Build a Raspberry Pi door / window sensor with Reed Relais

Felix - 19. May 2019

In addition to a┬ásurveillance 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 be shown how to easily […]

Control Raspberry Pi Wireless Sockets (433MHz) – Tutorial

Felix - 16. April 2018

Often you want to be able to control (household) devices with a higher voltage with the Pi. Raspberry Pi wireless-controlled sockets are ideal for this because they are very easy to control and you do not have to interfere with the circuit. For that and many other projects, there are wireless sockets, as they can […]

Connect and control Raspberry Pi motion detector PIR

Felix - 9. April 2018

Due to its design, the PIR motion sensor module is very easy to use because it already has the components installed. Raspberry Pi motion detectors in home automation and/or outdoor applications (as a classic outdoor motion detector) are easier than ever to implement. I will show the commissioning in this tutorial.

Remote Control a Raspberry Pi with 433Mhz Radio Transmitter

Felix - 6. April 2018

Whoever is aiming for home automation will sooner or later certainly think about the wireless operation. The 433Mhz frequency is ideal for this because there are many cheap transmitters and receivers as well as a wide range of available libraries and scripts. In this tutorial, I want to show how to use a small handheld […]
