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.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
