Weather Log

I set up an IoT weather station, and placed it in my backyard to collect data.
This required:

  • Assembling the IoT device from components I bought. I used an ESP8266 as the microprocessor.
  • Programming it to sample the weather, and send the data to my site. I installed and used MicroPython for this on the device.
  • Setting up my site to receive and store the weather data

(NB: it was placed on a black chair, and in the sunlight. It is possible that affected the results - it never really got over 50°C!
