Alarm Notifications with Raspberry Pi and Arduino #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
Scott takes on a Raspberry Pi + Arduino “buddy board” (or as we call them here on #piday: “pi-pals”) version of the Li0r’s Alarmino project at SWB Labs.
This is a perfect example of where the Raspberry Pi can work cooperatively with a micro-controller like the Arduino. If the Arduino could do the monitoring and report state changes to the Raspberry Pi over its serial connection, the Pi could handle the more sophisticated signal interpretation and notifications.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
