Easy Temperature Sensing for Home Automation
ANAVI Thermometer is an open source hardware, Wi-Fi development board for measuring temperature that’s powered by an ESP8266 processor. It comes with a built-in DHT22/AM2302 temperature and humidity sensor and has slots for a mini OLED display, waterproof DS18B20 temperature sensor, and empty slots for up to three additional I2C sensor modules. All these features make ANAVI Thermometer appropriate for developers, makers, students and open source enthusiasts interested in home automation.
Getting started with ANAVI Thermometer is easy. No soldering is required. To turn on ANAVI Thermometer, just plug a standard USB charger into its microUSB connector. We will provide a comprehensive user’s manual with exact steps for using all the features of ANAVI Thermometer.
Certified Open Source
ANAVI Thermometer is an entirely open source project that combines open source hardware with free and open source software. It has been certified by the Open Source Hardware Associationunder UID BG000017.
The free and open source software tools KiCAD and OpenSCAD were used to design ANAVI Thermometer and its acrylic enclosure. Source code and schematics are available at GitHub. All units will be manufactured in Plovdiv, Bulgaria.
Fun For All Skill Levels
ANAVI Thermometer is fun and easy to use. You don’t need to be a tech whiz to use it. You can assemble it without any tools, and only a screwdriver is needed if you are adding a waterproof temperature sensor. Whether you’re a newbie to temperature sensing or a skilled engineer, ANAVI Thermometer is a great choice for most projects.
ANAVI Thermometer can also serve as a convenient development board for home automation that’s suitable for anyone interested in Internet of Things, coding, and open source.
ANAVI Thermometer is useful for:
- Monitoring indoor ambient temperature and humidity for home automation
- Monitoring temperature in liquids, for example a fish tank
- Logging data in open source software platforms like Home Assistant, OpenHAB, Domoticz, etc.
- Rapid Internet of Things prototyping and software development
- Learning embedded software development by saving you the hassle of breadboards and jumper cables
