Smart phones. Smart cars. Smart homes. We built an internet-connected home automation device based on Raspberry Pi and Arduino. The home automation device can currently control the garage, main gates, lighting and security. It also shows the temperature in the house.
We wanted this smart home to be usable by the whole family; so we built multiple user-password accesses and responsive design available over the Internet on the home network.
The website then connects to the controllers and sends commands, such as to turn on the light, open the garage or turn on the security.
