Introduction: Clock and Weather Station
Pretty simple design here. It's a clock that is set and keeps track of the time and date. A button that displays current humidity and temperature.
Step 1: Connection for the LCD
This is the order of connection for the LCD screen
GND - Connects the the ground rail
VSS/VCC - Ground rail
VDD - Hot rail
Vo - potentiometer
RS - 7 port
RW - GND port on the breadboard.
E - 8 port
D4 - 9 port.
D5 - 10 port
D6 - 11 port
D7 - 12 port
A (anode) - Will go to the hot rail on the breadboard
K (cathode) - Will go to the ground rail on the breadboard
Step 2: Potentiometer and DS3231
The DS3231 is used to help keep time, similar to how a bios battery works.
VCC - Hot rail
GND - You guessed it, ground rail
SDA -> SDA port
SCL -> SCL port
Top pin goes to the LCD screen to control the contrast
Left pin is the hot rail
Right pin is the ground rail
Step 3: Final Build Step: Sensor and Button
The button is connect to port 2 so we can attach an interrupt *very important*
left pin is going to the hot rail
right pin is connected to the ground VIA a 220 ohm resistor
Temp and humidity sensor
Right most pin goes to the ground rail
Middle pin goes to the hot rail
Left pin goes to port 3
Once set up just run the attached code! The button changes the screen from time display to local temp and humidity.
