The BLough Alarm Clock is board designed for the Wemos D1 Mini ESP8266 development board that turns it into a fully functional WiFi alarm clock. It features the following:
Because I think a WiFi alarm clock is actually pretty useful, no need to set the time, it automatically does that for you. Also no figuring out how to set the thing, just use the built in web interface! It's very possible to recreate this clock using individual modules, but I thought a single PCB would be a lot neater.
It is an excellent, practical example of what you can do with an ESP8266. It is also extremely flexible to be extended e.g: Want to add Neopixels to your morning alarm, great, just program the Wemos D1 Mini like you would any other Arduino board to change how it works. Or maybe even re-purpose it completely by turning it into a YouTube Subscriber count that beeps when you reach certain milestones.
Code for a basic WiFi Alarm clock can be found on my Github, It's still a work in progress but it has the following features implemented:
Easy-Medium: There is SMD soldering here, but it's all 0806 sized components and are pretty spread out. This is actually a good board for getting started with SMD. My first ever bit of SMD soldering was the first rev of this board and it went fine. Ground can be a little tricky to solder too, due to the large ground plane.
