Have you ever went outside and noticed all your lawn lights were burnt out? This happened to me a little while ago. So I decided there had to be a better way and a perfect project for the Raspberry Pi. This Raspberry Pi project is a simple solution that will ensure you have complete control of your lights, even when you aren’t around. Try this simple but powerful internet of things project using the Raspberry pi.
The Rasberry pi will control all the turn on and off of lights and will continually monitor the system power to determine if a light is not working. On the event a light is not working or burnt out, a text message will be sent to the phone number of your choice telling you of the problem.
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.
