Many people always claimed how smart and intelligent they’re in electronics niche. If you’re one of those that have the talent, then would you dare try to create this S.M.A.R.T. HVAC monitor?
As it already mentioned earlier, HVAC monitor is a project that involved making an S.M.A.R.T. (Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology) Thermostat. It has the ability to access over the internet without any further modification!
Well, this project had already combined with several elements of embedded electronics, and it keeps on the theme of Home Automation.
By using the S.M.A.R.T. HVAC monitor, you’ll have the chance to control and monitoring the HVAC system via the web. Furthermore, it could be easily interface with most commercial and residential systems.
The project is based on a PIC18F452, where is capable of using the standard 2-wire hardware I2C. To be honest, you’ve to figure out the way overcome the small downside here, as these pins were not made available on the extension header, as the PIC-WEB uses I2C on-board to communicate with an EEPROM.
In overall, this S.M.A.R.T. HVAC monitor is a marvelous tool, and everyone should build one for himself/herself!
