I want to use Arduino as described in this instructable:

http://www.instructables.com/id/Uber-Home-Automation-w-Arduino-Pi/

But i thought i would give it a little twist by adding a TFT monitor to some devices. I have bought and got the following tft shield to work: http://www.banggood.com/UNO-R3-ATmega328P-Board-2_4-Inch-TFT-LCD-Screen-Module-For-Arduino-p-945755.html

But now it strikes me: How can i combine the screen on an arduino where i also have a sensor and a radio transmitter?

You need another layer! A breadboard shield - from the same source if you like - would seem the obvious answer.
Alternatively, take flying leads from the pins you are using to the screen & mount it elswhere, then connect the sensors.
LCD's use quite a few pins, you'll probably need to be creative with an Uno. I have one on a Mega, & have been there with the same problem!

  • Link seems to be incorrect. I think you mean something like this. Also, I don't think there is enough room in between the two shield for an breadboard, and associated wires. Soldering would an a good option here. – Gerben May 5 '15 at 13:40
