What is the Raspberry Pi?

The Raspberry Pi is a miniature computer that is ideal for handicrafts or home automation. Thanks to its controllable IO (input-output) pins, sensors and other hardware can be read out and controlled very easily. Because of this and its low price, it is also a very popular way to get started with (hardware-related) programming for beginners, children and those interested.

In the meantime, the Raspberry Pi has been sold millions of times and there is a ready-made solution for almost every application, or a way to achieve your dream project. This page deals with all topics related to the Raspberry Pi. This includes simple tutorials on the use of sensors, pure help on programming topics, to complex Raspberry Pi tutorial series in the field of home automation, robotics and many more. You can simply browse in the menu and on the page or leave a comment. Since new Raspberry Pi instructions and tutorials appear regularly, it is definitely worth activating the newsletter.

As already announced at some point, there will be additional tutorials on how to use an Arduino on the side of the Raspberry Pi. The Arduino is a small microcontroller, which is very cheap to have but allows many additional features to the Pi. In combination, the two offer even…

Frequently, a lot of data is generated in projects that run around the clock. One way to store them permanently is to store the data in a local database. However, there are also some reasons that speak against it. In order to keep the measured data (for example, from a…

The Raspberry Pi can be connected to the Internet very quickly and easily via the local network. But what if you also need a mobile Internet connection outside your own WLAN? There are GSM modules / Surfsticks (mostly from Huawei), which can be connected via USB. Sometimes are such GSM…

In addition to a surveillance camera and motion sensors, information about open windows and doors is also of interest to a self-built surveillance system. A check with infrared light barriers or other methods would certainly be possible, but in this case, that is much more complicated. In this tutorial, it will…

Almost every project is possible with the Raspberry Pi. This includes also a complete Raspberry Pi Tablet that we can use for different applications. Either as a multimedia tablet or as a panel for the smart home. In this article, I’d like to introduce the Sunfounder RasPad – a beginner-friendly…

There is an official 7-inch touchscreen module for the Raspberry Pi: After testing it under different applications for some time and also putting together a FAQ thread, in this article I summarized my impressions and the advantages and disadvantages of the display.

The Raspberry Pi 4 Model B has an integrated Wi-Fi and Bluetooth adapter. You can set up the Raspberry Pi 4 Wi-Fi on the desktop, as well as on the console. With the same price as the predecessor models, you can save the money for a USB adapter with a…
