Been a while since my last update but I’ve still been at it with my home automation projects. This project lets me control my Garage Door from my phone!

ESP8266 + Raspberry Pi Garage Door Controller

Find the written tutorial at https://www.easyprogramming.net/raspberrypi/nodemcu_garage_door_control.php

Get the code at https://github.com/naztronaut/NodeMCU-Pi-Garage-Control

And watch the video demo below:

The written tutorial is all there is to the tutorial, I tried something different and did not do a full video tutorial but don’t worry, the written tutorial is still very thorough!

As part of my 12th Raspberry Pi tutorial, I’ve installed some kitchen cabinet lights that I can control from my mobile phone. Here’s a quick demo:

Demo of Raspberry Pi controlled Kitchen Cabinet Lights

What’s on my phone is actually just a simple web app so you can actually control the lights from any browser whether it’s from your phone or computer.

Here are some resources:

A few months ago, I set up a YouTube channel called Nazbotics. I have several published videos, they can all be found in the Channel. here is one that I am very proud of. This video is basically me controlling two servo motors remotely using two Arduino Unos. It’s very simple and it kinda looks like robotic arms. This is pretty much the precursor to how robotic arms would move.

I do have the code somewhere, but I improve on it in my later┬ávideos, be sure to check the channel for those. I’ll post them to this blog slowly to showcase what I’m learning in the world of robotics and Arduino. It’s fun and if you’re a techy like I am, I’d definitely recommend investing in an Arduino. Arduino Uno goes for around $33 on Amazon.
