AfterShock!

Earthquakes!   If you have ever been in one, they are a shaking experience! AfterShock measures how strong the earthquake was at your location by measuring the shaking of the earth right at home.   Local! Local! Local!



This kit is easy to build and requires NO SOLDERING!   Great for your home, cabin or classroom.
The WeatherSense AfterShock Sensor is the latest in the SwitchDoc Labs line of Solar Powered 433MHz environmental sensors designed to hook up with your Raspberry Pi.    AfterShock is a seismic sensor which is different than a seismograph and is much less expensive.   AfterShock is designed to pick up earthquakes that could potentially damage your home, equipment or business.   It does not continuously report earth movement (such as caused by trucks or people walking), but only reports earth movement that AfterShock determines looks like an earthquake.

AfterShock uses a sophisticated algorithm to detect whether an earthquake has occurred  at your location and reports back how strong the earthquake (at your local location!) was using the SI (Seismic Instensity) Scale to your Raspberry Pi!   
Comes with great open source software for the Rapsberry Pi!  All of this  great data is saved by your Raspberry Pi receiving this data using a sophisticated Software Defined Radio (SDR).   More coolness.   And these are solar powered!  No messy power cords. No plugs. Hang it up in a tree!   Oooo.  And all that wonderful solar power data (solar panels, battery and computer power) are sent back to your Pi too!   More Data!  More Cowbell!  These units will transmit about 100m (~300ft) depending on what you have between the unit and your receiver.  You can always add a bigger antenna however!
At SwitchDoc Labs, we believe in providing projects that generate great data and great learning experiences.   With the WeatherSense products, you build the units, learn how they work and then you can modify them with all the software being Open Source!
