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:
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
