This entry level Kit as quick and simple to-it-together activity for soldering education and just for fun. I designed it to assemble it together with my 6-years old son. End result is internet-synchronized digital clock, that helps my son to learn clocks and helps me sleep better, by hearing less of "Is it morning already, dad?" at 6 am.
I love my clock ;) I have one just above my desk. Another one in kids bedroom. And another one at my mother's house. One thing that bothered me - absence of a case. I could make a 3D-printed case, but frankly always lacking time to do a good design. I can do some design in an evening, but to make a good design takes much more.
I decided to take a shortcut and order a acrylic case for now. It quite cheap (when ordered in quantities) and it actually looks surprisingly good. Bonus: Now I can keep the clock on the top of my display.
Make sure that all parts came in good shape and no apparent damage is done on the way.
Solder two 5-pin male headers to the screen
Disconnect 2 edge led matrix modules from the screen. Be careful not to bend the pins, otherwise it would be a lot of dancing to put them back later on. Don't worry about orientation, they have markings on one side
Solder Wemos D1 module - headers to module first
Solder headers to the Wemos D1 module. Long part of the header should be directed to the motherboard. Make sure to align them right, use motherboard as an aligning tool.
Start with just one pin each side and double check your work. Then you can proceed to other pins
HI Andriy Thanks for the clock module I really love it. I have a question. I connected the clock to my wifi, have changed the time zone and rebuild/uploaded and it is displaying the correct localtime. I now need to move the clock to a new location with a different router. Rebuild/upload leaves the clock looking for the old ssid.I dont seem to be able to connect to the wifi config screen. How do I change the ssid? Thanks Regards Robert
