WeatherPiArduino is a weather station controller board designed to interface to Arduino and Raspberry Pi computers. It is an interface board developed by SwitchDoc Labs to allow the user to easily build a fully functioned Weather Station while allowing customization of functions.
WeatherPiArduino is derived from Project Curacao. Generation 1 of this board was deployed and tested in Curacao before Generation 2 was released to production. The full WeatherPiArduino article was published in Raspberry Pi Geek magazine in September, 2014 and a follow up article will be published in April, 2015 (including the new lightning detector). The WeatherPiArduino comes with a SwitchDoc Labs DS3231/EEPROM board.
Combine the WeatherPiArduino with a SunAir or SunAirPlus board to create a solar powered weather station.
