Introduction: Smart Thermostat
In this instructable we look at how to build a Smart Thermostat. What makes this thermostat so smart you ask? Here is a list of some of its smart features:
- It can be controlled by your Android device, which gives you one less reason to get up from the couch or get out of bed.
- High accuracy temperature measurement capability. The cheap thermostats that are in most homes can have error ranges of +/- 2 degrees!
- High resolution temperature settings to go with the great temperature accuracy, if you have a very slim temperature comfort zone this will give you the temperature setting resolution to hit your zone.
- No more trying to change the temperature or search for a setting with only one or two buttons and a tiny screen, this thermostat comes with a lot of buttons and a large display for making easy and quick changes.
The project is laid out in a series of three videos. The Arduino code can be found on GitHub (link provided in video). You can access the Andriod App .aia file using this link: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/26591541/Smart...
