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