Door sensors for home automation are fairly expensive. Most of the solutions I have seen online are either USB powered (NodeMCU) or expensive (Z-Wave, etc). I have decided to create my own project to fix this problem.
I do not yet know how long the battery will last running the ESP12F, a reed switch and a temp sensor, but eventually I will be adding this to the description.
My goal with this is to learn a bit of Fusion360/engineering, electronics and, of course, have cheap sensors.
The components I will be using:
ESP12F (WiFi Arduino)
BME280 (Bosche Temperature/Barometric sensor)
18650 LiFePo4 Rechargeable Battery
This is my first real project that I am building from (nearly) scratch. It's very much a work in progress so currently things may not work. As I am learning Fusion360, I may redesign the whole thing yet again so that I can have the most optimal setup to rescale properly effortlessly.
I will most likely also push my arduino code to github once I get to that part.
