WiFi Kettle #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
FatCookies via raspberry pi pod:
After being inspired by the rather novel iKettle (
http://www.firebox.com/product/6068/iKettle), I decided I could create my own WiFi enable kettle as a little project!
The kettle needs to be filled and the physical switch pressed down before being placed onto the base, the rest is all remote!
The software has not been written but currently it is possible to SSH (remotely connect) into the Pi and run a trusty Python script to enable the power to the kettle.
To wrap up:
Raspberry Pi – £30 (I personally already had one)
Relay Board – £2
Kettle – £5
Box – £3
Header pin cables – £1.50
Switching on the kettle for a warm brew with your arse still glued to the sofa – Priceless
