Album: Control-System


I am building a control system based on a Raspberry Pi. Eventually it will control:
  • Generator running (as needed by heating/cooling in particular)
  • A/C units and fans (depending on inside and outside temp as well as whether we are on grid or off)
  • Heating
  • Hot water prep
  • Lights
  • Music and possibly visual media
  • GPS tracking/logging and possibly directions
  • Security
I finally hookup the Pi
with a touchscreen, a thermocouple and relay board to control the genset and/or heaters ( comments)
The Pi is destroyed
in the 2015 breakin, and I finally replace in Oct '16 and put it inside a circuit panel to secure it. ( comments)
