sWeather is a modular DIY weather station which can be built and configured by everyone. The base station contains sensors for temperature, air humidity and air pressure. The weather station is expandable with many sensors and can therefore be adapted to the user’s needs.
With the assembly instruction everyone can build his own weather station. The user can decide which sensors he wants to install to measure weather and environmental data. With the sweather website the user can check his individual weather data from all around the world.
The target group of sWeather is very diversified. It can be used by farmers, hobby meteorologists, anglers and many more. Also people with allergies can profit from the sWeather sensors.
A large number of sensors allow measurements of standard data such as temperature and air pressure, up to data such as fine dust and radioactivity. Those sensors can be easily added and configured on the website. Thus sWeather is absolutely tailored to your personal needs.
Open Data Map
With the collected data of the users the user can also see where further sensors are located on a heat map with the collected data of other sensors. Due to the open data character of sWeather, an area-wide weather forecast can be generated. The user can then register his weather station on sweather.de. All data collected is stored in a database and can be accessed via this website. The responsive design of the website allows access with any type of device.
One of our sensors is an electric voltmeter (field mill). This enables the prediction of rain and thunderstorms. Thus making it possible to make even more precise statements about weather changes. With a field mill you are also able to analyse the electrosmog in the environment.
Further special features
In addition to the current and past sensor values, the weather station also offers a forecast of up to three days. These weather data is currently still provided by a publicly accessible service. With an increasing number of users, we can also produce the forecasts ourselves and thus provide meaningful forecasts across the board.
Here you will find an example page with two stations.
And here you will find detailed instructions, the arduino code and the files for 3D-printing to build your own, individually configured sWeather station.
