The Sense of Things

The Sense of Things

Tiny devices can sense things like temp, light, and motion. Learn about home automation using Raspberry Pi or Beaglebone Black, XBee radios, Linux, and Python. Come talk about data, charting, interoperability, Node-Red, IoT, and your fun projects.

What inspired you to make this project?:
With the advent of accessible devices like the Arduino and Raspberry Pi the technologies have never been better to build our dreams. I dream of home automation systems that are secure, inexpensive, easy to design and which can help lower the use and subsequent cost of energy in our homes.

Imagine if every home in the land could have a home automation system that substantially saves energy. It must be inexpensive and easy to install. That would be a meaningful impact in the world.

All that... and it's fun, too.
