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!


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
