I am attempting to get my challenge back on track after a few hiccups. My car is now fixed but insurance has yet to replace my laptop so my progress will still be slow. I'm also yet to receive the EnOcean Pi and sensor kit, so can't make any headway on that front.   This means my tasks have to shuffle around a bit, and I will work on some aspects of my project that were "time-permitting" rather than "mission-critical".   I currently have OpenHAB running on my RaspberryPi B+ but it wa ...
OK, so I spend the last two days communicating with the OpenHAB REST API in much more depth than I wanted to. But at last I can report success. For now I'm able to have a test client listening to ther rocker switch button, without dropping any events or losing the connection. Next step is extending this test client into a small library being able to handle all sensor types and the sitemap / home page. Using the Apache HttpCore library means that my code can run on Android too since its part of ...
Everybody is tweeting!! I like that. It keeps me updated about whats happening around. Unlike big brother FB, i don't have to worry whether to Like or Share or Comment for a post or just do nothing. If I want to spread the word, just retweet. Simple, elegant! But what happens when all these devices started tweeting. Ohh...they are gonna flood the place. I noticed first the trend around some four years( or before that? ) when people started interfacing a moisture sensor to an arduino with wifi sh ...

Software developers absolutely love documentation. But unfortunately for me they hate writing it (and I know this, working fulltime as one of them...). Last time I said that my goal for the past week was to write a small prototype for communicating with the REST API of OpenHAB, to prove that it works. Now the week is over, and apart from having learned too many things I have nothing that really works. Bummer So OpenHAB has a REST API, and its documented in the wiki. It tells you how to access ...

I have designed an PCB holder for the EnOcean Sensors. This PCB would help to mount the sensors on the doors, windows and other desired locations. Thanks to EnOcean for the Additional PTM200C module, Rockers cases , STM320C enclosure and the connectors. Actually I missed to order the 1.27mm pitch connectors, so EnOcean sent me a couple of spare 1.27mm connectors. They also sent me a small enclosure for the STM320C this helped me to design this PCB and fit the first sensor on my door. Thank ...

IP Post 8: The System Design

Posted by ipv1 Top Member Aug 23, 2014
At this point pretty much everyone has explained what they intend to do. I was waiting for parts to be delivered so that I can be sure that I have the resources to actually build my project. I started by building small parts of each module which I had proposed and made sure it was doable. Next I ordered parts and my design went through some changes. Lastly I made a final call on the design and I am going to stick to it. So here is the final design. At this point I understand that its a bit much ...
The Forget Me Not Design Challenge is focused on the IoT using the new Raspberry Pi B+. Contestants are using the SBC in their projects with a centralized theme on home-automation. Raspberry Pi B+ releases, it was only a matter of time before it would be used for IoT (Internet of Things). Now, it seems 20 people are already using it for home automation! As we all know, the IoT is on the rise with more devices and appliances being connected every year. The same can be said for open-sourced h ...

Introduction I am waiting for my stuff to get delivered which are basically parts and parts. One of features of my design is that the raspberry pi center piece is portable, ie it can be moved from one location of the house to the other. For this I needed to add a battery backup which was shown in my previous posts. In my recent experiments, I found that the Raspberry Pi was rebooting unexpectedly. It turns out that one of the connectors was defective. Still this left me with the question that i ...

So the good news is I received my Raspberry Pi B+ today, along with the EnOcean EOP350. I haven't received the EnOcean Pi or sensor kit yet.   The bad news is my car was burgled 2 days ago and among the things taken was my personal laptop. This is going to hurt my challenge quite badly, as I have lost not only some design material but it's going to take some time to get up and running again.   I can probably get some things done after hours on my PC at work, but it's not ideal... ...

This is quick post on how to interface enocean Pi to your laptop and use it with openHAB running from your laptop. In this post, I'm using Ubuntu 14.04 as my OS with openHAB 1.5 installed.   As my raspberry pi will be arriving a little late, I set out to find out whether it's possible to interface enocean pi to my laptop. Searching on google I found that Enocean Pi module uses only four pins from raspberry pi - VCC 3.3V, TXD, RXD, and GND. It immediately came to me that with an USB to TTL s ...

Introduction   In my last post, I discussed how to get OpenHAB up and running. For the "Forget me not" Design Challenge, one of the sponsors is EnOcean and they were gracious enough to supply us with a basic kit and EnOcean Pi. This is a brief write up of what "I think" is happening. If someone knows something I don't, please feel free to comment and I will be more than happy to make corrections.   EnOcean Pack   The EnOcean Sensors are Energy harvesting modules. This means that ...

Forget Me Not - IQU

Posted by dougw Top Member Aug 9, 2014
IQU - Introduction & Objectives The Forget Me Not Design Challenge provides an awesome kit to learn about EnOcean in conjunction with the new Raspberry Pi. Other sponsors include Tektronix, who is supplying a TBS1000B-EDU oscilloscope to 15 contestants and Element 14 who is supplying a Cadsoft license and a $500 voucher for parts. I don't need to explain to this community just how phenomenal this kit is, but I am certainly very impressed with the generosity of the sponsors and I feel exce ...

"Shipments are a little delayed" -- this is a mail I got a few days ago from e14. Okay...but waiting until my rPi arrives to start working on the project is not a good idea. So I decided to test openHAB with my laptop itself. My laptop is running Ubuntu14.04 64bit on an i5 2.4GHz with 4GB RAM. So the performance of openHAB in my laptop cannot be compared to raspberry pi by any standards. But installing and working with openHAB in more powerful system is always good -- it gives a good understandi ...
I received my Raspberry Pi B+, EnOcean Pi and sensor kit on Wednesday. The Raspi and EnOcean Pi were easy to setup, as I expected, just do a normal install and disable the default serial console on Raspi and you’re ready to go. Other people have covered this topic already, so there’s no need for me to go over it. Unlike most of the contestants, I didn’t install any specific software to the Pi at first, just opened a serial console with ‘screen’ and pressed the le ...
So first of all. Not a heavy picture/video based blog this week. I did video capture some of my work, but most of that went out of the window as I had to re image the pi a couple of time after bashing my head against the wall a few times.   So... This week I received the EnOcean Pi, Sensors and the Raspberry Pi Model B+. As the MicroSD cards I have to hand are either too slow or are in use I've been using my old Raspberry Pi Model B until I set myself a decent MicroSD for the Pi.   I ...

Pas Home - Index  Hi here is a little video of my first prototype to open and close my curtains. A drill, a pencil and fishing line. The guy in the tackle shop find its pretty funny when I told him why I wanted durable good line. With 40 LB I should burn the motor before it breaks.   Why pencil and drill?, watch the video, poor pencil he had a hard time.   ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ...
Next step in the ForgetMeNot project is to make the EnOcean PI board work. As I said, my purpose is to write a C++ application, so I need the be able to cross-compile the source code to control the EnOcean Pi board and embed it into my application. Fortunately, EnOcean provides a valid library to use as a starting point   So, these are the steps for this round I downloaded the EnOcean link library from http://www.element14.com/community/servlet/JiveServlet/download/55295-6-118009/EnOcean ...

Seems like even though the documentation already exists, everyone is writing one of these. So I thought I would add mine as well, but with my little twist. The first thing you need to do when you get your raspberry pi, is get a case? Well you can 3D print one. Here is a good example for the B+ Raspberry Pi B+ Face Case by adafruit - Thingiverse Additionally you need to buy a micro SD card. I got an 8GB one and I have my primary RPi which a download server and WebIOPi server with a 16GB one.  ...
If you've followed my earlier post, you'll have a Pi with up-to-date packages, and you'll know how to log in.   The next step is to get openHAB up and running.   Java Check If you are running Raspbian, java is already pre-installed.   Check this by running java -version   Copying files to the Pi Probably the easiest way to transfer files to/from the Pi is to use SFTP - this is enabled by default on Raspbian. I use the free Filezilla client (WinSCP is another popular free ...
I received EnOcean Pi and the Sensors kit yesterday.  My first activity was to find out what pins the EnOcean Pi was using up. With a multimeter, I set out to do just that. My investigation ended at the obvious that the EnOcean Pi is connected to 4 pins Vcc (3.3V GND Uart_TX Uart_RX   The reset and anything else does not seem to be connected.This means I can solder on wires and leave the connector for my PiFace CAD. Before I heat my soldering Iron I need to verify if things are wo ...

"Remember me always" I bought a Raspberry Pi (RPi) when it was first released and I've only turned it on once or twice. This "Forget Me Not" design challenge is a great opportunity to put it to good use.   "Now where did I put it?" (Looking around) "There it is." (Grab the box) The box is a bit light isn't it? (Open box and gasp!) "Empty! Now what did I do with it." (Looking around some more) "There it is! It's in a Zen state in the Qi area"   It's time for it to transcend and ...

Hello all, This is my first post in 'Forgot Me Not' challenge. I'm one of the FMN challenge finalists, not the Top 15, but one in the Lucky 5 gang. So I'll be receiving the basic kit -- Raspberry Pi B+, enocean sensor kit and an enocean Pi . And this is going to be first rPi. I'm going to deviate from my original project proposal due to some budget constrains. I'll have to cut down my shopping list and include some into my lending list. The idea will still remain the same, but I'll be dropping a ...

Getting started with Linux and the Raspberry Pi can be daunting. Hopefully this post helps alleviate the pain for those just starting out.   Before you start, I'm assuming you already have a Raspberry Pi (RPi) and an SD card (microSD for the model B+). Life will be a bit easier if you have a monitor and keyboard that you can use with the RPi, although it's not essential.   Download an OS image Firstly you want to choose a Linux image. I normally use the Raspbian distribution. You can ...
When we start working on a project, we start by isolating a problem and then designing a solution for it. For the Internet of things, this means having a device connected to the internet and sending the desired info online. My project being part of the Forget me not challenge meant that I was going to do that. However I have paused to thing about somthings as well as blog about it.   In my design, I have a lot of sub systems connected to the OpenHAB system. I was planning to connect variou ...
First I would like to thank Element 14 and the sponsors of this design challenge for choosing my application as one of the entrants.
