LCC Requirements

The Lizard Climate Control system has these requirements (updated as they change):

  • turn lights and heaters on/off at specified times
  • maintain specified temperatures during day and night
  • report current temperature/humidity both locally (at cage) and remotely via internet
  • manual bypass of Arduino control of AC switches
  • built in fail-safe for over temperature situations
  • protect sensors from lizard and other in-cage hazards
  • visual indication of temperature situation (green=good, red=bad etc)
  • document it!

 

Lizard Climate Control

The background for the project is simple, the mission- not necessarily so.

New Baby Bearded Dragon. Gotta have heat and light, on a schedule and deal with over/under heating conditions. I could fork over $60+ for a ready to go solution or I could make my own.

Guess which I went for? Arduino to the rescue!

Keep watching for pics, code and schematics as I build it. Basic requirements are here.
