Book Description

Raspberry Pi 3 Home Automation Projects addresses the challenge of applying real-world projects to automate your house using Raspberry Pi 3 and Arduino. You will learn how to customize and program the Raspberry Pi 3 and Arduino-based boards in several home automation projects around your house, in order to develop home devices that will really rejuvenate your home.

This book aims to help you integrate different microcontrollers like Arduino, ESP8266 Wi-Fi module, Particle Photon and Raspberry Pi 3 into the real world, taking the best of these boards to develop some exciting home automation projects. You will be able to use these projects in everyday tasks, thus making life easier and comfortable.

We will start with an interesting project creating a Raspberry Pi-Powered smart mirror and move on to Automated Gardening System, which will help you build a simple smart gardening system with plant-sensor devices and Arduino to keep your garden healthy with minimal effort. You will also learn to build projects such as CheerLights into a holiday display, a project to erase parking headaches with OpenCV and Raspberry Pi 3, create Netflix’s "The Switch" for the living room and lock down your house like Fort Knox with a Windows IoT face recognition-based door lock system.

By the end of the book, you will be able to build and automate the living space with intriguing IoT projects and bring a new degree of interconnectivity to your world.
