If you've been following our previous Maker Monday projects, you will know that we just finished putting together a wake up lightFor 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 list on our Maker 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.
