About This Project
Well I have a cold laundry room and the thermostat on my heater has broken down so now I can choose between heat all the time and the electric bill that comes with that or to have it freezing cold in there or of course buying a new heater that I can’t afford because of all the electrical components that I’ve been purchasing lately… I thought why not make my own thermostat…
I have a Raspberry pi 3 model B, MCP3008 (analogue converter), TMP36 (thermometer), Relay, Breadboard, Jumper wires and a broken heater.
Triggers & Alerts
I used triggers to set at what temperature to turn on and off the heater.

Only waiting to be moved in to the final location and hooked up to the motion sensor light that I’ve made previously for the garage that is next to the laundry room. Just need to get some soldering on to hook it up some more permanent wiring so I can enjoy both light and heat.
