If you've been following our previous Maker Monday projects, you will know that we just finished putting together a wake up light. For our newest Maker Monday project, we decided to make a temperature logger (which will also measure humidity and air pressure). Part 1 (of 2) has just gone live on our Paessler YouTube channel! Here's what we did.
Assembling a Temperature Logger
Bernd, an IT administrator here at Paessler, takes us through the steps of creating a temperature logger using a Bosch atmospheric sensor (BME280) and an ESP32 chip as a basis (you can find out more about the reasons for choosing the ESP32 chip over something like a Ledunia stick in the video). For a full list of what we used, refer to the parts liston ourMaker Monday GitHub page.
This week's episode focuses on setting up the ESP32 chip and the Bosch sensor on a PCB, while the next part (release date: 23rd July) will show you how to install the software and integrate the unit into Home Assistant.
Check out the video below, and subscribe to our YouTube channel to get the latest episodes when they're released. Also, let us know in the comments if there's anything you want to see on Maker Monday in the future.
Please note: we are currently experiencing problems with our comments form. This makes us sad, because we love your comments. If you wrote a comment recently and nothing appeared, please don't think we're ignoring you! We are currently working on the issue. Thank you for your understanding and patience!
