Weather Lamp

Weather Lamp is a RGB lamp made using Wiznet Pico WizFi360 and WS2812B LED’s. The lamp simulates the real-time weather using the openweathermap.org API. It read parameters like cloud intensity, temperature, time and try to mimic the cloud colors, sun/moon and change the base color as temperature range.

Supplies

1 x WizFi360-EVB-Pico

1 x WS2812B LED Strip

3D Printer

White Filament

Solder Kit

Connecting Wire

Step 1: Designing & 3D Printing

Designing & 3D Printing
  • I have designed the model in Fusion360.
  • Download the STL Files and 3D print them.

Step 2: Circuit Connection

Circuit Connection
  • Connect the WizFi 360 and WS2812B LEDs as shown in circuit diagram.

Step 3: Assembly

Assembly
  • Assemble all the parts together using quick glue.

Step 4: Getting Openweathermap API Key

Getting Openweathermap API Key
  • Go to openweathermap.org and create your account and verify it.
  • Now login to your account and click on you profile or right-top corner and go to My API Keys.
  • Copy the API Key that you see this will be used later in Step 6.

Step 5: Arduino Libraries Setup

Arduino Libraries Setup
  • First go to Files->Preferences and copy paste the following URL in Additional Boards Manager URLs:
https://github.com/earlephilhower/arduino-pico/releases/download/global/package_rp2040_index.json
  • Go to Tools->Boards->Boards Manager and search for Raspberry Pi Pico/RP2040 and dinstall it.
  • Now got to Sketch->Include Library->Manage Libraries and Search for ArduinoJson, Adafruit_NeoPixel and install them.

Step 6: Code Changes

Code Changes
  • At Line.No 20 you have to edit your Wifi Name(SSID) and Password.
/* Wi-Fi info */
char ssid[] = "SSID";       // your network SSID (name)
char pass[] = "PASWORD";   // your network password
  • At line 153 I have added 5 to hour and 30(Indian time zone IST 5:30) to Minutes and applied a maths to convert the APIs GMT time into ISt time zone.
  • You may have to change the number(5 and 30) according to your tiem zone.
      h = (h + 5) % 24;
      Serial.println(h);
      minute = (m + 30) % 60;
  • At line 282 you have to enter your locations Longitude, Latitude and You accounts openweathermap API key.
    // send the HTTP PUT request
    client1.println(F("GET /data/2.5/weather?lat=17.6795&lon=77.6051&appid=43f22249d3d42ec***********ca809b HTTP/1.1"));
