This spring before launching swimming pool I decided to build an automated sun water heater which should heat the water during the sunny days.Continue reading “Sun Heater for Swimming Pool”
In my previous post I created new version of IR transmitter for air conditioner but didn’t explain the process of reverse engineering chinese IR remote for air conditioner.
Couple of days ago I decided to create new one IR controller for my air-conditioner and make it more professional, smaller and reliable.
I used schematics from my previous project but simplified it by removing DH22 temperature sensor and decided to improve schematics by using my base circuit with additional pull-up and pull-down resistors and capacitors for ESP chip stability.
Just completed soldering stable version of weather station based on ESP8266, it measures temperature and humidity using DHT22 sensor and also luminosity.
Current post describes implementation of OwnTracks geo data and then draw they on Google Maps.
Below you can see my main circuit which I use in my projects. Based on my experience I’d suggest that this is most of the stablest version.

Recently I built the second revision of my pulse counter to measure power consumption in my house.
The version is using plastic box and installed to DIN rail, it also has interface to re-programm ESP chip and reset button.
Some time ago I decided to buy a 4K camcorder to capture some amazing videos across the world and then enjoining the same picture on my TV sitting at home. The idea was to have a window into places which I love.
After some playing with different types of the switches which controlled lights through my Home Automation System I figured out best implementation of smart switch and in this post I will show you what I made.
In this post I want to share my knowledge about device which now controls my air conditioner and allows me remotely through my home automation system control temperature.
