There are lots of devices on the market that allow you to monitor your home from a central interface. In this article, we are going to make our own DIY version of such devices. To do so, we will use the latest Raspberry Pi board, the B+ model, and the official Raspberry Pi camera module. We will also perform some measurements from a temperature and humidity sensor.
At the end of the article, you will be able to build an interface to access the camera and the sensor recordings from a single page. We will also see how to acess this interface from anywhere in the world. Let’s dive in!
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.
