Raspberry Pi Smart-ish Door
2014/09/24: this project is not fully functional yet – come back in a month or so.
IN CASE YOU MISSED THE “WARNING”, THIS PROJECT IS CURRENTLY “PRE-ALPHA”, WHICH MEANS IT DOES NOT WORK YET.
raspi-door project comprises the GUI that is run on the
Raspberry PI on the inside of the door so that you can control your
door with awesomeness… or, as close as I can get it there.
Here are the list of raspi-door features that are implemented, going to be implemented, and may be implemented.
- Exterior door bell button and sound support
- Interior motion sensor and screen auto-on/off support
- Current time display
- Current weather display
- Door lock/unlock control

- Remote door lock/unlock with camera feed
- Nefarious activity detector! YA MAN!

If you run into an issue during the install process and pip just doesn’t work anymore, you may need to re-install setuptools. However, you need to do this without using
easy_install… so, check https://pypi.python.org/pypi/setuptools for direct installation details, i.e.:
$ wget https://bootstrap.pypa.io/ez_setup.py -O - | python
