From the Forums: Greenhouse DataLogger – A First Project! #Arduino
Congrats to jverhagen for completing your first project and sharing about it in the Adafruit Forums:
Many thanks to the Adafruit team for excellent libraries and others on this board for posting excellent questions. I was able to resolve any problem I came across through research. With this site and well as a few others I was able complete this project on spare time, less family and job constraints, in about 8 weeks. This project was started because I needed a way to log the min/max temperatures in the green house to see if any additional cooling was required. It kind morphed into something bigger.
easy reading of the display in sunlight,
show past temperatures with date and time
record the temperatures/humidity in x minute intervals
The following items were purchased to make it happen.
Adafruit Assembled Data Logging shield for Arduino: Here’s a handy Arduino shield: we’ve had a lot of people looking for a dedicated and well-designed data logging shield. We worked hard to engineer an inexpensive but well-rounded design. Not only is it easy to assemble and customize, it also comes with great documentation and libraries. New! we now are carrying an ‘assembled’ version of this shield, with all the components pre-soldered. NOTE: You will only need to solder on either plain 0.1″ headers (included) or stacking headers (not include) to attach to your ‘duino. (read more)
Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
