SolarSens is a modular weather station.

It can be equipped with various sensors. Sensors, which also have to be illuminated by sunlight, can be installed waterproof on the "sensor phalanx" above the solar cell on the outside. This way brightness and UV exposure can also be measured.

Additional sensors can be installed inside the weather station (for example temperature and humidity sensors). In addition, an SDS011 can be "piggybacked" on the back of the housing.
The solar cell on the front supplies the electronics with energy and charges the built-in 18650 LiPo cell.

The measured data can be sent to your own SmartHome using WiFi.

I am currently working on a new circuit board, which should enable the data to be forwarded via LoRa and / or gsm.
