Sparkostat3

Very cool thermostat project from Greg Cunningham this week in our community!

This is a WiFi thermostat I started at the end of last year, but let it sit on the desk for 8 months to monitor over the seasons. A week ago I finally hooked it up and let it run. It’s based on the Spark Core (now Particle) and doesn’t have schedules. It scales the desired temperature range to the current forecast, so it doesn’t actually run very often because your indoor temperature follows the outdoor temperature somewhat so it’s not triggered as often as a constant setting or scheduled jumps. It’s a super simple project, but some parts may be hard to find.(read more)

The dress is simple but unique with its built-in, light-up necklace. Its purpose is to stand out.(read more)
