Home heating using Panstamp (Arduino + TI C1101) and SSR

Reading time: 3 – 5 minutes

Last weekend I worked on setting up home heaters using Panstamp. Panstamp is an Arduino board with Texas Instruments radio. Next winter we’re going to control our home heater using connected internet devices like the laptop, tablet o mobile phones. In this post I only want to share some pictures about the process to install the electronics inside the heaters changing the old electronic boards with new custom ones.

The parts:

  • AC/DC transformer, outputs 5V. It’s really cheap, in this case free because I have more than 20 of them from old projects.


  • A small custom PCB designed and made by Daniel Berenguer, the owner of Panstamp. Thanks again Daniel. I bought the PCBs and parts for around 10€ each one.


  • TMP36 temperature sensor. It costs about 1,5€ each one.


  • Solid state relay (SSR) bought in Alied Express web site for less than 5€.


The process:

I used a lot of tools, because DIY aren’t my strong hability.


Double-head tape and hot-blue gun are need…


because I want to use a cork base under the PSU and PCB

Next weeks, I’ll come back with this subject to talk about the software part.

  1. Very nice! Looking forward to seeing your code for the panstamps.

  2. That’s almost exactly the project I am starting to study. I look forward for details of your project.

  3. Maybe I did not search well on your site, but I did not find your posts on the software part. I still have a lot to learn to catch up, but knowing that you succeeded assembling a complete solution would be a great motivation. 🙂

  4. Hi Ludovic, last winter we enjoyed the heating system and we’re happy with the results. You are right the code is not online yet. Now I’m out of home for some days but next weekend I’m going to look for some time to write the pending post.
