Yep building a power supply as you suggest should do the job.As these things are commercially available ; I suspect this is a project as part of a course - you will need to research this stuff and justify your decisions . This route will give you the maximum benefit .Final tip - dump the pp3 , that is not man enough for this project
My reaction to these pictures is: you have plenty of space on your breaboard. The Arduino has pins sticking out of the bottom of the board. Why do you think it has those pins sticking down?My second thought is: a university lab with table-cloths? That's posh!
What you mean by intelligent thermostat? The ones I have had installed in recent years follow the Federal mandate to attempt to maintain a constant in-house temperature. Saves energy. On top of that some state requirements include an outside temperature sensor to if the outside is warm enough, very little energy will be added to the inside temperature.Paul

Basically a thermostat like a nest that uses AI tools and an android application. It should learn behaviour of user and act accordingly. However we are just going to upload sample data and thermostat will behave accordingly.Will the resources in electronic circuits labs (voltmeter, multimeters, etc) act as as external transformers?Thanks
..... should learn behaviour of user and act accordingly.
Will the resources in electronic circuits labs (voltmeter, multimeters, etc) act as as external transformers?
I wonder if that means it should perhaps monitor the times and days of the week there are people in the room / building and then preempt their arrival and have the place all toasty for them?
I'm also wondering how s/he got on with using a voltmeter as a transformer.
I built a Heathkit thermostat way back which did that. They called it an 'anticipator'.
Was it billed as "AI" on the box? And what AI techniques did it use?
