This is the second of three videos on the Home Automation – Weather Clock Series. It builds upon the “Getting Started with the Home Automation Kit” videos but can be viewed as standalone.
The Weather Clock is a clock having weather instead of time on the clock face. It uses the AVR®-IoT WG Board and the Google Cloud Platform (GCP) to achieve this.
The focus of this series is on the cloud implementation, and how to get started it into your IoT applications. Please see the User Guide linked below for a thorough and written explanation of the design and implementation.
