Building a smart home using IoT and RPi- Guide

Fri Aug 25, 2017 11:34 am

I know there are tons of DIY guide available here, but most of them wouldn't work in a complex environment. So, here I'm documenting a guide on home automation, RPi tutorials, and IoT.
P.S. Feel free to suggest.

First an extensive brief on how to choose the suitable engineering kit- including IoT sensors, protocols, gateways required to build a smart home. https://www.simform.com/home-automation ... of-things/

Guide on starting out with Raspberry Pi

1. Video lesson explaining the basics of the Raspberry Pi

2. PowerPoint slides demonstrating how to set up your Raspberry Pi and use it to solve Engineering Design Challenges

3. Raspberry Pi GPIO pin numbers

Challenges which might come while working with RPi
1. Controlling an LED with your Raspberry Pi GPIO pins

2. Design a harmless motion sensor mouse trap with a camera

3. Design a baby monitor that senses motion & sound, and plays soothing music

4. Design and program a smart house via external sensors

5. Multi-Room Media Center controlling video and audio

6. Design an automated land rover controlled by the Raspberry Pi

Bonus guide: For selecting the best home automation protocols for the internet of things

I will keep it updated with more guides and references. If you have any questions, feel free to reach me out.
