Weather Station using Arduino - Web Server - IoT

Arduino Weather Station Web Server

In this tutorial we are going to make a weather station that will tell us temperature, humidity and heat index of a particular location. It will show these values in a web browser. You can monitor these data by entering the IP address in a mobile, computer or any other device which supports a web browser. This project is done using Arduino Uno, ESP8266 and DHT22 sensor. DHT22 sensor will read temperature and humidity information. ESP8266 WiFi module is used to establish network communication. Arduino [...]

IoT Data Logger using Arduino and ESP8266

IoT Data Logger using Arduino and ESP8266

Today we are going to make an IoT WiFi data logger using Arduino, ESP8266 WiFi module and DHT22 temperature humidity sensor. Arduino is reading temperature and humidity sensed by DHT22 and sending it to an internet server using the ESP8266 WiFi module. Here we are using ThingSpeak as the internet server. ThingSpeak is an open source IoT application which can be used as an Internet or Intranet Server. It is providing HTTP API for data logging, location tracking, status updates etc. Components Required [...]

Home Automation System using Arduino and ESP8266

Home Automation using Arduino and ESP8266 Module

In this project we are going to make a home automation system using ESP8266 WiFi module and Arduino Uno. Using this we will be able to control lights, electric fan and other home appliances through a web browser using your PC or mobile. These AC mains appliances will be connected to relays which are controlled by the Arduino. ESP8266 and Arduino together acts as a Web Server and we will send control commands through a Web Browser like Google [...]

Digital Door Lock using Arduino

Digital Door Lock using Arduino

As thefts are increasing day by day security is becoming a major concern nowadays. In this project we will make a digital door lock system with keypad using Arduino Uno. It will open your door only when the right password is entered and it will start beeping when a wrong password is entered. Components Required 4x4 keypad LCD Arduino Uno Push Pull Solenoid TIP 120 NPN transistor Power Supply Breadboard 1KΩ, 220Ω Resistor 10KΩ Potentiometer Buzzer Connecting wires Circuit Diagram & Explanation First [...]

LED Chaser using 4017 and 555 Timer - PCB

LED Chaser using 4017 Counter and 555 Timer

Introduction A simple LED chaser hobby circuit can be made using 555 timer and CD4017 counter IC. You can use this circuit for decorative purposes. By modifying the circuit in a proper way, you can even use this to control lights working on AC mains. Components Required CD4017 Counter IC - 1 555 Timer IC - 1 LED - 11 680Ω Resistor - 11 10KΩ Resistor - 1 10KΩ Variable Resistor - 1 10μF Capacitor - 1 0.01μF Capacitor - 1 9V [...]

Rain Alarm using 555 Timer - PCB

Rain Alarm using 555 Timer

Here is a simple and interesting hobby circuit that can be made using the popular 555 timer IC. As you might already know, a 555 Timer can be easily wired as Astable, Monostable or Bistable multivibrator. This circuit can be used as rain sensor, water overflow sensor or as a water level sensor. This circuit make use the principle that normal water can conduct some amount of electricity (PURE water is not a good conductor of electricity but water seen [...]

ANL on breadboard

Automatic Night Lamp using LDR

Automatic night lamp as the name suggests is for turning ON and OFF the lamp automatically without the need of human interventions. It senses the light intensity from surroundings and find whether its day or night. And it automatically turns ON when the surrounding is dark and it turns OFF when it receives light from surroundings. A sensor called LDR is used to detect the light intensity. This project finds wide outdoor applications in streets, gardens and public places [...]

12V Capacitor Dropper Power Supply Output

Transformerless Capacitor Dropper Power Supply

I already posted about transformerless power supplies in the article, Transformerless DC Power Supply. Here we will see how to design a capacitor dropper power supply. Capacitor power supplies are simple, low cost and light weight solution for providing dc supplies to circuits which require low currents. It is low cost and light weight since there is no bulky transformers. Circuit Diagram The 200mA fuse will protect the circuit from mains during shot circuit or component failures. The 275V MOV (Metal Oxide Varistor) [...]
