Raspberry pi 3 Projects for Engineering Students
here are plenty of "Arduino Home Automation" examples on the net, but they didn't fit my needs - the parts are expensive, or they don't give you a good interface, or you have to write a lot of your own code for the interface. They might be tethered to ethernet, or have poor wireless range, or can't be battery powered. The goal of this project is to provide all the information others would need to integrate wireless Arduino nodes into a full-featured home automation system, with polished Android/iPhone apps as well as browser-based user interface. In addition, the automation gateway can historize and chart sensor data, react to sensor values (send emails, do android push or iphone prowl notification, etc...), as well as control existing commercial products you may already own (Sonos speakers, WEMO, Insteon, z-wave devices). I've made the design as flexible as I know how. This project is an enabler, by extensibly connecting two great open source platforms: Arduino & OpenHAB.
