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
