Raspberry Pi Home Automation with Arduino
Revolutionize the way you interact with your home and become part of the rapidly growing group of hobbyists and enthusiasts by combining the powerful Raspberry Pi with an Arduino board.
Starting with an introduction to the Raspberry Pi and Arduino boards you will set up your very own home automation system through a series of exciting projects, making your life a lot easier.
Build a thermostat, a Raspberry Pi control device, a parcel delivery detector, and a water and damp detector, and then move on to more complex projects including a motor mechanism to control your curtains.
By the end of this practical guide, you will be a confident user who can program, set up, and run a wide range of applications using both the Raspberry Pi and the Arduino.
Raspberry Pi 3 Home Automation Projects addresses the challenge of applying real-world projects to automate your house using Raspberry Pi 3 and Arduino. You will learn how to customize and program the Raspberry Pi 3 and Arduino-based boards in several home automation projects around your house, in order to develop home devices that will really rejuvenate your home.
This book aims to help you integrate different microcontrollers like Arduino, ESP8266 Wi-Fi module, Particle Photon and Raspberry Pi 3 into the real world, taking the best of these boards to develop some exciting home automation projects. You will be able to use these projects in everyday tasks, thus making life easier and comfortable.
We will start with an interesting project creating a Raspberry Pi-Powered smart mirror and move on to Automated Gardening System, which will help you build a simple smart gardening system with plant-sensor devices and Arduino to keep your garden healthy with minimal effort. You will also learn to build projects such as CheerLights into a holiday display, a project to erase parking headaches with OpenCV and Raspberry Pi 3, create Netflix’s "The Switch" for the living room and lock down your house like Fort Knox with a Windows IoT face recognition-based door lock system.
By the end of the book, you will be able to build and automate the living space with intriguing IoT projects and bring a new degree of interconnectivity to your world.

Raspberry Pi 3 System With CAN Bus Interface
Our Raspberry Pi 3 System With CAN Bus Interface (PiCAN2) comes with a pre-installed Raspbian operating system.
The included PiCAN2 board provides Controller Area Network (CAN) Bus capabilities for the Raspberry Pi. It uses the Microchip MCP2515 CAN controller with MCP2551 CAN transceiver. Connection are made via DB9 or 3-way screw terminal.
There is an easy-to-install SocketCAN driver, and programming can be accomplished in C or Python.
- Raspberry Pi 3, Model B, 1 GB RAM.
- Raspberry Pi 8GB Preloaded (NOOBS) SD Card - SanDisk Extreme 8GB microSDHC UHS-1 with speed up to 48 MB/sec.
- PiCAN2 - CAN Bus Interface for Raspberry Pi.
- The enclosure is made from High Impact Polystyrene HIPS UL94-HB material. Mounting flanges allow for wall mounting.
To say it upfront, the choice between the Arduino platform and the Raspberry Pi is primarily a personal matter, depending on factors like knowledge of programming and programming languages, preferences for operating systems, and, after all, hardware knowledge. Both system architectures, while being very different from each other, provide vast software and hardware support for [...]
