Solar Powered Cellular Weather Station

Measure wind, rain, temperature, humidity, and light in remote locations using ThingSpeak, Particle, and the Sentient Things IoT Node.

This project describes the latest generation of a weather station used by the ThingSpeak team at MathWorks (see ThingSpeak Weather Station & Data Analysis for an earlier version).

This weather station provides the following improvements:

Optional solar power for locations without power
Easily repeatable and maintainable packaging and electronics based on the Sentient Things IoT Node
Updated firmware with micro SD card data logging, store and forwarding of data to overcome communication outages, and optional automatic ThingSpeak channel creation”
