Building a Smart Thermostat Part 2

This is part 2 of the Smart Thermostat project. In part 2 we add the following features to our thermostat design:

  • Bluetooth control so the thermostat can be controlled remotely so you can control the temperature of your home from the comfort of your couch or bed
  • Mount the project so it is in a much more usable and aesthetically pleasing form then the prototype form it we saw in part 1
  • A power save mode to cut down on the utility costs 

In part three we will create the Android app and add a power supply to run it off of the 24 VAC signal coming from the HVAC system. To download the Arduino code follow the GitHub link below. Please share your comments!
