It seems that when it comes to installing accessories such as electrically powered roller shutters or lights built into a house, the tendency is to avoid pulling cables but to stick on the walls switches which are actually battery-powered radio controls. We are not very convinced of the ecological balance sheet of such a shortcut, but it opens up interesting prospects in terms of DIY.
Recently at Yoctopuce, we started to build, for internal use, many small boxes that some wouldn't hesitate to call "Smart Extension Cords", but which are in fact a simple application of the Yoctopuce technology: Wifi controlled extension cords. We thought that you might be interested in knowing how we build them.
We already discussed home-made weather stations in our blog, but none before had this "pagoda" design or used this messaging protocol. That's why we are writing a new post. The aim of this "low cost" weather station is to build it with materials as basic as possible
Electric consumption has been at the heart of the news in recent years. Being great fans of graphs and measurements, we propose a small system allowing you to follow in real time the electric consumption of a workbench. As I am new here at Yoctopuce, I was appointed guinea pig to do it my own way, while discovering Yoctopuce modules at the same time.
When you jump with a mountain bike and you want to improve, it's convenient to film yourself so as notice your own errors. If there are several people, it's easy to give your smart phone to a friend and ask him to film you. But when you are alone, you must trigger the camera, climb back on your bike, jump, and then stop the camera. It's tedious, and you then have long minutes on video that you need to cut. This week, we are going to automate all this with our DIY project.
