R PiHome+ can…
…remote (garage) door upon your departure. Based on which devices are connected/disconnected to your LAN/Wifi, R PiHome+ is able to control the appliances. E.g.: when you leave the house and your phone disconects from Wifi, Raspberry Pi automatically turns off the lights and sockets, closes the garage door, and locks the front door.
With a magnetic sensor you can check if the doors/windows are open or closed.
Task example: The task is triggered by opening the garage door (magnetic sensor). After 500 seconds, the R PiHome+ checks the status of the mobile phone and if the condition is met, the garage door will close.
…remote sprinkler based on the weather. Raindrop Detection Sensor collects data and lets Raspberry Pi know whether there is a drop on the pad, or not.
Task example: The task is triggered every day at 19:15. The rainfalls are being monitored for 43,200 seconds (12 hours). If it was not raining during the time frame, the relay will have been turned on for 1,800 seconds (30 minutes).
…change your Raspberry Pi to security system. You get a notification when someone breaks into your property. Alternatively, you could monitor your children what time they arrive at home. Additionally, magnetic sensors are able to detect opening of the door.
Task example: If the PIR sensor or the magnetic sensor is triggered, Raspberry Pi checks the status of the mobile phone. If the mobile phone was disconected from Wifi, a notification mail will be sent, and the output “Siren” will have been turned on for 120 seconds.
…remote (garden) lights based on the level of visibility. Place a light sensor on a spot you wish to gather the information from, and setup the threshold value to remote lights.
Task example: After the exceeding of the threshold value (the light sensor status becomes high), and it is after 19:00, the Raspberry Pi will turn on the outdoor lights.
If you connect an additional PIR sensor to your Raspberry Pi, you can remote the lights upon a movement.
Task example: If the PIR sensor is triggered, then R PiHome+ checks the level of visibility and current time. If all conditions were met the light relay will have been turned on for 15 seconds.
R PiHome+ can remote heating system, display and record into the database the temperature of more than 10 conected temperature probes. After installing all of the probes, select one as primary. The central heating system is regulated by the primary probe.
You can configure different temperatures throughout each day. By default, each day is split into 4 different periods; you may, however, split each day separately into 3, 2 or 1 periods based on your preferences. Similarly, each period can have its own specific timeframe and temperature.
