Low cost low power room sensor with atmega328p and 433mhz transmission

Following my first build of an external garden sensor, here is a simplified version with temperature, humidity and battery voltage measurement for a baby bedroom

[EDIT] feedback about the expected battery duration here

The requirements are:
  • cheap
  • long battery life, the atmega328p run at 8mhz with minimal components and functions
  • under 8€
  • wireless (433Mhz) with good range (2 walls to cross and 10 meters)
Here is the final view attached to a lion for decoration:






And a report from OpenHab displaying the sensor data:




If you want more details about energy power consumption the first article on this subject is more detailled.

Now let's see how to build this.

Bill of material

The sensors is based on atmega328p(3€), 
  • a 433 Mhz transmitter (1,5€) ,
  • a DHT22 temperature and humidity sensor (4€),
  • a 433 mhz antenna (0,18€)
  • DIP socket adaptor for the ATmega (1€)
  • an electronic prototype printed circuit board (0,5€)
At total we are around 8€

Principle

Every hour the sensor send the data to a 433Mhz gateway so as to be stored in OpenHAB, the data sent are:
  • air temperature
  • air humidity
  • voltage of the power supply
The library used to send the data is RCSwitch.

The program to load to atmega328p on the sensor is here Low power sensor_inside

Steps to follow

The steps to follow are the same as the garden sensor, just remove the hygrometer sensor and you are done.

433toMQTTto433 - Bidirectional ESP8266 NodeMCU gateway between RF 433Mhz signal and MQTT

[EDIT] a new version compatible with Arduino and ESP8266 and adding infrared is available here

The goal  is to act as a gateway between 433Mhz sensors and a MQTT broker or between the MQTT broker and 433Mhz actuators, It enables to:
receive MQTT data from a topic and send RF 433Mhz signal corresponding to the received MQTT data publish MQTT data to a different topic related to received 433Mhz signal 
It can be an interesting part in an home automation system so as to interface sensors and actuators (wall sockets) with software like openhab.

List of compatible sensors here

The interest of putting this gateway to an ESP8266 and not on a raspberry pi is to be able to manage security actions at gateway level (power on a siren, cut power to certain devices) following RF data received by sensors without being dependent to the PI for security related actions.

You need:

Infrared IR, 433mhz and MQTT on ESP8266 bidirectional gateway 433nIRtoMQTTto433nIR

Following discussions on the home assistant forum people gave me the idea to add Infrared communication to the 433mhz gateway. 

The goal is to act as a gateway between 433Mhz sensors, infrared remote controls and a MQTT broker or between the MQTT broker and 433Mhz actuators, infrared devices, It enables to:
receive MQTT data from a topic and send RF 433Mhz signal corresponding to the received MQTT data publish MQTT data to a different topic related to received 433Mhz signal receive MQTT data from a topic and send infrared signal corresponding to the received MQTT data publish MQTT data to a different topic related to received infrared signal 
It can be an interesting part in an home automation system so as to interface sensors and actuators (wall sockets), your tv, home cinema, hifi ... with software like openhab or home assistant.
