    Well Keith Thanks a lot for your clear explanation. It sounds logical and since this is my first project, i guess adding the gas sensor is a bit overkill for me at this stage.So I like to stick with the digital sensors and see if I can get it to work on Blynk. It all works on Thingspeak, so board and periferals are OK.To get the GY-1145 and DS18B20 to work I need some directions, perhaps you can guide me a bit.1. To Add the GY-1145 what code to I need to add to the sketch, i.e.how to programme the i2C properly and what calculation to make to relay to proper UV index? Also, since the ' box' is a semi closed 3D printed box should it be placed outside the box?2. to add the DS18B20, can i connect it straight to the board or must is used the provided pluggable terminal. In that case the pin...

In that case the pin-layout is different and need some wires. Also what code is required to have this sensor read properly?3. For gas monitoring would the BME680 be a possible solution? Or even the Grove - Air Quality Sensor v1.3 which seem to operate on 3.3 V? My aim is to measure air quality as an index, like clean, moderate and polluted..4. Maybe not a proper question but Thingsspeak is only1 one year free registration and offers not enough flexibility. And having a spare raspberry lying around i was wondering if I could use that as a WeeWX server and read the stream from the Wemos. Any thoughts?Kind regards,Kees

    Thanks, I added the value (15) with the hight of my place of residence plus the height of the building. Read you library and clear to me now.Kees

    Hi, what a great project his is!!! And as a newbie tot IoT I dove into the documentations how ever I am running into some problems.Finally I got i working with Thingspeak but not with Blynk. Though still have some questions.1. Why is the altitude climbing up from -23 to ...., I live in a place 15 above sealevel. This should be a fixed parameter though?2. Any tips on how to connect the UV meter GY-1145 and have it read out properly?3. Any tips on how to connect the external temperature gauge? I want to put this in the sun.4. I liketo measure the air quality with the MQ-2 gas sensor. any idea how?Any information that would help me forward is helpful. Kind regards and lots of kudo's to the designer.K

    Very nice project, and after some playing around i got my first IoT project running. Still have the Blynk not fully operational and still juggling on how to get the GY-1145 and the external Temperature sensor DS18B20 working. If anybody is willing to share some knowledge I would be thankful.
