This is the UniPi. It is an expansion board for the Raspberry Pi. But it is not like the others. It allows you to interact with the real world without any other components. Have you ever dreamed of turning your home into an intelligent home Do you want to know how much power does your home devices consume Do you want to know if you forgot to lock your house or left your window opened Than this is the board made for you. It control motors, lights, locks and basically anything that can be switched on or off.
It also reads signals from energy meters, motion and many other sensors you wish to connect. We wanted to turn this building into an intelligent one. The UniPi drives every device in each room. From access through light, curtain and temperature control to motion detection. Anything that can be turned on, is turned on by the UniPi. UniPi is also perfect for your home or school project! Did you ever forget to turn the ligh on your fish tank on Don't worry! With UniPi you can take care of it anytime, anywhere.
With UniPi you can easily and safely connect your Raspberry Pi to multiple devices without worries of damaging your Pi. UniPi features 8 changeover relays and 14 digital inputs. To read inputs even easier we fitted the board with power supply which gives just enough power for all its inputs. But if you want to provide your own voltage, just switch configuration pins and you are done! We also put 2 analog inputs and one analog output so you have the possibility to read and control 010 Volts analog devices. On top of that, we added a 1Wire controller.
To connect up to hundred temperature and humidity sensors. To make sure the system does not loses time during blackout we included a real time clock module. We also wired out the second I2C port of the Raspberry Pi giving you possibility to connect up to 8 additional relay boards making it total of 130 relays. All in one device. The UART port is preserved for your own use and wired out via the RJ11 connector but if you don't know what you might use it for check out our web pages for some inspiration.
Processing on Raspberry Pi PiTFT
This is a fun project to run the Processing creative coding environment on the Raspberry Pi PiTFT display. Processing is an easy way to experiment with and learn about programming, and the latest 3.0 release can run on the Raspberry Pi. To use Processing on the Pi download the latest Linux ARMV6HF build of Processing 3.0. Then inside the Pi's graphical desktop environment run the Processing executable. You can create sketches just like on your computer and they'll display on a monitor or television connected to the Pi. You can even setup a PiTFT to display a Processing sketch that you developed on your computer.
With Processing's new fullScreen function your sketch will automatically size itself to run on the small PiTFT display. See the full guide linked in the description for all the details on using Processing with a PiTFT. Another new feature in Processing is hardware control on the Raspberry Pi.

Simple solar panel setup to power a trolling motor
Hi everybody, it's Steve. I want to show you real quick the solar setup I've got here on the pontoon. I was tired of bringing down shore power and a battery charger every time I wanted to charge the twelve volt battery, the marine battery, I use for the trolling motor. So I came up with an option here of a solar panel and charge controller. and I went ahead and mounted the panel up on the rail made a couple brackets to mount it on the rail, or I can pitch it up on an angle if I want to get better solar exposure,.
Or if I want to get it up and out of the way, just hang it up on the back rail, faces south all the time, constantly charges and tops the battery. The battery that we are running is a marine grade deep cycle battery. and we're wired into our charge controller. I'm going to be mounting a box up here. a weather proof box with some ventilation up here. and get the battery back on the outside, so it frees up all this floor space. for the time being, I'll keep the battery is in the box,.
And keep the charge control protected, not sure if you can see. that or not, we've got a red light which tells us we're charging and connected to the panel. and the solid light which tells us it's charging the battery right now, as I speak. I also have a battery indicator LED that's kind of hard to read, which tells us the percentage of battery charge. This charge controller here, PWM charge controller will go ahead and float. when it gets full, so it won't over charge that battery. I also keep in here a small battery tester, which I.
Will go ahead and disconnect my leads.. and check my battery. and I'm sitting full with thirteen volts right now. now it's flashing because it's floating, because I have it disconnected I'll go ahead and reconnect it. and thirteen point zero, because it's full. This is an old battery that hasn't been treated very well over the years. I'll go ahead and put this in a weather tight compartment with some ventilation around the bottom. the bottom, of this high quality bucket. covered with a brick. For the time being, that works just great.
I haven't had to hook to shore power in over a month and a half. For just around sixty or seventy dollars US on eBay. This came with a sixty watt panel, plus the charge controller, plus the cables for under seventy dollars delivered. I can't beat that with a stick! I just wanted to show you that real quick and thanks for watching! If you like this tutorial, please subscribe to the channel and give it a thumbs up , also, please! I'm also going to have more info in a blog post on enjoytimeoutdoors.
Kickstarter ReadySet Solar Kit for iPad, iPhone, Android more
Hi! My name is Mike Lin. And I'm Brian Warshawsky. And we run Fenix International, a San Franciscobased startup, where we make renewable energy products for emerging markets. Our first product, the ReadySet, is a renewable energy system that can be charged from solar panels, bicycle generators, or even grid electricity. An estimated 1.5 billion live off the grid, without access to electricity. Incredibly, 600 million use cell phones even while lacking the power to keep their phones charged. They also burn kerosene for lighting, which is dirty, dangerous, and expensive.
We designed the ReadySet to make it easy to start an offgrid phone charging business, as well as provide clean and safe electric lighting. I was able to collect 100,000 from the charging of people's phones last month. Since we launched the ReadySet in Africa, many of our friends have been asking us, when they'll be available here in the US. We're happy to announce, the time is now. While we designed the ReadySet for the developing world, there are just as many applications for the ReadySet here at home. Each ReadySet Kit includes a 15 Watt solar panel,.
A grid charger, an LED light, and a universal clip charger, that can charge lithium ion batteries for nearly any camera or cell phone. We built the ReadySet to power countless devices, from its 2 USB ports and 2 car lighter adaptor ports. You can use the ReadySet to create a lowcarbon digital lifestyle, by powering your iPad, iphone, or Android devices with solar power. If you like the outdoors, you can use the ReadySet to power your campsite, by running lights, speakers, and other devices while you're off the grid.
In case of an emergency, like an earthquake, hurricane, or snow storm, the ReadySet can provide vital backup power for communications, flashlights, portable radios, and even a wifi hotspot. These applications are just the start. We've designed the ReadySet with an open standard input to enable users to design their own sources of power generation, like a microwind turbine our interns designed last summer. We're publishing a power API, and launching an online platform to allow makers and hackers to collaborate and to develop new hardware applications for the ReadySet. Together, we can create ReadySet applications that are useful here at home,.
And hopefully power sustainable development in emerging markets as well. So Kickstarter, here's what we need from you. In order for us to bring the ReadySet to the US and support our developer community, we need 100 of you to buy a ReadySet now. By funding our Kickstarter, you can show your support for renewable energy, and help us in our mission to deliver power to the 1.5 billion people who live without electricity. Check back here for new tutorials and updates, and help us spread the word. Thank you very much for your support.
