Simple wireless sensor system
As a part of home automation system for my house, I have designed a wireless sensors system that can continuously monitor temperature, humidity, light and atmospheric pressure of multiple spots in the building.
This repository contains all elements required to build your own wireless sensor system based on ATmega328P, Raspberry PI and NRF24L01:
|board||Schematic and PCB design of wireless sensor module|
|firmware||Arduino-compatible firmware for wireless sensor module|
|example-server||Simple wireless sensors server for Raspberry PI|
As I mentioned, this wireless sensor system is a part of home automation system for my house. At the moment, I have five wireless sensors connected to it. Each sensor module sends new readings in 16 seconds intervals and is powered by 3xAA rechargeable batteries - it is enough to power the module for over 2 months. Power consumption is ~0.05 mA in sleep mode and 20-30 mA while measurements.
Cost of single module
|PCB||$0.88||... if you order 20 PCB from EasyEDA (does not include shipping cost)|
