The TinkerForge Weather Station Kit is a fully-fledged open source weather station. It measures temperature, humidity, air pressure and illuminance with high precision. It can be controlled by a connected PC or standalone with an embedded board like the Raspberry Pi (not included). The kit does not require soldering and can be assembled in roughly a half-hour.

The station can be configured in multiple ways. The measurements can be displayed on the 20x4 character LCD, they can be shown on a website, or uploaded to Xively. The four buttons on the included LCD 20x4 Bricklet can be configured to control different modes and a demo application (available for Windows, Linux, and OS X) can be used to test the station.

Both the software and hardware of the kit can be modified. The enclosure is lasercut from tinker-friendly Acrylic plastic, which can be easily modified. Mounting holes for Analog In and IO-4 Bricklets are provided, which opens the possibility to add more sensors (anemometer, pluviometer, etc). Programming of the weather station can be done with all of the available bindings (C/C++, C#, Delphi, Java, PHP, Python, Ruby, Visual Basic .NET). Example implementations for all supported programming languages are available on GitHub.
