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.

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.
