Uber Home Automation w/ Arduino & Pi

[EDIT] I created a forum to collaborate on gateway code. http://homeautomation.proboards.com/board/2/openha... A few years ago, I became a dog owner for the first time. I didn't like leaving Cody in the kennel alone all day. I had a webcam on him, but I couldn't watch it all day long. What if he was in some kind of distress? What if there was a emergency at the house, like a fire? I wanted some way of getti ...

External device control (i.e. coffee machine)

Note: Try any or all of these at your own risk. I will not be responsible for any issues. Get a professional to help if you are unsure. The concept is that we take a controlling voltage from the computer or a micro-controller, which drives an electrically isolated circuit with Relay or Triac. You must choose a Relay circuit, if you have a big coffee-machine (greater than 200W or so), otherwise you can use a ...

The Raspberry Pi Powered Speaking Doorbell – Part 1: The Input Circuit

The first step of building the Raspberry Pi-powered speaking doorbell is building a simple input circuit. The purpose of the input circuit is to protect the Pi from damage by electrically isolating the doorbell and its power supply from the Raspberry Pi itself. The circuit design and a full description of how it works can be found here. The power supply I used is rated at 12V, but the LTV-847 optocoupler us ...

How to build your own Raspberry Pi home alarm system

Thanks to RaspberryPi.org for flagging the work of Gadget Nut, who is definitely a Gadet Master, too. They have been working on the PrivateEyePi project, building a DIY Home alarm system. It is modestly described as a simple system that can link to existing door contacts or alarm sensors, and there is also a Web server to feed your own remotely accessible personal dashboard, which is designed for mobile dev ...

Idiot’s Guide to a Raspberry Pi Garage Door Opener

It has become apparent that WebIOPi is not yet compatible with the Raspberry Pi v2.  If you are following this tutorial, you must be using the first-generation Pi.  The link below for the B+ model is still valid, and this model will still work for this project. I’ve updated the Amazon links to point to the new Raspberry Pi B+ revision.  Please note that if you’re going to use this version, you don’t necessa ...

Home Energy Centre using Raspberry Pi and Nook Simple Touch

Introduction Following on from using a Raspberry Pi to capture the electricity consumption of my home, I have over the last 2 years installed Solar Thermal Hot Water panels and very recently Solar PV.  This meant that I had an opportunity to create something I had been looking to do for a while – an in house portable “Home Energy Centre”. This post documents the thought process behind what I did, the choice ...
