Projects Meeting 2020-12-12
- Brad mentioned during introductions (https://convergencejukebox.wordpress.com/)
- Eileen and Cody International Space Station
Their project notifies you when the ISS is visible and when it is overhead – Rocket Man (https://spotthestation.nasa.gov/tracking_map.cfm)
- Don – Music list player
The Raspberry Pi will be woken up and put to sleep via pin 5 (note this is pin 5 on the header, not GPIO pin 5). On the 40 pin Pi pin 5 is GPIO 3. This will happen when the amplifier is turned on and will then be available to play the tunes.
- Craig – IPV6 of course, but a different spin. If MotionEye does not do IPV6 then one must decompile the appropriate .pyc file using Uncompyle6, add IPV6 support and put the resulting .py file back. It will be compiled the next time it is run. (http://www.makikiweb.com/ipv6/motioneyeos_and_ipv6.html)
- Deid – No pressure? Then it must be added. Addition of barometric pressure to the Node-Red display using a BMP280 barometric pressure and temperature sensor. (http://drsol.com/~deid/pi/bmp/)
- Mark – Raspberry Pi control of a “Little Christmas Tree” (https://github.com/modmypi/Programmable-Xmas-Tree) (https://thepihut.com/products/christmas-tree-programmable-kit).
- Joe – Integration of ESPs with Home Assistant and ESPHome ( https://www.home-assistant.io/ ) (https://www.home-assistant.io/faq/ha-vs-hassio/ https://esphome.io/) (https://esphome.io/). I thought I had a lot of things about being measured and switched. Joe wins!
- Murray – talked about and chose to try btrfs for his new NAS, and compared it to ZFS. The ZFS file system. More here: (https://itsfoss.com/what-is-zfs/.) BTRFS more here: (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Btrfs)
- Sound – USB Rubber Ducky. A password inserter. Using a micro controller built into a USB Stick sized module. (https://youtu.be/Mh85R-S-dh8 Well, not really.)
- George – Battery powered humidity sensor and others.
- Jim – Pull dynamometer design. The intent is to build this into a reliable field instrument to measure, record, and plot the resistive force produced when an object is pulled from rest to a specified maximum velocity.
Thank You Died for notetaking.
