4-Part Series: ‘Building a Siri/iOS HomeKit-Enabled Garage Door Control’ with #RaspberryPi | #piday

Atomic Object’s Jordan Nelson has a nifty 4-part series for designing a HomeKit-enabled garage door opener, including a full bill of materials, tips & highlights of things learned during the process of building the project, and lots of code walkthrough points. The four parts of the series are broken down as:

  1. Basic hardware acquisition and installation into a project box
  2. Software installation and code for controlling the door
  3. Software camera configuration and code streaming video to HomeKit
  4. Installing and configuring door open/closed sensors

The result looks pretty good – And you can see more source code here on GitHub.

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.
