I found time over the holidays to mess with one of my old original projects- the Tri-Temp It was very interesting to poke around in some of my original hardware/code and add some things to it. Attached is a gallery of pics from the latest incarnation. I'll add the code changes and an updated schematic … Continue reading Tri-Temp Update
I hope to get to play with my arduino projects over the next week when I'm off for the holidays. The first hardware version of Lizard Climate Control project is still faithfully running with no glitches. The only adjustments I ever make are to the RTC which can't keep time to save its life. The … Continue reading Just no time!
I've started on LCC 2nd Gen or LCC2 or LCC II. I don't know what to call it. BUT I do know it'll be killer. This one is going to be everything LCC 1 was not. So far I have: Ethernet 64 GPIOs A better RTC 2 OLED displays The RTC can be updated via … Continue reading The Next Lizard Climate Control…
For the LCC project I had to add a real time clock (RTC) so that it could manage the light schedule independently of a PC. I added a fairly generic RTC shield. I could have used this one or this one. They both use the I2C bus and the DS1307 RTC chip. The example from … Continue reading Real Time Clock
I started with an Arduino Uno R3. Added an RTC shield to it and then another proto shield to add the Nokia LCD level shifter and the i/o headers for the sensors and AC controls. Pics below. All pretty standard stuff. I'll post the code later.
