DIY ethernet temperature and humidity logger

Monday, April 1st, 2013

Kerry Wong built an Ethernet temperature and humidity logger: I used an ENC28J60 Ethernet module along with an ATmega328p microcontroller to log the temperature and humidity readings and then process the data on my web server for display. To plot the data points, I used Google Annotated Timeline so that you...

Open source GSM/GPRS autonomous weather station

Wednesday, November 9th, 2011

Andrianakis built an autonomous data logging system using a GSM/GPRS cell phone modem module to transmit data to a online server. It's designed to read wind velocity for a future wind power station installation. A PIC16F877A communicates with a SIM900 GSM/GPRS module, and reads sensor values. By using a battery...
