Use Adafruit IO with a Raspberry Pi Pico W to Create IoT Dashboards @Raspberry_Pi #PiDay #RaspberryPi
Climate control in a house is nice. Universal climate control would be nice as well, although it would also be a little bit Lex Luthorish. But in your home, it’s nice to be able to know what’s going on in each room. In this project, Michael Horne find uses the Raspberry Pi Pico W to display environmental data for the different rooms in his house. Here’s more from Raspberry Pi Pod:
I decided recently to set up a string of temperature sensors around our house to work out the temperature profile of different rooms.
With the recent release of the Pico W, I realised that I could do this quite simply, as long as I could find a way to “nicely” display the data.
You’ll have read my exploits with Anvil last week, I expect, and saw that I didn’t have much luck. However, I knew that Adafruit had their very own IoT platform – Adafruit IO – and that it had been around awhile, so I thought I’d give that a try and document it.
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
