Building a Model Smart Home with Raspberry Pi @Raspberry_Pi #piday #raspberrypi

Awesome project tutorial from PubNub.

We’ve done it with Arduino, and now we did it again with Raspberry Pi. That’s right, introducing the Raspberry Pi-Powered Future House!

Running on a Raspberry Pi Model B+, the house boasts seven embedded LEDs, a couple of sensors to measure humidity, barometric pressure, and temperature, and a stepper motor that remotely opens and closes the door.

The house is figuratively glued together using PubNub, allowing us to publish messages into the house to request on-demand readings from the sensors. Additionally, PubNub powers the remote configuration for the smart home, enabling users to trigger the LEDs and control the front door. We can also request the current state of the house, including voltage and intensity levels.

But the most valuable part of the Raspberry Pi-Controlled smart home is its showcase of the missing link in a lot of IoT applications and projects; powering an easy way to stream data in and out of an embedded device.

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.
