If you love keeping track of the weather for surfing, camping, bird watching or any other kinds of outdoor activities, and also love to fiddle with Electronics and the various exciting Environmental Sensors available to hobbyists, then you’re going to be really excited when you see this Weather Station DIY Kit, which is a fun environmental sensor station that includes an Anemometer, a Wind Vane, a Rain Bucket, a DHT22 Temperature & Humidity Sensor, as well as an integrated Barometer!

This awesome weather station is a DIY kit that is both fun to use and extremely functional for anyone who loves outdoor activities or environmental analysis. With a full range of different sensors from mechanical to Electronic Sensors, you can measure precise weather conditions to identify weather patterns, predict upcoming weather, or simply record the data to share online or utilise at a later stage. And while it is a DIY kit, it features sensors that are more than capable of high precision, meaning that you could even use this weather station for professional or commercial applications too.

Please Note: When uploading code to the Weather Station DIY Kit, make sure to unplug the TX/RX data lines, as this can interfere with the upload.

Extra Note: This Weather station DIY Kit does not include a microcontroller, and this is so that you can choose the ideal MCU to cater to your specific needs. However, we recommend using a simple Arduino UNO or ESP8266 WeMos Board, as these are relatively easy to use, and are very affordable compared to many other alternatives on the market.
