It's hard to believe it's been almost 3 months since the start of the Forget Me Not design challenge. As the challenge is drawing to a close, it's a good time to reflect on my performance and progress.   This is my first involvement in a design challenge for Element14. I had mixed feelings when I was chosen as one of the 5 bonus competitors: although there was happiness at having my idea validated, I was disappointed to be starting on the back foot, so to speak, when compared to the others ...

Forget Me Not - Summary

Posted by kipe Oct 24, 2014
Foreword I guess my approach to this challenge was a bit different from other competitors. I didn't set out to solve specific problems, instead I wanted to implement my current system the Way I Want To™. In the meanwhile, it's not a bad idea to add sensors like the ones provided in the EnOcean sensor kit. Even if I didn't achieve all that I wanted to, I sure did accomplish a lot. And best of all, with hours to spare compared to the deadline   Hardware From the get go, my plan was to ...

Forget Me Not - IQU

Posted by dougw Top Member Oct 24, 2014
IQU is an entry in the Forget-Me-Not design challenge aimed at demonstrating Enocean sensors and how easy they are to use. The project intro is here. I have found the Enocean sensors to be most impressive in wireless sensing, smaller than I expected and powered only by small power scavenging devices. There is a lot of software available to monitor these sensors, but this project demonstrates how easy it is to program your own applications to use these sensors. The sensors essentially send wir ...
Prelude Intro, Waiting platform, appliance monitor, weighing machine and Current Sensor IOT Current Sensor, MQTT Base station and The Raspberry Pi Rover System Architecture Prelude  My previous post was a textual summary of work done and I just could not shrink it more. In this post I continue by providing demo videos for the project. I try to explain the working and internals without actually tearing down the modules. For that most of my posts in the past have been short in ...
So, now that this challenge is close to its end, its time to look back at the project: what did I set out to achieve, what happened on the way and how did it work out in the end. Somehow I actually managed to write one blog entry per week (at least in average), thats better than my normal writing speed... First I need to thanks Element14 and all the sponsors for giving out such nice tools to work with, and for providing a project that gave me many up and downs, a great learning experience and a ...

Just a brief post with a video, I finally managed to code a basic UI for the current development phase. Sorry, don't have time or interest to cut the video right now, damn deadlines   Video shows the UI in action. Keeping with the idea of automatically searching the devices, I started with an empty database. Once the software is started (around 30 seconds or so, feel free to skip there), the 1-Wire bus is scanned for devices. After this, I push the rocker switch and it's added automatical ...
First of all I would like to thank all organizers of this design challenge for showing potential in my design application and all element14 community members for their warm support throughout this design challenge .   As now its time to summarize all the work I have done so far in this challenge, I start with my Application. My application is around answering these questions when we are away from home…using Raspberry-Pi with OpenHAB as Home automation server and Enocean remote sens ...
Most alarm systems these days use a keypad on the wall. Before you leave the house, you punch in your 4-digit code to arm the system. When you return, you enter the code again to disarm the system. This approach is limited in a number of ways.   The keypad needs to be wired into the system and placed by the entrance. If you have multiple entrances, you will often require multiple keypads (one at each exit). It's also difficult to track who is arming/disarming the system. Sure, you can issu ...
In this post I will be presenting a final wire up of the system I developed for Forget Me Not challenge. So now this is what I have at home. I have my raspberry pi hosting openHAB and running a couple of other scripts in my Living Room, beagle bone black at kitchen, Intel Galileo at bedroom and TI's Connected Launchpad for the outside devices.   Now the things are simple in openHAB. I have four pages in openHAB corresponding to each area. I have placed the enocean reed switches in the front ...

Three's a Crowd  The easiest way I could think of to monitor the cat bowl is to have a fixed camera overhead. If you're unsure you've fed your cat then whip out your phone and check to see if the cat bowl is full.   For this challenge I have already got two cameras working with a Raspberry Pi and OpenHAB. One camera is one the Raspberry Pi hosting OpenHAB and the other is a PTZ (Pan, Tilt and Zoom) Network Camera.   Now I've got a third for the cat bowl. I've now configured a ...
Thanks to Pekka Jäppinen for comments on the text.   BackgroundMy initial inspiration for getting into home automation was the fact that my dad started to build a house to “the middle of nowhere”. He currently works about 800 kilometers from the house with visits to the house being on average about every two weeks or so. As the occupation is so low, there’s no point in having the house at a constant +22 degrees Celsius. The energy bills would be massive, especially as ...

eLDERmon Final Summary

Posted by mcb1 Top Member Oct 22, 2014
This is my summary for the Forget Me Not challenge.     When this Challenge was first presented, I thought about what I could offer as a solution.         These are all very noble reasons to utilize the power of the Internet, and have machines report their status to a targeted or wider audience, but there had to be a more practical solution.   My application is based on Non Intrusive monitoring.         For this c ...
In my last post, I showed how we can connect individual room controllers to the main hub( raspberry pi ) using a home network and also how Paho MQTT library comes handy for the communication between them. Basically a room controller takes care of all the controlling functions of devices in a room. Each one runs linux and have a python script using Paho MQTT library for networking and GPIO libraries for controlling the devices. Now my system have the added advantage that openHAB doesn't have to d ...

In this post, I finally put my hands on the RpiSOC board to make some experiments with servos, in particular with easing functions. My purpose is to control servos speed and acceleration by sending high-level command (i.e. move to 120 degrees position) from the Raspberry PI board and let the RpiSOC generate the PWM to make the movement as smooth as possible. I like C/C++ language like no other programming language, so I'm not going to use the provided Python interfaces but I will use PSOC Creato ...
Main part of my project is to create a specialized Android client, to get exactly the information I need in a compact and easy to understand way. The official OpenHAB client has two drawbacks that make it not suitable for my needs: it runs only as full-screen application, but I would need a widget for the home screen the update speed is rather slow - changes to the sensors are not reflected right away. Thats why I set out to a journey in the OpenHAB REST API and the world of Android programmi ...

Can you Please Repeat from the Start? Figure 1. Proof that Raspberry Pi supports Repeated Start conditions (annotated with Green Left Brackets)   I2C is not as straightforward as some people think and there are a couple of wrong assumptions floating out in cyberspace. Unlike the asynchronous RS-232 protocol where there is always a start bit followed by some payload with optional parity bits and terminated with some stop bits, I2C support transactions that contain multiple Start conditio ...
Expect the Unexpected Figure 1. - A test picture taken by Rpi with OpenHAB when pressing a door bell.   I've been using Raspian Wheezy built on NOOBS 1.3.9 and today I ran a sudo apt-get update to synchronise it with some other Raspberry Pis and it broke things. In particular the Pi Camera utilities stopped working. This was resolved by running sudo apt-get upgrade. This downloads a whole heap of files and takes a while to apply the upgrade but now the Camera works again!   Phew ...

A Late weekly update

Posted by ipv1 Top Member Oct 3, 2014
This is a late weekly update and there are many reasons for it which include some urgent work on my PhD research as well a a cold a have. Anyways progress has been kinda up and down where some modules have been completely tested and other have been modified.   The EnOceans sensors are very easy to customize and I added another simple application around one so that adds to the total module count. I have also revamped the OpenHAB casing and it looks... different I will be posting pics very ...

Pas Home - Index    Hi small update for this week. This week a made some test with stepper motor and 2 proto to open my curtain but one proto is not very reliable and the other is very noisy and very slow. I'll make some improvements and get back with more details   I also quite progress with my proto to control my home ventilation system, i'm now able to read to current status ot the ventilation system. Now i will finalise the transitor circuit to start ventilation.   ...

ID-IOTic  This is just an text only update post to inform you of my current progress. The Raspberry Pi in combination with openhab is quite a powerful combination. Thus far I have managed to get openHAB up and working well. Amongst other things I've got it: Working with RPi GPIO Output Pins Responding to RPI GPIO Input Pins Sending emails on demand Capturing images using the Rpi Camera Controlling a remote PTZ Web Camera (Pan, Tilt and Zoom) Recording video footage Controlling and ...
Are you in a Bind?  The poor documentation can make things seem more complicated than they really are. Getting an Raspberry Pi output pin working on OpenHAB is actually much easier than you are led to believe.   Here's a quick example on how to get an LED and current limiting resistor connected to Pin 11 (GPIO17) up and going. All one needs to do is to; 1. Ensure that the GPIO is not exported and used by another process. 2. Connect the LED and resistor. 3. Copy the gpio binding ...
In this post, I will face a difficult challenge: detect whether a plant is flourishing or not. At this moment in time, this feature requires some more experiments and works to make a reliable solution, but I think the solution is promising NDVI Vegetation is green because plant leaves reflect green light -- they don't use much of it for photosynthesis (see Figure 1).   Instead they use lots of the blue and red wavelengths in sunlight. The pigments in leaves absorb this light to power phot ...
This is an update to my Forget Me Not Design Challenge project. It is delayed because of a week lost to a trip, two weekends lost to softball tournaments, half a dozen hockey games and the process of landing a new job. Also, I am still struggling to get the parts I need, but I have enough to show some progress. Enocean provides fairly straightforward software for monitoring their sensors and several of the contestants have provided excellent instructions on how to get such systems working with ...
I haven't seen this mentioned yet, so I thought I'd write a quick post.   openHAB configuration is controlled by a number of text files, which define the various rules, items, and sitemaps. The format is quite particular and editing directly on the RPi can be tedious.   Initially I was using the openHAB designer on my laptop to configure openHAB. It runs on Windows, Linux, and OSX, providing a GUI with which to modify the various files. By also running openHAB on my laptop, I could p ...
What a Tight Squeeze! Figure 1. A WiFi SqueezePlay under iPAD openHAB control   I seem to be working backwards. I built up a Raspberry Pi Model B+ with a NOOBs SD Card and installed OpenHAB 1.5.1 with root privileges using sudo. This seems to work considerably better than my first attempt where I was experiencing very slow performance and frequent lockups.   One of my goals was to get Squeezebox peripherals working and I have done just that. I have successfully got a SqueezePlay ...
