Multiple OLE displeys can determine the state of your home.
Raspberry Pi collects and displays your data acc. to your set priorities!
Slow progress.. It is summer-time and I have a lot household work as well as grandchilds need some (fulltime) care too.
However I plane now to use Lua scripts for ESP8266 devices and Mosquitto, NodeRed, MQTT for Raspberry Pi. Than I have not a few thinks to learn (lets say toooo many).
Raspberry installation with Jessie, NodeRed and Mosquitto ready to start. Some easy experiments with ESP8266 and lua done too.
I decide to use two separate wifi networks. One for home devices and other for displays and sensors. For me it is much easy to use wifi network for sensors because ESP devices and a lua scripts possible usage. Thru the network I can switch on and off for example light or horn too.
Raspberry as a server for the system is used. It is open for any devices to connect. WIFI, wired or web based.
There are digital inputs and relay to control something wired.
I have some components working with easy tests finished.
