If you are tied to your cell phone to monitor weather, calendar events and stocks, the Alert Tube could be the next gadget you need. Michael Watson built is around a Raspberry Pi, it monitors the net for events that you choose and alerts you by light patterns, text to speech or sounds. You can see the entire project build details here . “The Alert Tube is an open source information appliance that connects wirelessly to the Internet of Things in the cloud. The user interface is dead simple, it communicates data via customized colored light sequences, sounds and text to speech. The idea for the Alert Tube came from something simple, a clock.
Note utilisateur: Voici une présentation d'une installation complète dont les 3 objectifs principaux sont: - Réaliser des économies d ’ énergie grâce à un contrôle et une gestion intelligente du chauffage et de l’éclairage. - Automatiser certaines fonctions (Volets roulants, portail, porte de garage) pour augmenter le confort. (Tout en conservant une simplicité d’utilisation pour les occupants)
If you are like us you have a cat that roams the house and pushes the boundaries. When our current cat came home for the first time he was often seen sleeping in the middle of the table, chasing him off the tables for a week or so did the trick and now he knows that the tables are off limits. Very occasionally he still sneaks up on a table but jumps off as soon as he hears someone coming. If you would like to automate the training process this Electronic Cat Trainer Project from ijprojects is a great idea. A PICAXE controller was used to monitor an infrared range finder and chirp a piezo buzzer as soon as it detects something.
