The Raspberry Pi offers an array of general purpose Input-Output pins(GPIOs) which enables software running on the Linux computer to sense events in the physical world as well as effect it in very simple ways. A software program can be used to read a switch or even a sensor connected to the GPIOs in addition to the ability to send electrical signals out. For example, a user program can be used to read a simple push button which in turn can be used to trigger events in software. The user may also elect to control a single LED by switching it ON and OFF to reflect events in software.

Its been a while since this project and I really havn’t had the time to write a blogpost in a while. Last year, I made an IoT light for the Element14.com roadtest plus where I used a lot of technology from Texas Instruments and Wurth Electronics. TI was kind enough to showcase the build on their power house blog and I wrote a two part series for the same. Continue reading “Designing an IoT Modular Light feat. TI”
The basic idea is to connect living room lighting to the internet and make them work together with holiday lighting so that the entire system functions as a whole. In this post I discuss the structure of the system.
