Project: Catch the Cookie Thief

At this point you should be comfortable with remotely accessing your Raspberry Pi either locally or via the internet. SSH should be straight forward. Executing Python scripts shouldn't be anything new.

Unfortunately I have a problem. Every evening when I leave my cookies out I find them gone the next morning! I know it ain't Santa as this is happening in the middle of the summer. Well, I need to get to the bottom of this and I am going to do this with the help of the Raspberry Pi!

In the following tutorials I show you how to do some home automation with multiple Raspberry Pi computers. I walk you through using the GPIO via Python 3, using the Raspberry Pi brand camera, socket communication, image manipulation, read analog sensors and receive digital inputs.

Project Details…

Ever wanted to get your computer to actually do something in the physical world? This project is for you. Over the course of twenty tutorials we will build a simple home automation system where we will control lights, read both digital and analog sensors, take pictures, back up files and much more.

It is expected that you are familiar with working in the Raspberry Pi environment and are capable of basic Python 3 programming. Although little experience is needed, you will find it easier to keep up if you have followed my previous Raspberry Pi tutorials and have a little Python 3 programming background.
