[Project] Raspberry Home Monitoring

Hello ! In this post, I will present my little project of home monitoring with a Raspberry. For the moment (29.08.14), I just present my project and I will update this post each time I have a new idea, functionality or problem 🙂 . I hope that some people will follow this project, make it and help all guys which want to build their own RSM (Raspberry Home Monitoring).

Actually, I just know which Raspberry I will use and which OS I will install on it:

  • Raspberry Type B
  • Linux Raspbian

The type B is the second release of Raspberry PI. Actually, there is a new version available, the type B+ which offer more USB port and some new features. The B type have theses principal characteristics:

  • 512 MB of RAM
  • 2 USB ports 2.0
  • 1 Ethernet port 100 Mb/s

For the OS, I choose Raspbian because it is the most used with Raspberry and the I use Debian as my “every-day OS”.

The project’s idea

The main idea of this project is to use the RaspberryPI as a central manager which collect and store various information measured by remote sensors. To start simply, we can imagine to use these sensors type:

  • Temperatur
  • Humidity
  • Pressure

For the moment, that it ! This post will be updated soon ! I hope that I motivated you to contribute and following this project !
