i wish this was more interesting.
i have a spare RPi2 sitting on my home network.
It started as a pi-hole. It blocks all ads, network wide.
Then i needed a vpn, so it also became a VPN endpoint…
It has now also become a sonos volume limiter, programmed in python… very much like the hushbox, cept i dont have the skills to give it any HTML/frontend for config… (msg me for the code if you want it)
The sonos limiter is coded to turn anything above 60% down, to 60%… the code is super simple, it needs to be, since im not a programmer at all.
NOW, its also a garage door opener… front end coded with Node-RED
Nice work on putting the Pi to work as a multipurpose device! If you wanted to have your project put up on our projects page, then feel free to submit a write up there. But as it is, thanks for sharing your experience. I’m sure it will encourage other makers to have a crack themselves.
For 21 days the RPi also worked as a Domotz network monitoring appliance.
Domotz works amazingly, and I also got a trial with the Crestron/CresNet monitoring available.
Can’t recommend Domotz enough.
Awesome, thanks for the feedback Dan, it’s great to see what you can implement with a Raspberry Pi.
yeah nah, its pretty simple. doesn’t really need a write up.
thanks for the quick delivery lads.
