Fox Tracker Project
Introduction My initial idea was to set up a tracker and provide the kit to the Red Urban Fox Project at the University of Prince Edward Island. The project had placed two GPS trackers that were lost. I was intrigue with sensors that needed no batteries. The two months have flown by and I learned so much about engineering and physics. Okay I spent considerable time reading about magnetic readings and using a reverse lookup for XYZ to find longitude and latitude. Maybe too much time . But time well spent to compare the advantage of XYZ readings over GPS. Raspberry Pi and FHEM set up I have used the Raspberry Pi in an audio and camera project so I had the power adapter, wireless dongle, case and SD cards already. I had a current image of the operating...

El módulo de comunicación y el kit de sensores de EnOcean permiten transformar la Raspberry Pi en una interfaz entre el Internet y el mundo físico. Por medio de sus sensores de bajo consumo eléctrico, se comunican con el módulo EnOcean Pi para centralizar los datos en la Raspberry Pi. Ésta a su vez pre-procesa los datos para depositarlos en alguna base de datos en la red, dando la capacidad de monitorear y controlar desde cualquier dispositivo conectado a Internet. El kit contiene: Módulo de comunicación, es una interfase entre los sensores y la Raspberry Pi. Se comunica por medio de radio frecuencia con los sensores y reporta a la Raspberry Pi a través del GPIO. Sensor de temperatura con opción de incorporar un sensor de humedad relativa. Sensor de contacto magnético (reed switch),...

My proposal for the EnOcean IoT pack was to monitor the cost of opening and closing a refrigerator door by analyzing the heat transfer while the door was opened. The proposed system is displayed in Figure 1. The magnetic contact switch monitors when the door is opened and for how long, while the temperature sensor monitors the ambient temperature. With these values it should be possible to do a heat transfer analysis and determine the cost associated with opening the door. Figure 1: The proposed monitoring system installed on a typical refrigerator. The EnOcean wireless temperature sensor and the EnOcean magnetic contact switch monitor the ambient temperature and the opening/closing of the refrigerator door respectively. A Raspberry Pi runs FHEM (data logging server)...

The EnOcean Pi kit I am reviewing was originally envisaged to monitor the temperature of my freezer to prevent the accidental defrosting of all my foodstuffs when my children got a lollipop out of said freezer and left the door open. Unfortunately the temperature sensor module only covers an extremely limited temperature range of 0-40 degrees centigrade which excluded that from the test. I decided to use it as a generic room temperature sensor instead. Considerations: * Transmitter range * Position * Sensor range Hardware: Raspberry Pi Model B Internet connection Enocean Pi board STM 320 energy harvesting magnet contact transmitter module Software: Raspbian OS for the Raspberry Pi FHEM Home of FHEM
