If you love data, automating things, and just seeing cool stuff then you’re going to love IoT.
There are some great software packages such as cayenne to help speed up how fast you can build IoT enabled devices. Some of these are open source while others are closed source. You could create your own if you have the patience, time and skill.
For anyone who is wondering what IoT is then to put it simply, it mainly refers to devices that can collect and communicate data between each other. This data could be from sensors, actuators, electronics and so much more. Of course, there is much more it than that, but that’s the basic idea.
We’re working on bringing you more and more Raspberry Pi IoT projects so be sure to stay tuned. You can sign up to the mailing list or simply follow us on social to stay up to date with all the latest tutorials.
There are plenty more projects to come, and with the IoT software packages advancing every day we will be able to do a lot cooler things a lot easier.
As you may already know there is a ton more you can do with the Raspberry Pi. For example, you can set up a web server, security camera, VPN router and so much more. Check out our main Pi project page if you would like to check out more cool projects.
One thing you may need to learn is a lot of Linux commands, these can be a bit daunting at first but will make a lot more sense after a few weeks of practicing with them.
I hope that you like these Raspberry Pi IoT projects and they have helped you learn how to install, use and build IoT Applications. If you have any feedback, recommendations, or anything else be sure to leave a comment on the relevant tutorial.
