The purpose of this project was to utilize an older Raspberry Pi’s to collect weather data outside my office window. Often times, the local weather within my area varies from the weather reported by weather services.
I also wanted to publish the weather data to my MQTT service to display and use in my home automation platform. I use Home Assistant for my home automation and it comes with a nice MQTT broker add-on.
