Building a Solar-Powered Remote Environmental Monitor With @Adafruit Materials

Over on the Adafruit forums, user biod101 shares the construction of weatherproof, solar powered monitoring boxes for use in the harsh environmental conditions of southern Arizona.

In the video above, he uses an Adafruit Feather FONA cellular enabled microcontroller https://www.adafruit.com/product/3027 along with

He modeled the build using the following guides in the Adafruit Learning System:

Finally, he started a thread in the Adafruit forums for soliciting improvements from the Adafruit Community: https://forums.adafruit.com/viewtopic.php?f=54&t=136455

This is an excellent example of using the educational materials available from Adafruit along with parts in the shop and forum support to complete a spectacular project build. Thank you for sharing!

Have you built something cool with Adafruit products? If so please post information in the comments or preferably in the Adafruit forums – we want to hear what you are up to!


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.
