So we managed to finish our IoT-device, the weather lamp. Because we didn’t have a shade for the lamp we wrapped it up in toilet paper and put it in a plastic bag. Very professional.
Nonetheless the device works. It checks the temperature in Helsinki and changes its color depending on the results. We tested it with other cities too and it worked well.
Here are the components we used:
1x Arduino Uno R3
1x Keyes RGB LED
4x jumper cables
1x 180Ω resistor

I made the lamp with Tomi Laakkonen
