Monitor for Barks and Calm down Your Dog by Playing Sounds on a Raspberry Pi @Raspberry_Pi #PiDay #RaspberryPi

via Foxbot Industries

Keep an eye on your beloved bbies and play music or tell ’em to be quiet while you are away! This tutorial will show how to use a Raspberry Pi computer to monitor the volume of sound in your home (via the Cloud) to see if and when your pet is upset.

Drum roll… the most fun part: If it gets too loud (like Fido is barking or making some other raucous), we’ll you can tell them to be quiet or play music!

Along with the Pi (and speakers), we’ll use the SparkFun MEMS microphone breakout board to measure volume levels and trigger the audio player. Data is uploaded to the CloudMQTT service using the MQTT communication protocol.

To build this project, you’ll need a fully configured, WiFi-connected Raspberry Pi 3 computer with ​Raspbian OS. It’s also helpful to know some ​Python programming as well as the following things: (1) how to use and control the Raspberry Pi GPIO pins; (2) MQTT communication; and (3) analog sensors.
