Re: Button functions not performing their task

I wish I could, although I'm not entirely sure how to. This is the only way I know to achieve what i want it to do. If you can provide me an example I can learn from I'd gladly take a look at it. :)

Everyone, hello! I'm in need of someone that will have a look at what I've done, because I can't seem to figure it out, so I come to you all for help! That said, I currently have 2 buttons hooked up to my Raspberry Pi (these are the ones with ring LED's in them) and I'm trying to perform this code #...

PiZ mini USB port suspected broken

Hello everyone! I'm not entirely sure how it happened, but I suspect my PiZero (one of them) mini USB port to be broken. To be fair, it apparently still accepts power, but will not accept an USB devices connect to it, be it a WiFi dongle, a keyboard or anything. It doesn't even show up in the lsusb....

Re: Home automation Question

I don't think this is going to be possible. At least, I've never heard of something like this. You can get RF chips, but they will still need to process the information they get, this is what a RPi is for. Alternatively, you could get a RPI0, considering they are so cheap and small you can have it f...

Re: Opslaan beelden Externe IP camera

Dit hangt er een beetje van af hoe het beeldmateriaal geserveerd is?

Je kunt proberen om bijvoorbeeld met de command 'wget xxx' en dit elke uur te onderbreken (lees opslaan) en te herhalen zodat de bestanden niet te groot zijn?

Re: Connect webcam to RPI and see image on iphone

How are you going to power a device that far away? Is this going to be a static setup or not? I'm going to assume that it is a static setup, and that you need a little bit more of a robust build: That said, if I were you, I would buy a 200meter Ethernet cable (or twice 100m?) It doesn't look -too- e...

Re: Which model Raspberry Pi for home automation

I suppose it really depends on what this RPi's function is and what you're hoping to achieve. If your end goal is to save on power and money, perhaps the Pi Zero can provide a good solution? I've slowly started transitioning to these myself as they are ridiculously small and cheap, combined with a s...

Re: RPi1+RPi2 2 servers same external IP

I suppose you could let the website RPi fetch the info from the USB RPi and "echo" it to you, that way you don't have to expose your USB RPi to the interwebs. :D

Re: pi to pi data

I would recommend mosquitto (also sometims refered to as MQTT). It works quite well with python to send information (encrypted or not) from one pi to another instantly. You can find a lot on it through google. Good luck!

Re: LED RPi

Thanks for the reply and suggestion.

While I can find something on the matter, I don't think i'll be able to find a supplier of it to fit the tiny LEDs on the RPi, and even if I would, I don't see anyway I can mount them to the RPi. Perhaps lightpipe isnt the way to go.
