Introduction (De)activation Detection Alarming and notification Simulation Testing   Introduction  I recently submitted an idea for the Ultimate Raspberry Pi Bundle Roadtest. Unfortunately, I wasn't selected, but I will still execute my project and describe it here. The project I plan to work on takes the Santa Catcher from previous Roadtest a few steps further. I would like to create a home security and automation system capable of the following:  ...
When I got my Pi NoIR camera, I didn't have any IR LEDs to play with, so instead I used my TV's remote control for testing (Road Test review). This was enough to demonstrate the functionality of the Pi NoIR, but it wasn't a permanent solution.   In the mean time, I managed to get my hands on a couple of IR LEDs.   The voltage drop across the IR LEDs I got is approx. 1,5V for a current rating of 60mA, meaning that with a 5V power supply I could put a resistor and 3 LEDs in series. T ...

So I decided to create an Internet Radio player which could be controlled using the PiFace CAD's buttons. The result is mainly a softwa ...
