Simone Marra from openPicus shows us how to build a ambient weather reminder system into your umbrella stand so you never leave the house on a rainy day without the proper protection.

The system uses data pulled in from World Weather Online API, a WiFi module, motion sensor,Grove Nest board, and some LEDS that will come alive to alert you to the forecast.
