Raspberry Pi Internet Monitor @Raspberry_Pi #piday #raspberrypi

FLXLTNOI8YBHMYR MEDIUM

Great project tutorial from talk2bruce on instructables!

In my house, you can often hear someone shouting “Is the Internet down?” Sometimes it is but most of the time it’s a “user problem”. I decided to build a gizmo that would make it easy to tell whether the internet connection was working or not. Hence the Raspberry Pi Internet Monitor.

The Raspberry Pi Internet Monitor is used to provide visual status of a WiFi internet connection. A Raspberry Pi periodically issues Linux ping commands to a set of web sites and based on the results will illuminate different color lamps in an industrial tower lamp mounted on a laser cut case. If the pings are successful more than 50% percent of the time, the green lamp is illuminated (first photo). If the pings are successful 1 to 50% of the time, the amber lamp is illuminated (second photo). If the pings are unsuccessful, the red lamp is illuminated (third photo).
