Again and again, it happens that you install Programs, but do not start them automatically when booting. In order to use the Raspberry Pi autostart, all you need to do is to store the information in the /etc/rc.local file in the Linux system. This is, for example, the case with DNS service noip2. In the […]
In order for the Pi to be as flexible as possible, a Wifi connection is very advantageous. Of course, you need a Wifi Stick and have to configure everything, which is shown in this tutorial. The only thing needed is a one-time connection to the router with an Ethernet cable.
In this Tutorial, I’ll show you how to easily put an Operating System like Raspbian OS (Wheezy, Jessie, Stretch) or any other related Raspberry Pi OS on the SD Card.
For weather stations and similar projects, it is often important to determine the air pressure. How to determine the temperature and humidity with sensors has already been shown in previous tutorials. With the help of the barometer BMP180 the air pressure (in hPa / bar) can be determined via the I²C bus of the Raspberry […]
With the Raspberry Pi and some sensors, it is easy to measure the temperature without much effort. In addition, however, the humidity in certain situations or projects (such as a weather station) can be enlightening. Sensors such as the DHT11 and DHT22 are not only available for a few euros, but they can also measure […]
The Raspberry Pi is ideal for monitoring, so local live streams can be set up (via Android, too). Also, a Raspberry Pi Youtube Live Streaming is possible, e.g., for somebody who wants to watch his plants grow or wants to share other projects live. In addition, it is possible to make the stream publicly or […]
MQTT is a protocol that specifically sends data from devices of the Internet of Things and is supported by most microcontrollers and systems. To use Raspberry Pi MQTT communication, not much is needed, which is why this type of transmission is very interesting. In addition, it is really easy to use. In this tutorial, we […]
In addition to creating graphical interfaces via web servers such as Node.JS or Python and TKinter, we also have the option to run GUIs that were created by Visul Studio on the Raspberry Pi. These are created via Windows and then made executable on the Raspberry Pi. Not much is needed! In this tutorial we […]
If you are looking for RGB LED strips, you will probably come across the WS2812 or the WS2801. These two LED strips are very different, but both can be controlled with the Raspberry Pi. After using the latter in a previous tutorial and using it in our Ambilight, this tutorial is about using the Raspberry […]
One of the many applications of a Raspberry Pi is measuring the temperature. In projects like weather stations you want to know the exact value. Using a 1-Wire Raspberry Pi temperature sensor makes it very easy to read it out and you will only need one GPIO pin. In this tutorial it is described how […]
After we are able to record individual images with (USB) cameras / webcams, we also want to view live pictures. This can either take place on the smartphone or on a PC fom outside of the home network. For this purpose, we configure the Livestream of the Raspberry Pi security camera. The great thing is […]
