Arduino is an open source hardware project which means anyone can build and sell boards based off of the Arduino design. This is good because other manufacturers can sell boards for a fraction of the cost of a genuine Arduino board, but the downside is that quality assurance on cheaper boards can be lacking.
PIR Sensors (Passive Infrared) are the standard sensors used for motion detection. They offer a wide field of view and are easy to configure, but offer only HIGH/LOW output and are not overly accurate. Functional […]
With this project we create an IoT Environmental control device that uses a MariaDB (MySQL) database as the datastore. This allows you to use database functionality to create log files and be able to corrrelate […]
You can send data to a Raspberry Pi from an Arduino, have the Pi compute the data and use “intelligence” to send the Arduino a command. This allows you to fully use a Pi as […]
