Hello, this year I've been working on a smart clock which I am proud to show you today.
I've created a small video to present it that can be found here :

The main features are :

- automatic time setting (through home WiFi)
- auto brightness according to the luminosity of the room
- alarm time set according to google agenda schedule and journey time forecasted (by google maps).
- time remaining before the alarm can be seen with the color of the RGB led

The clock is connected by WiFi to my VPS (Virtual Private Server) which gives it time,date and the time of the next alarm. With my phone or my computer I can set manually an alarm or change the time.

For this project I used an Arduino Pro Mini, an ESP8266 for WiFi connection, the ADPS-9960 as a luminosity sensor and proximity sensor (touchless snoozing).

Here is the design I had in mind first (3d picture done with Blender)

Comments and critics are welcomed :-)


And after some cleaning the source code (arduino side) is available here :
