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!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
