Note: At this point in the project I will try and explain as best as I can how I see these components working and how they should integrate with the main system. Unfortunately I do not have time to continue developing them along with the Challenge but if nobody is against it I will continue updating these post as I progress with development so I can come to a conclusion on all the parts.   Previous posts: Pi IoT - Simone - Introduction Pi IoT - Simone - #1 - Light Controller Pi IoT - Simone ...

Before note: I am not and electrical engineer nor do I have experience working in this field. Please double check anything I say in this post before trying it yourself.   Previous posts: Pi IoT - Simone - Introduction Pi IoT - Simone - #1 - Light Controller Pi IoT - Simone - #2 - Main System Pi IoT - Simone - #3 - Door / Window notifier   For this part of the project the main idea is to have a device that can calculate the power consumption on each wall outlet in particular. This can ...
This post will cover the doors and windows notifier   Previous posts: Pi IoT - Simone - Introduction Pi IoT - Simone - #1 - Light Controller Pi IoT - Simone - #2 - Main System   For this part of the project I initially wanted to use the EnOcean Hall Sensor since it seamed the easiest and most non intrusive way to do it but unfortunately the sensor is on a different frequency so it does not connect to the receiver. Instead I used the I2C connection protocol from the light controller for ...
This post should cover how the whole system comes together and how it is controlled.   Previous posts: Pi IoT - Simone - Introduction Pi IoT - Simone - #1 - Light Controller   The main system is based on a server application that works on a Raspberry PI. I chose the version 3 for this because it has more connectivity options and more processing power. Mostly there are not many things to process but as the system grows it might be an issue. This is how the system looks like:   ...
<Work in progress, the attachments can be changed when the controller is done>   The idea for this part is to have a way to control the lights in the house from your phone, PC, or through a web address. Also the system let's you receive information about the current state of the light. An important part is to leave the possibility to control the lights from the wall switches as before.   The whole controller for the switches should be as small as possible. To make it fit I had ...
The idea behind this solution is to use a Raspberry PI as a server that ensures the communication between different devices in the house and the user through smartphones, internal web server, motion and voice control. As a base the Raspberry is working through and C++ application that acts as a server and the devices are made based on Atmel microchips programmed to interpret the sensor data and the messages from the server. The communication is made through I2C and I am working at the moment on ...
