Home Presence Simulator and Security Control Device

This project allow us to simulate presence and to detect movements in our home. We can configure a network of devices installed in differents rooms of our home all of them controlled by a main device. This project combines these features on a single device (PICTURE 1): It is a presence simulator: the device switchs on and off one light bulb (PICTURE 1) and use an IR transmitter (PICTURE ...

Portable Luxmeter

This project is about making portable luxmeter. It can be used in schools, where children can measure different kinds of light sources.Functions: 1. measure intensity of light in lux. 2. calculate solar irradiation from lux to watts/m2 (factor 112) 3. charging battery using USB port Total cost is around 13 $ without case. Luxmeter take 15 mA, so it will works long time on one Li-Ion battery. ...

Arduino Real Time Clock with Temperature Monitor

Hi guys, in one of our previous tutorials, we built a real-time clock with temperature monitor using the DS3231 and the 16×2 LCD display shield. Today, we will build an upgrade to that project by replacing the 16×2 LCD display with an ST7735 based 1.8″ colored TFT display. Apart from changing the display, we will also upgrade the features of the project by displaying the highest and lowest temperature that ...
