Building blocks for a sensor network

Hi again – no doubt it was some time since my last post here. Has the project been on hold? No, not at all. A couple of weeks ago – I took the step and ordered some things for a sensor net...

Lets get dirty!

And so the saga begins. My first Arduino Nano with some sensors just arrivedthe goal is to somehow mqttify these prototypes and use them with openHAB. I will post my progress – good as bad 🙂...

Shiny LED!

And so it’s completed! The RGBW controller is hooked up to the LED list and added as a device to our Z-Wave network. The integration with openHAB worked like a charm and now we are not only able...

The tools makes the man!

Let’s admit it – every man is somewhat of a techie nerd – and so am I 🙂 So – what now? A Fluke has entered the building! And what for? Well, the first mission to accomplish ...

PiFace as a scene controller

Now is the first ”quick and dirty” solution based on the PiFace CAD in test phase. Together with the MQTT bus, openHAB and peripherals hooked up using Z-Wave or 433MHz solution, we now hav...

Building blocks assembled

And today became the day when the parts were assembled to a small nice unit. This image shows the box for PiFace Control and Display when it’s mounted on top of the RPi. Gives a plastic feeling ...
