire

STEP 6

connect rgb light to the wire

STEP 7

connect servos to d1, d5 and d9 outputs of Arduino

STEP 8

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

STEP 9

insert and secure servos

STEP 10

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

STEP 11

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

STEP 12

put paper on top of servos

STEP 13

screw the accessories back to servos over the paper

STEP 14

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

STEP 15

upload Arduino sketch

STEP 16

setup cloudBit

STEP 17

create recipes from the attached file on ifttt.com

STEP 18

power up and enjoy!
