1-Wire Temperature Sensors on Raspberry

1-Wire Temperature Sensors on Raspberry | Home Automation | Scoop.it

This project was inspired when some pipes froze in the crawlspace over the winter when we were not around. The idea is to pick up some 1-wire temperature sensors and drive them with a raspberry pi (RPi), log the readings, make a webpage tracking them, and maybe trigger an incandescent light in the crawlspace if the moving average of the temperature gets below a threshold to heat it up a little bit, safely.

Vincent Demay's insight:

Nice beggining to cennect 1 wire to raspberry

Raspberry Pi vs BeagleBone Black: which one is the best for home automation ?

Raspberry Pi vs BeagleBone Black: which one is the best for home automation ? | Home Automation | Scoop.it
The Raspberry Pi is a wonderful platform that can be used to build your own home automation system. I recently used it to control a relay from anywhere in the world, and I also compared it to the Arduino platform in a previous article.

Raspberry Pi GPIO home automation

Raspberry Pi GPIO home automation | Home Automation | Scoop.it

"I had heard about GPIO pins on the raspberry pi and decided to do something with it. And with the holidays coming, wouldn't it be great to be able to turn on and off your light display from the web!  This is a pretty simple project that creates a web app for controlling lights.  It uses the Raspberry Pi for the internet connection and a wireless remote control to turn on and off the lights. The tricky thing is to connect the Raspberry Pi GPIOs to emulate pressing the buttons on the remote control."

Neato Robotics

Neato Robotics | Home Automation | Scoop.it

Neato never misses a spot. Before it makes a move, it surveys and maps everything in a room, including furniture, objects and doorways. Once a room has been mapped, the Neato robot goes to work, cleaning in a pattern of straight, overlapping lines. As it moves, the sensor continues to scan, enabling the robot to avoid obstacles such as furniture, walls, stairs or pets.
