In this article, you are going to build a weather measurement station that will automatically send data to the cloud using the Temboo service. When building home automation projects, we love to connect our devices together wirelessly and to the web, especially using WiFi. One solution is to use WiFi breakout boards or shields, for example using the CC3000 WiFi chip, connect it to an Arduino board, and build your own code for the WiFi communication & remote interface. In this article, I will show you another approach using the Arduino Yun & Temboo.
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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
