When Your Want to Control Everything With A Raspberry Pi #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
If you want to control everything in your house with a Raspberry Pi. Internet of Things. All the things. via Raspberry Pi Pod
Matt Mahdavi took a Raspberry Pi A+ and installed the Kodi operating system onto it. He then also installed WebIOPi (an Internet of Things framework) to allow him to control a variety of household devices. These include lights, the TV itself and his central heating via a relay board. He’s also running Motion which monitors an attached webcam and Shairport for Airplay. He’s mounted the whole shebang onto an old floorboard. It’s pretty nifty and you can see the whole project in the video above (apologies for the poor sound quality!)
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
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.
