The Tabletop Weather Station is an open source touch-capable weather station. It measures temperature, humidity, air pressure and air quality index with high precision. The basic kit consists of
- Master Brick,
- Air Quality Bricklet
- LCD 128x64 Bricklet
- 2x Bricklet Cable 15cm (7p-10p)
- 3x Mounting Kit 12mm
- Mini USB Cable 180cm and
- Tabletop Weather Station case.
It can be controlled by an (Embedded-) PC. Control via Wi-Fi is possible if a WIFI Extension 2.0 is added. Alternatively the weather station can be controlled over your local network when adding an Ethernet Extension. To use it standalone you can add a RED Brick or another embedded board such as a Raspberry Pi.
The kit allows to modify soft- and hardware. The casing consists of tinker-friendly PMMA which can be easily modified (e.g. drill new holes with simple wood drill). Additionally mounting holes for other sensor Bricklets are available.
The kit can be extended by an Outdoor Weather Bricklet. Mounting holes and and an opening for the antenna are included in the Tabletop Weather Station enclosure. With this Bricklet you can receive data from the following wireless outdoor weather station and sensor:
