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.
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.
