The Remote Home Monitor will encourage you to upgrade your home to a smarter and more secure one, offering safety measures, protection, monitoring and key indicators for later improvement using the Nova Cellular USB Modem and a Raspberry Pi.
This project is not about just turning ON/OFF a light from a smart phone. It is focused on integrating a network of sensors, nicely presenting the data in a dashboard, monitoring and controlling all the features with a simple and friendly user interface, accessible from a web browser or a touch screen console at home.
An array of sensors are connected to the Raspberry Pi, data is collected and stored in the cloud using the NOVA, the most recent data is re-routed to a Webhook that will help presenting the data nicely on a web page. Also, the system is capable of sending email alerts on critical events, like basement flooding risk.

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.
