Raspberry Pi Weather Station

Raspberry Pi Weather Station

This is a Raspberry Pi Weather Station that collects data from a 433 MHz Temperature and Humidity sensor (Bresser THERMO/HYGRO RC TRANSMITTER), uuploads them on emoncms,

Update: 30 September 2017.
data.sparkfun.com goes bye bye on 31 Dec 2017. I am updated the code to use a different platform

The 433 MHz decoder is build around a Telecontrolli RR3 Super Regenerative Radio Receiver with Laser Trimmed inductor (translated: don’t buy the cheapest you will find online). Antenna is a simple wire roughly 17.3cm. 1/4 wave length of 433 MHz.

However i should change it to: 142.6464/frequency => 142.6464/433MHz/2= 16.47cm

I do have a proper 433 MHz antenna but still haven’t use it.

The 433 MHz module operates a 5V. In order to connect it to Raspberry Pi i had to convert it to 3V3, but wanted to avoid level shifters… so i used a 10K resistor in series with the data out pin of the module. It does the trick.

The idea is to provide an indication internally (have decided how to do it yet) based on the temperature/humidity and the following table

WET Any >70%
COM 20-25°C(68-77°F) 40-70%
DRY Any <40%
