Sparkly Air Sensor – Open Electronics

By on August 28, 2022


I wished to please a pal, an environmentally acutely aware pal who is worried about mould spores within the air (from damp), moreover he’s an occasional smoker and lives on a reasonably common metropolis highway, so he’s eager to see what’s current within the air so far as focus and air high quality go.

To this finish I’ve obtained:

  • an extra Raspberry Pi Zero WH (zero with wifi and headers – I imagine the one model allowed for a number of purchases),
  • repurposed an outdated LCD display (JHD162A),
  • a particle sensor that I had completed experimenting with (Nova Health Sds011),
  • and certainly one of my temperature and humidity sensors (Si7021) that’s not match for my functions (wont settle for 100% relative humidity / condensation).

It’s all packaged “comparatively” neatly in a stunning glitter coated cardboard field (low-cost and simple to chop/modify).
