OurWeather is a connected weather station containing 7 different sensors that will teach about electronics, software and the weather. It contains all the sensors and wires to make a fully functional, WiFi weather station. No software programming is required, it works right out of the box.

Now with a new Blynk App for getting your OurWeather weather off your phone!

However, if you want to change the way OurWeather works, add your own software or do something entirely different, we have the Open Source software available. And what is one of the coolest features of OurWeather? Building the kit requires NO SOLDERING. It is all plug and play based building, with a full step-by-step photograph based instruction manual. It is a safe and educational way to learn about weather, electronics and science topics. You can watch our successful kickstarter video here: https://youtu.be/pw6hSNSQnsM

OurWeather Complete Weather Kit?

The OurWeather station is a complete weather kit that you can build and modify yourself.

 

"Overall, this was a fun build that took a total of about a leisurely weekend to complete. The hardware and software is well thought out and easy to assemble.
SwitchDoc labs delivered exactly the experience we were hoping for…although there are some blinky lights on the circuit board just to make it feel like a STEM project. ;)" Rene D.
"We have an almost 4 year old daughter and we are starting to introduce technology. We are combining my love of weather and my wife's IT background
to explore weather together as a family. We are very excited about the possibilities OurWeather will bring for us to learn." G.K.
" I'm really pleased with SwitchDoc products and had a good time putting it together today! I am so excited to get my weather station up and running,
so glad you guys made the weather kit available. It's a great introductory project for me." Laura

3D Printed Radiation Shield

WeatherPiASCover

Here is a design we use for wall mounting an AM2315 temperature / humidity sensor. Depending on your installation, you may use a freestanding radiation shield like thisone on Thingiverse ( http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:804356 ).

More Technical Background

Advanced Usage

OurWeather is designed to be accessable to a wide range of different ages and skill levels. Out of the box, you can easily see and get weather information from OurWeather by the supplied web page and included OLED display. Plug it in, and it works.

For those who wish to dig in a little deeper and build software on Raspberry Pis to read information from OurWeather and use it in their own programs, we provide a REST interface. Simple to use. Let’s say your OurWeather is located at the address of 192.168.1.134 (OurWeather will tell you what address it is at during startup after you have set it up). For example: http://192.168.1.134/OutdoorTemperature will return:

{“OutdoorTemperature”: 22.10, “id”: “1”, “name”: “OurWeather”, “connected”: true}

Very cool. Actually, 22.10 is in Celsius so it is a nice temperature. 72F.

All the weather information is available by similar calls.

We provide the source code up on github.com for OurWeather so you can modify it yourself for those who want to dig in even deeper.

Software Updates

OurWeather supports software updates OTA (Over the Air) so you can always go and grab our latest software off of www.SwitchDoc.com by using your OurWeatherAdmin.html web page. You are never out of date with the latest and greatest!

Technology

OurWeather is based on a special board designed by SwitchDoc Labs called WeatherPlus.

WeatherPlus contains an ESP8266 processor (includes WiFi) and does not require an external computer to run. If you want to program the WeatherPlus board, we supply all of the source code to allow you to do that. The software for the board is written using the Arduino IDE with the ESP8266 libraries added.

OurWeather is a very open project that can be used many different ways. It is not a sealed unit that can not be modified. We embrace the open source model of software!
