Well, again it’s an Internet of Things, based projected mainly built around Raspberry Pie which is a low-cost single-board computer and was mainly designed to teach programming to the student of United States. A GarageMote was developed, that is a garage door controller shield that can be operated remotely using web or even your smartphone from around the world. The hardware is simplistic, the shield has a small relay, a diode, and 2 resistors. The 8 pin header has connections for 2 Hall Effect sensors and the door opener.
The good thing, about the project, that entire code- schematics, and eve the API’s are all easily available to download and changed can be made based on your application if you have some knowledge about the PIE. A sender Moteino can then be plugged into GarageMote to read the sensors, report status changes, and listen for door action commands from the gateway. A Moteino is a low cost as well as low power wireless Arduino clone. In the end, an excellent real time project that can be implemented in majority of the house but might be a little difficult to modify by the people who lack skills in programming the PIE.
