House Temperature Monitor using Arduino

Recently a family member had his furnace fail while he was away from his house for a long period of time in the winter. His pipes burst and caused quite the mess. This project describes a temperature sensor that broadcasts the temperature in his house to the pachube data logging website. This allows him to check on his house from anywhere he has internet access. What is it? This project includes a temperatu ...

Spectrum Analyzer, Arduino project with FFT algorithm

The basic idea was to create color organ / spectrum analyzer on arduino board, trying to minimize quantity of external components, like analog filters, LED display drivers, etc. Spend a lot of time in search on internet I was able to find only two ! project ,  which implemented FFT in order to solve a problem. One of them is: http://elm-chan.org/works/akilcd/report_e.html in a few days it will celebrate 6-t ...

Arduino 4x4x4 LED Cube

Overview: This instructable will cover the building process of an 4x4x4 LED Cube. I will be using an Arduino to control the LEDs.  Since the Arduino (Freeduino) has a total of 20 pins (including the analog pins) we will not need to have any multiplexing or shift registers.  I will take you though what i did in order to build the cube and create some designs of your own. Step 1: Bill of Materials Bill of Mat ...

Color Changing Night Light with ATtiny using Arduino

I wanted to create something for my wife as a present and this is what I came up with. This is a dark activated color changing night light. It has a sensor that can tell when the room light is turned off. This then will light a RGB LED and slowly fade through different colors. Its brains is a ATtiny85, but you could also use an Arduino.  We have little boys that would appreciate this on at night. Step 1: Pa ...

Squirt – Arduino, motion activated water cannon

Squirt is a motion activated water cannon using Arduino. This was designed for use in the garden but as it's winter we tested it in the bathroom. It works! True motion tracking is expensive and complicated so this system activates when the victim moves into range and randomises the position of the cannon and the firing time within a limited area. The sometimes fickle readings from the PIR sensor just adds t ...

Temperature Control For Kitchen Appliances using Arduino

In this Instructable, I will step through controlling the temperature of most kitchen appliances. As an example, I will use an old Westbend Poppery popcorn maker (aka. coffee roaster), but these same techniques will be applicable to most hot plates, coffee makers, and waffle irons. This instructable puts you at risk of electrocuting or burning yourself. I will do my best to point out potential pitfalls, but ...

Arduino RFID Door Lock

***Updated 8/9/2010*** I wanted to make an easy and secure way to enter my garage. RFID was the best way to unlock my door, even with my hands full I can unlock the door and push it open! I built a simple circuit with a basic ATMega 168 arduino chip and a ID-20 RFID reader to control an electronic door lock. The circuit consists of 3 separate parts, a Reader to read RFID tags, a Controller to accept data fr ...

Plantduino Greenhouse using an Arduino

This summer I wanted to combine my two loves of plant science and engineering. Thus I am constructing my very own greenhouse in my backyard. I am an undergrad, and as any former student knows, this means I move around constantly, and I am not always around to take care of my vegetable garden. I love my plants but since I am moving back to school in July, and my family is unreliable, I need a way to make sur ...
