Hackster.io member “t ps” has created an Internet of Things Raspberry Pi rain checking system complete with a light sensor to provide a way of triggering other devices or code using the Amazon AWS servers. The project has been classed as an intermediate skill level and is currently a work in progress.
To build your very own you will need a Raspberry Pi 3 Model Be together with a DHT11 Temperature & Humidity Sensor (4 pins) and of course a raindrop sensing board which can be purchased for less than $5. For full instructions on how to build your very own jump over to the Hackster.io website.
