I’ve decided I want to play with the Pi a little more.
I’ve got an idea for a little web-based control panel which I’ll place next to my front door, and use to hook into various home automation bits, starting with my Sonos - as that’s pretty much the only IoT thing I own right now - but expanding it with more things as time goes on.
I’ve just discovered the official 7" Touchscreen Display which looks amazing, and pretty much perfectly fits in with my idea.
I can use Node to build the app/server (although, depending on how much tolerance I have for pain, I might give up and just use Ruby), and make a basic, touch screen friendly, interface which people can use to check themselves in and out of the flat.
To do the above properly, I’m going to buy myself a new Pi 2 (as well as the display), which leaves my existing first-gen Pi without a job, so I’m going to give it something to do by installing Pi-Hole on it.
Anyway, that’s me - I’m keen to know what you lot have used Pis for.
