No-Code IoT CO2 “Canary In a Coalmine”
Much like the canaries that were kept in coal mines to detect gases, this build uses a CO2 sensor to detect indoor air quality. When the air quality is poor, the bird will drop, until you open your windows and bring it back to life! – Adafruit Learning System
FloWat – Sustainably Powered Water Flow Analyzer
A “sustainable way to analyze flow rates in irrigation pipes for agriculturists without needing to worry about changing the battery every day”. An F50 Hydroelectric Generator charges and powers the FloWat’s sensor node. Data about the water flow (in mL and Water flow per revolution) is logged to the internet over WiFi. – FloWat
Tiny LED WiFi Companion Cube
This tiny LED cube scrolls messages from the internet. – Adafruit Learning System
WiFi Mailbox Notifier
Inconsistent US Postal Service delivery times led Kattni towards building a notifier “that tells you when your mailbox has been opened.” – Adafruit Learning System
Water Detector with Home Assistant
Andres Leon’s indoor air conditioner’s condensation pipe clogged and caused a small flood. In lieu of purchasing an off-the-shelf solution, they “decided to spend an inordinate amount of time, money, and effort into creating a water alarm device.” If a flood is detected, their device emits a high-pitched alarm and sends an email and text message. The 2500mAh LiPO battery runs for about 2439 hours. – GitHub
Affordable Solar-Powered Weather Station
The fourth revision of Debasish Dutta’s weather station is designed to be placed in remote areas which lack data-driven weather predictions. The “Solar Powered WiFi Weather Station V4.0” is solar-powered and transmits data using a LoRa module to a base receiver. – HackADay.io
