Hello all. I need a list to do a project. Please help out I need a complete list of what I need pi bd also. I am new to this I have a strong computer hardware background but this is the first pi project I am starting. I need to create a weather station that will have the below: Solar power for all.(this is for a remote location) it is for a RC air field Wind speed, direction Temp Camera to look at the sky Wireless to connect to a hotspot (I already have) to send this info to me or to the weather underground. I do not need the humidity, but it would be a plus, no need for the rain gage.
thank you all for your help. links and programming help would be great.
I'm writing from France (sorry for my bad English knowledge sometimes) and receive few days ago a GroveWeatherPi station Kit. You have on Switchdoc shop site 2 bundles already explained in this forum and on tutorial:
On my new experience of this project, I think it's important to read all the 30 pages of tutorial. Not always easy to understand the first time, when we have no or little feedback on this kind of project.
For example I have ordered the Full Kit but forgetted the second one for solar option.
Today I have tryed to understand the wiring chapter ! Not so clear at the begining but after few hours spent, step by step all connections becomes clear.
I have printed on paper all boards delivered and re-draw a clear wiring diagram (I'm an old school man). Tutorial is not so easy to read and understand when you start from scratch.
Next step is to deal with : "what to install first" on Raspberry Pi after OS Raspbian Stretch (using NOOBS is so helfull). On GitHub switchdoc repository you can download a ZIP file containing all what you need. I'll try tomorrow in order to see if the system works. May be few questions will arrive but I'll post my question here and I'll find helping hand for sure.
Regarding Raspberry Pi model to use, it seems all models are tested. I'll begin with RPI 3B, and after RPI ZERO W version in order to compare. If RPI ZERO W will work fine for this project, I'll choose it.
