LOOK OUT NEST — HERE COMES THE WIOT-2

The WIoT-2 is less of a weather station and more of an info center for their house — conveniently located by their front door — for just about anything [Dave] or his partner need to know when entering or exiting their home. It displays indoor temperature and humidity, date, time, garbage collection schedule, currency exchange rates, whether the garage door is open or closed, the hot tub’s temperature, a check in for his kids, current weather data from a custom station [Dave] built outside his house, and the local forecast.

WIoT-2’s display is a Nextion TFT and the brains behind the operation is a NodeMCU 8266. He made extensive use of Blynk to handle monitoring of the various feeds, and will soon be integrating master control for all the networked outlets in the house into the system. He found setting up the hardware to be fairly clear-cut but notes that he cannot have the screen powered on when uploading sketches to the NodeMCU.  He circumvented the problem by adding a latching switch to the screen’s power line.LOOK OUT NEST — HERE COMES THE WIOT-2 21 300x225 LOOK OUT NEST — HERE COMES THE WIOT-2 22 300x181 LOOK OUT NEST — HERE COMES THE WIOT-2 23 241x300 LOOK OUT NEST — HERE COMES THE WIOT-2 34
