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.
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.
