This project is inspired by the Canari crowdfund project - we've designed this project to use Adafruit.IO for datalogging and a DIY 3D print.
Build an IOT CO2 sensing bird to alert you of the air quality levels! This bird alerts you when it detects high levels of CO2.
Much like the canaries that were kept in coal mines to detect gases, this build uses a CO2 sensor to detect if the air quality and Adafruit.IO / WipperSnapper will automatically move a servo up and down.
When the air quality is poor, the bird will drop, until you open your windows and bring it back to life:
- When the level of CO2 in a room is above 1000 ppm, a CO2-sensor activates a motor that will make this bird drop down.
- When the level of CO2 is below 1000 ppm, the bird will rise back up!
Reactive Servo Actions
IoT projects just got a whole lot easier! With Adafruit’s WipperSnapper, you can connect I2C sensors and do useful things with your data.
WipperSnapper is Adafruit’s No-Code solution for making IoT projects with support for dozens of WiFi enabled dev boards.
With Reactive Actions, make a feed turn something on, like a motor based on the CO2 levels among other environmental variables!
