" The key selling point of ANAVI Thermometer is that it is designed to be easy to use since it does not require any soldering, nor breadboard and accompanying jumper cables mess"

Easy Temperature Sensing for Home Automation

ANAVI Thermometer is an open source hardware, Wi-Fi development board for measuring temperature that’s powered by an ESP8266 processor. It comes with a built-in DHT22/AM2302 temperature and humidity sensor and has slots for a mini OLED display, waterproof DS18B20 temperature sensor, and empty slots for up to three additional I2C sensor modules. All these features make ANAVI Thermometer appropriate for developers, makers, students and open source enthusiasts interested in home automation.

Quick Setup

Getting started with ANAVI Thermometer is easy. No soldering is required. To turn on ANAVI Thermometer, just plug a standard USB charger into its microUSB connector. We will provide a comprehensive user’s manual with exact steps for using all the features of ANAVI Thermometer.

Certified Open Source

ANAVI Thermometer is an entirely open source project that combines open source hardware with free and open source software. It has been certified by the Open Source Hardware Association under UID BG000017.

Measure air, humidity and water temperatures with ANAVI Thermometer

The free and open source software tools KiCAD and OpenSCAD were used to design ANAVI Thermometer and its acrylic enclosure. Source code and schematics are available at GitHub. All units will be manufactured in Plovdiv, Bulgaria.

Fun For All Skill Levels

ANAVI Thermometer is fun and easy to use. You don’t need to be a tech whiz to use it. You can assemble it without any tools, and only a screwdriver is needed if you are adding a waterproof temperature sensor. Whether you’re a newbie to temperature sensing or a skilled engineer, ANAVI Thermometer is a great choice for most projects.

ANAVI Thermometer can also serve as a convenient development board for home automation that’s suitable for anyone interested in Internet of Things, coding, and open source.

ANAVI Thermometer is useful for:

  • Monitoring indoor ambient temperature and humidity for home automation
  • Monitoring temperature in liquids, for example a fish tank
  • Logging data in open source software platforms like Home Assistant, OpenHAB, Domoticz, etc.
  • Rapid Internet of Things prototyping and software development
  • Learning embedded software development by saving you the hassle of breadboards and jumper cables

Features & Specifications

  • CPU: Tensilica L106 32-bit processor (ESP8266)
  • Connectivity: WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
  • Build-in sensor: temperature and humidity (AM2302/DHT22)
  • Peripherals: Mini OLED display, terminal block DS18B20 waterproof temperature sensor, UART pins, button, three slots for I2C sensors
  • Compatibility: Arduino IDE, PlatformIO, Home Assistant, MQTT, and any modern web browser
  • Certification: Open Source Hardware Association (OSHWA) BG000017
  • Dimensions: 75 mm x 40 mm

Sensors

Out of the box, ANAVI Thermometer supports the following modules:

  • 0.96” OLED I2C display
  • DS18B20 waterproof temperature sensor
  • BH1750 I2Csensor for light
  • BMP180 I2Csensor for temperature and barometric pressure
  • APDS-9960 I2C sensor for RGB color and gesture detection

You can also attach any other I2C sensors, but you will have to take care of their software integration.

Comparisons

There are literally hundreds of project and development boards for logging temperature on the market. ANAVI Thermometer is not like them!

Unlike the rest, ANAVI Thermometer is entirely open source, supports a huge variety of temperature sensors, and doesn’t require a breadboard or soldering iron to get started.

Manufacturing Plan

To ensure consistently high quality, ANAVI Thermometer has a green solder mask and a gold surface finish. All printed circuit boards (PCBs) for ANAVI Thermometer will be manufactured and assembled at a local factory in Plovdiv, Bulgaria, EU. The fabrication process includes a procedure called panelization which groups together a number of PCBs on a larger board called a “panel”. After that, components will be mounted on each board.

All boards will be carefully manually flashed with open source software (already available at GitHub), tested, packaged, and shipped according to the schedule for each pledge.

Shipping & Fulfillment

This crowdfunding campaign offers ANAVI Thermometer with free worldwide shipping via the registered airmail service of the Bulgarian Post. All orders will be shipped from Plovdiv, Bulgaria. Your pledge will be packaged in an individual cardboard box and padded envelope for extra safety during transport. A tracking number will be provided as soon as the order has been shipped.

Risks & Challenges

ANAVI Thermometer is a certified open source hardware product. We have already manufactured a small-run batch to ensure that everything works correctly. Although this significantly reduces any risks, mass production still depends on factories and suppliers. Availability of parts can also be an issue. In order to provide ANAVI Thermometer at the best price, we are working with reliable suppliers and a trusted local factory in Plovdiv, Bulgaria.

We have experience successfully delivering projects on time, and even ahead of schedule, from our previous crowdfunding campaign for Infrared pHAT, Light pHAT, Light Controller, etc. We are confident that we can again arrange successful mass production on time. However, if any delays occur, backers will be notified promptly through regular updates.

Support & Documentation

ANAVI Thermometer is an entirely open source project, the source code and the schematics are available at our GitHub repositories. Please have a look at the following links:

If you have a question about ordering, paying, or shipping, please refer to The Crowd Supply Guide.

If you have a technical question about the operation of ANAVI Thermometer or any of its applications, please visit our website or contact us at info@anavi.technology.

Stretch Goals

Our crowdfunding campaign has a very modest goal of just $10, but if we raise:

  • $1,000, we’ll add awesome stickers for all contributors
  • $2,500, we’ll publish free video tutorials
