Weather Station Project

Overview

I've always wanted to build a weather station. I have an interest in weather science but, for me a weather station is all of the stuff I like about electronics - real world use of remote sensing that can be used for practical stuff. From home automation to gardening to knowing what's in the air, local weather and environmental sensing can be used to make subtle cumulative changes that add up to better health and lower bills.

Goals

The basic goals of this project are to build a set of instruments that record to a central database the following environmental conditions:

Equally important but secondary in order is a station that measures air quality. Since air quality is somewhat subjective for my use case, I will focus on this group after the initial station has matured and is stable.

This data should be stored in a local database for analysis and consumption by other devices / applicaitons.

Applicable uses include

Timeline

Currently, I do not have a fixed deadline for this project group. I have already made some progress which I will detail in future posts.
