Intelligent Chicken Coop: Technology

Thinking about what I need to accomplish the chicken coop project! Ahhit is hard to know how to start…

Things I need:

  1. Door open and close with servo motor
  2. leds for communication indication on coop – receive, send, alert
  3. read switch – sense when door closed
  4. temperature – onewire sensors x2
  5. power – 5v. future battery and solar panel for trickle charge
    • power to servo
    • power to arduino and sensors
  6. Bluetooth dongle CSR low energy
  7. Bluetooth adafruit breakout chip
  8. Arduino Uno

Other things:

  1. Enclosure for arduino and bits
  2. Door (not strictly a technology, but quite essential)
    1. doorframe, door, hinge
