4.1 SMART HOUSE #1 - Connected Birdhouse (Arduino Yun project)
The birdhouse is a traditional object, a wooden birdhouse to be placed outdoor, and connected it to a lamp shaped like a nest, to be placed indoor: The connected birdhouse is an interactive object able to communicate to the nest/lamp the presence of a bird inside the house, and accordingly to a color coded signal was giving also some informations about the size of the bird itself. In the event of a bird entering into the house, the nest/lamp remotely controlled via WiFi by an Arduino Yún, was turned on.

The birdhouse is set up with a simple wooden bird house, and a few B-Square modules including a battery module, an Arduino module, a couple solar modules, and a few other basic parts. When a bird enters the house, you get a tweet. How appropriate.
We've been monitoring a blue tit nest here at Ynys-Hir with the computer. The latest data is shown below. The orange bars show the number of visits per 1.3 hours, the red line shows temperature and the green line shows wind speed. I'm hoping to post more graphs later.
This project looks promising. We need to contact Dr. Robinson for plans and code

Arduino YUN $66.21 + VAT
Arduino YÚN is a member of a new groundbreaking line of WiFi products combining the power of Linux with the ease of use of Arduino.
The open-source Arduino environment makes it easy to write code and upload it to the i/o board. It runs on Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. The environment is written in Java and based on Processing, avr-gcc, and other open source soft ware.
This page contains the download links to the latest Arduino integrated develop ment environment (IDE) software, release notes, and additional software not included with the IDE such as system images for the Yún.
