Environmental Nest using Grove

Posted by openPicus | On: Mar 13 2012

We would like to share an idea for a new Nest expansion board. We would want to make a flexible expansion for FLYPORT modules to read various sensors and to act with relay and so on.

We found very interesting the range of sensors with a standard connector from Seeed Studio (very low cost as well) called GROVE system. It’s quite complete range and very low cost.

From Seeedstudio website: “The GROVE – Starter Kit of GROVE System is a modular, safe and easy to use group of items that allow you to minimise the effort required to get started with microcontroller-based experimentation and learning.”

We want to make more expansion boards and we think this one has tons of possible applications. Share with us your ideas on the openPicus ForumWe already received an intelligent request: the board has to be battery powered as option….and what else?

    Hope its soon……. cannot hold on. LoL

  2. Good news: Flyport Ethernet will be available to buy tomorrow!

    This is an awesome solution, I will start soon to develop a complete thermostat with web and Mobile interface,would be great if I could buy all the Grove sensors in your shop!
