Reminder to self: get less dependent on the various clouds

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/06/04

For my link archive: [WayBack] Grote Google-storing trof Gmail, YouTube en diensten van derden – IT Pro – Nieuws – Tweakers.

It has some interesting tips for IoT video doorbell products that are less depending on single-choice clouds:

Er bestaan er minimaal eentje; smart deurbel met camera en evt speaker, eigen intern netwerk, compatible met SIP (en video), zelf verantwoordelijk voor opnamen, etc. Enige nadeel is dan wel de prijs, het is een Duits kwaliteitsproduct, dus reken rond de 350 euro voor het absolute basismodel. Doorbird heet het; oa te koop bij Robbshop en CoolBlue of direct bij de fabiraknt’s website.

 

Je moet je huis flink geautomatiseerd hebben wil je echt nut van die api willen hebben.

als je alles zelf in de hand wil hebben doe je dat ook. Je zorgt er zelf voor dat je webinterface via een externe URL bereikbaar is en dan is het enkel je eigen hardware en internetverbindingen die als SPOF dienen en je kan dan ook makkelijker van solution-provider wisselen zonder vast te zitten.

 

wellicht is dit een oplossing voor jou?

Build your own Infrared reader head for electriciti smart meters for around USD 6: haus-automatisierung.com [4K] – YouTube

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/03/24

In German, but very interesting IR-Lesekopf für SmartMeter selber bauen | haus-automatisierung.com [4K] – YouTube:

I could not find the promised follow-up video at haus-automatisierung.com – YouTube, but the manual steps and the site below have enough information for me.

Too bad the site is way to big to fully archive in the WayBack machine. I only saved the top pages:

Remote power control your IoT hardware and remote updating boot SD cards

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/07/16

Thomas Rini (of U-Boot and Yocto fame) mentioned these solutions for remote power control of IoT devices and remote updating SD cards in this slide State of the U-Boot – Thomas Rini, Konsulko Group:

Two power solutions I like myself are:

The combination of these allows for really flexible production and testing environments.

Node-RED

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/12/11

Node-RED is a programming tool for wiring together hardware devices, APIs and online services in new and interesting ways.It provides a browser-based editor that makes it easy to wire together flows using the wide range of nodes in the palette that can be deployed to its runtime in a single-click.

Seems one of the ways to automate our home: [WayBack] Node-RED, as it supports many input and output methods with all kinds of nodes between them:

input output
inject debug
catch
status
link link
mqtt mqtt
http http response
websocket websocket
tcp tcp
udp udp
serial serial

It is based on node.js, seems to need PM2 for running as a service, so I need to first figure out how well it runs on OpenSuSE (with more details than this gist).

After that I need to figure out how to version your configurations using git and document as it looks like the configurations sources are stored in JSON format [WayBack].

For resources:

  • StackOverflow node-red tag
  • Github node-red repositories
  • nodered documentation to:
    • get started (including Installation, Running, Adding non-stock Nodes, Upgrading, Creating your first and second flow, running on Docker / Windows)
      • running on a device (Raspberry Pi, BeagleBone Black, Android) which needs extra device specific modules to hardware inputs/outputs
      • communicating with a device (Arduino)
      • running in the cloud (IBM Bluemix, SenseTecnic FRED, Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure)
    • user guide (including Configuration, Security, Logging, Command-line Admin, Writing Functions, Embedding into an existing app)
    • cookbook (with many flows covering Basics, HTTP and MQTT)
    • creating nodes (with a wall of information: Creating your first node, JavaScript File, HTML File, Storing Context, Node properties, Node credentials, Node appearance, Node status, Configuration nodes, Help style guide, Packaging, Internationalisation)
    • flows (hundreds of them)

Code is published as JSON, but I wish more examples also showed the visual representation.

Via: [WayBack] Now I can go to bed :-) Added node-red [1] to my setup and thanks to node-red-contrib-ui [2] (replaced by node-red-dashboard [3]) I can now generate ni… – Jan Wildeboer – Google+ who also provided the large screenshot below.
