Smart Home Automation with Linux and Raspberry Pi shows you how to automate your lights, curtains, music, and more, and control everything via a laptop or mobile phone. You'll learn how to use Linux, including Linux on Raspberry Pi, to control appliances and everything from kettles to curtains, including how to hack game consoles and even incorporate LEGO Mindstorms into your smart home schemes. Youll discover the practicalities on wiring a house in terms of both and power and networking, along with the selection and placement of servers. There are also explanations on handling communication to (and from) your computer with speech, SMS, email, and web. Finally, youll see how your automated appliances can collaborate to become a smart home. Smart Home Automation with Linux was already an excellent resource for home automation, and in this second edition, Steven Goodwin will show you how a house can be fully controlled by its occupants, all using open source software and even open source hardware like Raspberry Pi and Arduino. What youll learn Control appliances like kettles and curtains both locally and remotely. Find and harness data sources to provide context-aware living. Hack/change existing hardware/software to better fit your needs. Integrate various technologies into a function greater than the whole. Set up a home network, for both network and audio/video traffic. Learn how to incorporate Raspberry Pi, Arduino, and even LEGO Mindstorms into your smart home. Who this book is for This book is for amateur and professional Linux users and electronics enthusiasts who want to control their homes and their gadgets.

Make: Action is your gateway into the world of actuators and transducers: the counterparts to sensors. Just as sensors let you monitor the real world, these devices let you do things in, with, and to things in the physical world. You'll learn how to display things with LEDs and displays, move things around with motors and pumps, and create sound and vibration. Sensors let you know what's going on in the world; with Make: Action, your projects and creations will shape the world around them!...
Beginning Sensor Networks with Arduino and Raspberry Pi teaches you how to build sensor networks with Arduino, Raspberry Pi, and XBee radio modules, and even shows you how to turn your Raspberry Pi into a MySQL database server to store your sensor data! First you'll learn about the different types of sensors and sensor networks, including how to build a simple XBee network. Then you'll walk through building an Arduino-based temperature sensor and data collector, followed by building a Raspberry Pi-based sensor node. Next you'll learn different ways to store sensor data, including writing to an SD card, sending data to the cloud, and setting up a Raspberry Pi MySQL server to host your data. You even learn how to connect to and interact with a MySQL ...
