Internet of things
  1. the interconnection via the Internet of computing devices embedded in everyday objects, enabling them to send and receive data.

Intend to build a home sensor network based on Arduino and Raspberry devices hosting environmental sensors and home voice activated automation system. Guess this is the Intranet of Things – IoT

Late to the story but can see where this is going. Can remember early days where we were being trained in digital electronics and the wait to access microcontrollers. You can now purchase for next to nothing multi core devices and the tools to develop and interface are amazing. 

Picked up a couple of Arduino’s and a Raspberry PI to play with. A kit of sensors off eBay was sourced so as to get a spread of what we can monitor. Its just a case of integrating the pieces.

Like all IT deployment security and scaleability have to be the predominate design factors;

“if one thing can prevent the Internet of things from transforming the way we live and work, it will be a breakdown in security”

Current design is simple and will not be connected to the Internet. Voice control will be will Jasper on Raspberry Pi. Pocketsphinx as the STT (Speech To Text) engine so recognition will be performed offline. Not just to keep my data off the Internet but to conserve the rural connection. 


  • Multiple Andriod based sensors
  • RF based sensor network
  • Raspberry Pi hosting Jasper automation
  • Linux based presentation layer
  • Remote control of external (chicken door) instances
