Chicken Coop Livestream @Raspberry_Pi #PiDay #RaspberryPi

For anyone working on sustainability, permaculture, or just has a lot of chickens, this project might come in handy. Made by Frederick Vandenbosch – via hackster.io

We have two chickens, and their coop is located at the back of the garden. I decided to build a Pi-based streaming device to check on them.

Because the coop is located at the back of the garden, I opted for a regular Pi Zero with external WiFi dongle, ensuring decent connectivity to my home network.

A Pi NoIR combined with Bright Pi’s IR LEDs takes care of the night vision in the coop. By glueing Bright Pi to the case’s lid and connecting to the Pi’s GPIO from the back, a neat little package is obtained.

I’m also experimenting with a 10W solar panel I had at hand from an older kickstarter. The idea would be to have everything powered from a USB battery pack, while recharging it during the day.

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.
