It is based on the development of an Arduino wine cellar monitoring system. It provides for the measurement of the following elements
Entry/Exit by RFID identification.
Electronic assembly includes an Arduino system associated with the elements below :
Sigfox communication module.
RFID key reading module.
Two indoor and outdoor temperature and humidity sensors.
A motion sensor.
A light sensor.
An LCD screen.
LEDs to indicate the state of the module.
The module picks up the data and transmits it to an antenna on the Sigfox network to the maCave.io server. They are then accessible through a unique and personalized https address. You can thus access the status of your cellar at any time from an internet access.
You can configure your alerts:
Intrusion not identified by an RFID key.
Temperature or humidity variation outside the defined parameters.
Light left on.
Participate in the project!
You can purchase a module to monitor your cellar. The elements are still being manufactured in prototype mode. The price is 150 euros to participate in the purchase of the components only.
Check the coverage of the Sigfox system (a priori no problem throughout Europe) :
You must be a member to get a monitoring module.
A temperature and humidity sensor and a light sensor have been added to the outdoor module. The NRF24 radio system has been replaced by a wired link to make the exchange of information more reliable.
The dashboard has been adapted to integrate outdoor temperature and humidity graphs. It is possible to adjust the brightness level of the LEDs of both the internal and external modules, the light level for switching on the internal module and the warning parameters for temperature and humidity monitoring.
The prototype is in progress ...
The RJ45 module is replaced by a Sigfox antenna to facilitate installation and autonomy. The RFID key registration module is separated to place it outside the cellar to identify members before detection.
The Dashboard is modified to include a graph showing the temperatures and humidities inside and outside the cellar. It integrates a graph on attendance and alerts.
During the test phase ...
First functional prototype based on a network interface to communicate with the remote server with the realization of a specific PCB.
An interactive calendar is added to the Dashboard.
This is the development of the concept and the interface with a remote server. This first module allowed to discover the possibilities of the arduino.
