LagartoMAX - panstamp - Documentation wiki and source code Lagarto-MAX is a lagarto process which receives, resends and processes events transmitted from any lagarto server running on the same IP network. Lagarto-MAX is a key piece into the lagarto architecture since it's able to integrate real values belonging to different networks and present them to the user in a homogeneous way. Moreover, being user-programmable, Lagarto-MAX can take decisions based on time or network events. Lagarto-MAX, due to its nature, is one of those components that will be continuously growing in functionalities.

Weather Station In this project we will use the Adafruit Starter Pack for Windows 10 IoT Core on Raspberry Pi 2 kit components to create a project that uses a barometric sensor to read the temperature, pressure and altitude. Hardware Connect the Raspberry Pi2 to the breadboard and the other components as per the Fritzing diagram in the "Schematics" section below. Software You can download the code starting project from and we will lead you through the addition of the code needed to talk to the web service and get your pin on the map. What map?

Yamaha Receiver (RX-Axxxx) Control Plugin @CMRancho,I reckon you can do it. I've listed the key data below, from that and the code of the Onkyo: you should be able to get up and running with basic On/Off functionality, and a bunch more if you want to venture further. Start with this post on RemoteCentral: you'll get most of the key commands that need to be sent. Unlock Android Phone with Wearable NFC Unlock your phone by just picking it up! No more pesky password or gesture PIN, just scan an NFC tag! This guide covers creating an NFC ring, putting an NFC tag in your nail polish, modding your Android installation to read tags from the lockscreen, and creating an automation toolchain to unlock the phone when the desired tag is scanned. The software side of this project can be pretty tricky, and even scary if you've never jailbroken a phone before, which is required to get the phone to read NFC from the lockscreen. However, you can still do a lot of fun projects without modding your Android install, just skip that step and head straight to the page about NFC+ Tasker Automation. You won't be able to log into your phone with your nail polish, but you could do all kinds of other things like start playing Barry White when you place your phone on the nightstand (just sayin').

Personal Mirror The Personal Mirror Motivation The idea to create a mirror with additional Information is not new and there are a lot of Projects with instructions in the web to create such an mirror. (e.g. here: IOT Ambient Light: VIPER Lamp Low power wireless standards combined with low cost, ultra-miniature LEDs, sensors and communications devices has made smart lighting a catalyst for the Internet of Things and home automation. In this tutorial we'll see how to control a NeoPixel LED strip via mobile using the VIPER App, that shows a color picker and a menu for the selection of various pre-configured animations. Step 1: Required Material The project requires few elements: VIPER IDE: a multi-platform and browser-based Python development environment with cloud sync and board management features. No matter which OS you use, VIPER runs!

HomeVision Home Automation Controller Imagine controlling your entire home with a hand-held remote while watching TV. View a complete system interface on your TV screen. Or from a web browser anywhere in your home (or in the world). Change the temperature of the AC system. Garage Commander What's new There are plenty of garage door openers in the web these days and each one is special in its own way. So what is special about this one? The following, I hope: NFC tags: scan an NFC tag to open your garage doorvoice: use Google Now voice commands to control your garage doorpush notifications: get the status of the garage door instantly as it changes (or request its status at any time) Measure Light with arduino and BH1750 module In this post I will expose how to measure luminosity with arduino and a BH1750 module Needed Hardware. Arduino Uno

WinIoT : Philips Hue Touchscreen Panel Application Philips Hue is a fabulous lighting system. It is a hub based system that discovers when new bulbs are added, allowing you to grow the collection of smart bulbs in your home organically. Hue also has apps available on some mobile platforms that make customizing and controlling your lights an easy and visual task. These are all fine and dandy, as long as you have a mobile device with you at all times.

Harmony Home Automation Server Harmony CBUS Interface Module C-Bus is a microprocessor-based control and management system for Buildings and Homes. It is used to control lighting and other electrical services such as pumps, Audio Visual Devices, Motors, etc. Harmony Dupline Interface Module Dupline is an advanced central control system. It can perform various intelligent control and network functions and at the same time operate as an interface to a PC via its Ethernet network connection. Harmony Rako Interface Module Rako modules use radio signals to communicate, eliminating the need for extra wiring. “Scenes” allow easy selection of preconfigured “mood lighting”.

Long Range UHF RFID Item Tracking System Maker spaces typically have hundreds of valuable tools available for use by their members. These tools can navigate from room to room and project to project. There is no real good way of knowing the whereabouts of a particular tool at a given time. Paper sign-out systems are often forgotten in the adrenaline rush of finishing an exciting project, and you can't always count on people putting things away properly (though they really should!). It is easy for items to become misplaced and lost, sometimes for weeks on-end! Uber Home Automation This last example will be different from all the other sensor projects so far. I’ve been kicking around this dog tracker idea for a while. Recently, there was an “Internet of Things Hack Day” competition held by the local Arduino group here in the Twin Cities (Minnesota, USA). I took this opportunity to form a team to work on this dog tracker idea. This is what my teammates (Wolf Loescher, Russ Terrell, and Patrick Delaney) and I managed to make on competition day. I’m presenting this idea mainly to highlight how flexible Arduino and DIY automation can be.
