IoT-ing a mountain’s hut off-grid solar power system
This is the final wrap-up post for my Eclipse Open IoT Challenge 2.0 project. It will not be the last post about my Solar Monitor since I unfortunately was not able to completely finish my project till the end of the challenge. I’m still waiting for my PCB’s to arrive and also need to finish some software parts. But let’s start from the beginning …
So after my first steps I draw some conclusions on how to continue …
In this post I explore my first steps for my project:
- GPRS connection
- MQTT over GPRS
- Current and Voltage sensing
In short the idea is to add extra sensors and connectivity to the off-grid solar power system of a mountain hut to gain more insides into the generated and used energy.
