Using Docker on a Raspberry Pi as an IoT hub #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

This should roughly guide you (albeit on a meandering path), through the process of getting a Raspberry Pi (3) up and running with Docker, and using a simple Docker-contained toolset, create your own data & control hub for the so-called Internet of Things (IoT).

With the complex job or raising a newborn, and the fear put into us about keeping her temperature in some sort of Goldilocks zone, I thought I’d see if I could put an iBeacon a colleague leant me to good use, as it has a temperature sensor (among others).

So, we ordered a Raspberry Pi 3, since it has both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.1 Low Energy built in, and then I began setting it up. Then the first roadblock hit me… getting the latest version of Docker on an ARM-based machine.

While I’m looking at using the Bean, I’ve also looked at the Owl Intuition-C heating control and energy monitoring device, which I’ve previously integrated with some Ruby scripts, but I’ve been meaning to update.
