I have a great Rika pellet stove, but despite all the embedded electronics, it is unable to warn me just before the pellets tank is empty. As I already have my own low-power wireless devices and home automation tools, I just added a distance sensor and designed some enclosures.
What can you do on a rainy evening when you go to your hackerspace?
Take a NoteRF V2 PCB, a GPS, a battery, and you can make a LoRaWAN GPS tracker!
I finaly published them: sources of my wireless sensors are available here.
I wanted to try if a 100% DIY process to reflow a small batch of boards. For about 10 boards it is cheaper to hand solder them than ordering a stencil, but I was wondering if it can be faster to manually cut a stencil and reflow the boards on a frying pan.
