Home Automation with Raspberry Pi


The Internet has revolutionized how we search, consume and share information. The Internet of Things (IoT) involves extending internet connectivity to everyday devices like lights and fridge in your home to change the way we live, work, entertain, travel and even how governments and businesses work! The outlook is promising…it is estimated that by 2020, worldwide market for IoT will be ~$9 Trillion with almost 31 Billion IoT devices. Get your feet wet with the exciting and growing field of IoT. In this course, we will use a general purpose single-board computer, Raspberry Pi, to create simple examples of home automation. You will learn how sensors, microprocessors with connectivity and processes form the foundation of IoT. In this action-packed course, you will learn about Pi’s anatomy, coding using Python programming language and circuit designing as you build simple home automation projects.
