As we become more environmentally aware of our surroundings we require more information about it. This series of shields which plugs right onto the Arduino with Arduino compatible pins is capable of sensing a whole bunch of environmental variables including a Digital Gas sensor which measures CO2 and VOC’s an Altimeter which measures Barometric Pressure and Altitude, a one wire Temperature Sensor DS18B20 (Non I2C), a Temperature Humidity Sensor and last but not least a Voltage Current sensor which is capable of sensing Input power or using a clip on Current meter you can sense your house power usage. All this on one small board to see what’s happening real time or go on line and watch your house while your away. In addition we will be adding motion sensors and 120 Volts power supply module to power the whole unit with one plug and activate a relay upon motion or by an application.
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
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.
