Pi for Pets: Cage Camera Stream, Food Dispenser, and More! | #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

Over at Hacker Noon, Michel Parreno has a series of pet-related Pi posts, for remote viewing (awwwww bunny!) and controlling a dry food dispenser. Michel’s builds all essentially work together and he does a great job laying down some primer tips & tricks for developing with Pi – so if you’re interested in building a Pi project for your pet but have never made anything that ambitious, this is a really good place to start.

This article is part of a serie about how to spy and feed your pet with Raspberry Pi, don’t miss the first steps !

In the previous articles, we have learned how to build a camera server and a food dispenser. Now is the time to add the final touch to our connected cage. Buttons at the front of course ! One to turn off the camera when we’re at home, another to trigger manually the food dispenser.
