Does that include a Breakout Board? I saw it is on the new Weather Shield.

One suggestion: Omit the ambient Light Sensor. I think that most people buying this board would just the most common data (Wind, Temperature, Humidity, Pressure). I mean honestly, 12:00AM: dark; 1:00AM: dark; 5:00AM a little lighter; 8:00 AM: very bright. If you really wanted to measure it, you could either attach the breakout board separately or just use a photo resistor. Maybe there could be an “expansion port.”
Just a suggestion
Thanks so much! I can’t wait to get started on this project!
Thanks for your help!
1. So could I just plug in the Humidity/Temperature Sensor and Barometric Pressure/Temperature Breakouts directly into the I2C on the Arduino?
2. I noticed that the Barometric Pressure Sensor runs at 3.3v, but what about the Humidity Sensor?
3. I noticed that there is a portion on the schematic that is dedicated to the Weather Meters (Wind and Rain). Would I have to change any of it to use it with an Arduino? (would there be voltage problems?)
4. Lastly, I am going to use a Raspberry Pi as the data logger/web server (I may end up using a faster computer for the server). Should I just use USB/Serial (Serial over USB; built into the Arduino Board) or would I2C be faster? I would have the Arduino as the master and then send the processed information to the Raspberry Pi. Would the SDA/SCL lines be slower because of the sensors on the “network?” It seems (from what I saw in the code) that the Arduino would be constantly sending data to the Raspberry Pi, not only if there is a change (I could alter this, of course). So, USB/Serial or I2C? Now that I think of it, what about SPI?
I am really interested in this product!
No public wish lists :(
