A Raspberry Pi project to search and find who is using an Internet connection
If like, me you live in a house which contains several other people and their numerous devices then you may well be used to others hogging the Internet connection. This project was designed to monitor who was on the Internet and which devices are connected.
The concept is simple,
Scan the Network for devices
Pull out the name of the devices
Compare with a list of stored devices
If they match then announce the device is connected
Light up a corresponding LED on the Blinkt
If a devices disconnects turn he LED off and provide and audio message
The project uses NMAP which is ‘Nmap (Network Mapper) is a security scanner used to discover hosts and services on a computer network, thus creating a “map” of the network.
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.
