HOME AUTOMATION USING ESP8266

Contributor: 

Prabakaran P.M

This Project is to Create Home Automation Prototype using the ESP8266 WiFi transceiver. As ESP8266-01 has only two GPIOs, here we are using that Two pins to control Two LED which can be connected to the relay to control home Appliances.

In this project when the Client request is established from any device, Esp8266 will respond to it in real time with HTML lines which will be displayed as a web page.

TEMPERATURE AND HUMIDITY SENSING USING ESP8266

This Project is to Create an IOT based Temperature and Humidity Logger using ESP8266, Which is programmed with the Arduino IDE. Here we will interface DHT11 type sensor with ESP8266 to obtain the readings. This can be viewed by accessing the webpage, in which it is connected through WiFi.

Here we are using USB to TTL converter for connecting the Module with the PC. The 3.3V output of the converter is used to power the module.

The Story Of A Fancy Bluetooth-LE Operated Door Lock

Do you know that you can easily reverse engineer a door lock? You can even modify those in order to control their opening and closing.

Recently, James shared a specific technique using which a door can easily be used through Bluetooth-LE via an Android Phone. The story started when he faced some specific issues in his home office with respect to his kids. 

He is a tech guy whose office is filled with loads of hi-tech breakable, dangerous, and expensive things that could easily harm kids. In order to keep things safe, he bought a lock from a local hardware store, a simple one with an electronic keypad.

Cycling With Style

Gone are those unsafe days when people used smartphone or listen to headphones for navigation while cycling as the latest DIY project of Adafruit is a “smart helmet”, which navigates the user to where they want to go and even displays a light show. 

Although the helmet is kind of tedious because users have to manually enter in coordinates and it requires well-versed experience to change paths while travelling. Further, it let the user know where to go through a series of lights and flashes.

Raspberry Pi Voice Controlled Home Automation

​ Jamie Deakin

My name is Jamie, I am part of the 'Adrian Project' team developing a stand alone voice controlled home automation system on the Raspberry Pi, called Adrian.

The project has been in development for 6 months with a planned Kickstarter launch date in 2-3 months time. We're really excited about our project as there isn't anything else out there with this level of functionality developed on the Raspberry Pi. 

Some key features being built into the system are:

OBJECT-FOLLOWING ROBOT

Thinking of making robots, you might come up with ideas such as line tracking, obstacle avoider, anti-drop Robot, environment monitoring Robots, etc. But what we are going to make today, is a robot that follows an object, relentlessly. The basic function of this robot is simple: it follows you. It goes forward as you go forward; when you stop moving, it stops as well.

I used an Ultrasonic range sensor to identify the moving direction of the object. You can also add more number. The minimum number that will do the job is one

THE SMART GRID

Written By:

Since the invention of the light bulb by Thomas A. Edison and the installation of the first AC (Alternating Current) generators by Nikola Tesla, i.e. when the eyes of the public were opened to electricity, they never closed but opened wider and wider. The demand for electricity has grown exponentially in the past 100 years. The power grids have been laid out a long time ago in most countries but what has been done to bind the gap between the existent when they were laid and that of today? The answer is yes although it seems economically impractical to just up and replace all the old heavy machinery with new ones.
