Open Source Building Automation

Raspberry Pi + Webcam + Python + BASH + Dropbox = geek | NIGEKA I recently acquired a Raspberry Pi and have been playing with it for some time. It amazes me how powerful can something so small and cheap be. We could say that the Raspberry Pi is just a really small computer without case (or fans). There are countless projects counting on the power, price and size of the Raspberry Pi, but I wanted to implement an easy one just to see what kind of things could be done. My goal was to set the Raspberry Pi with a Logitech Quickcam Express camera plugged in, to upload a picture to my Dropbox folder, whenever anyone in the world visited a website hosted in the same Raspberry Pi. Yes, I know, it’s useless, but let me enjoy, ok? General architecture You’ll just need your Raspberry Pi, a computer with Dropbox where you can SSH, and a webcam. 1. In my case I’m using a Logitech Quickcam Express (yes, a Dinacam) and it just worked without having to install anything. fswebcam -r 356x292 -d /dev/video0 test.jpg This should output something like : 2. 3. ssh-keygen -t rsa

HoMIDoM, le système de domotique complet et gratuit pour la maison – logiciel domotique open source Home of FHEM Description FHEM (TM) is a GPL'd perl server for house automation. It is used to automate some common tasks in the household like switching lamps / shutters / heating / etc. and to log events like temperature / humidity / power consumption. The program runs as a server, you can control it via web or smartphone frontends, telnet or TCP/IP directly. In order to use FHEM you'll need a 24/7 server (NAS, RPi, PC, MacMini, etc) with a perl interpreter and some attached hardware like the CUL-, EnOcean-, Z-Wave-USB-Stick, etc. to access the actors and sensors. It is pronounced without the h, like in feminine. Features support for a lot of protocols used in house automation, audio/video devices, weather services, online calendars and more. Supported protocols (small excerpt) eQ3 spezifisch: HomeMatic, MAX! Frontend Screenshots Builtin web frontend: overview on the Desktop or on the Smartphones, SVG-plots. Documentation HOWTO.html for a short installation/configuration. Download Installation Unix / OSX

Mobile Raspberry Pi Computer: Build your own portable Pi-to-Go Aw, yes, the Raspberry Pi Computer, a credit card size mini PC that only cost $35. There are so many possibilities and uses for these small nano PCs. People have made them into PVRs (personal video recorders), retro gaming machines, weather stations, in-car PCs, jukeboxes, and so many more creative ideas. When I started this project four weeks ago, I just wanted to see if it was possible to make an ultra portable, mobile Raspberry Pi that you can take to-go. As I was building my Pi-to-Go I kept saying to myself, it would be cool if it had this, and then I would find a way to make it happen. My mobile Raspberry Pi Computer is now complete and because this is an open source project I wanted to show you everything, including how to build one yourself. Just a quick blurb about myself. LCD Screen The LCD I used is from an after market backup camera system that can be installed in a car. Battery Pack First off, be very careful when messing with lithium-ion batteries.
