The 4-Digit "Wemos" Nixie Clock kit is a fully Internet enabled clock based on the Wemod D1 R2 mini. The Wemos clock connects to your WiFi and always keeps the time correct. Setting the clock is alse done with a browser using a computer, phone or tablet. Once you have set it up you can forget the clock. It will keep itself right forever.
This kit is a simple to build (with excellent and clear instructions) and has the option to use either IN-12 or IN-2 tubes, both of which are low cost tubes.
In the case that WiFi is not available, the clock falls back to the internal RTC (Real Time Clock) time provider, so that the clock always shows the right time.
The controller comes pre-programmed, and you can update the code using "Over The Air" (OTA) updates. You don't need any special programming equipment!
Note that this clock is currently not open source.
A cute 3-D printable case is also available!
The wall power supply is not included. You will need to get an external power supply (7.5VDC - 12VDC). Suitable mains wall power adapters are available on Ebay for around $3!
Tools, solder and some connecting wire is not included.
Full kit of parts WITH tubes: You get all of the electronic components on the PCB, as well as the tubes and LEDs. You need to specify either IN-12 or IN-2 tubes. as parts for mounting on the front panel of your case. You get a RTC (Real Time Clock) module so that the clock can remember the time and date even when turned off.
