RPI as controller

Mon Jun 06, 2016 6:45 pm

I am sure that I can add a microcontroller if I need more pins but i want to take my PI and have an http webserver set up that ties into my current HA AVD system. I have a large number of devices saved as filed in pronto ir format however their may be others as well as a bunch of rs232 codes (null modem). What is the fastest way of getting all this data and building my IR and RS232 device library in the Rpi? Hoping that all the IR doesn't have to recorded and labeled again.

Start researching 'lirc'

I think there is a pronto->lirc converter somewhere.

OK, i would use apache as the web server. it will be controlled by another device - sort of the like the Global Cache products. Please see link http://www.globalcache.com.
The problem with the GC product line is baud rate is limited where i would like it do to 115k or whatever the highest one is. Some DB9 connects are by USB, some are by the null modem 3 pin connection. Can you please help me be figure out the best way to accomplish this? Not only would i like to up the baud rate, i would like 2 way feedback.
