This uses Raspberry Pis and temperature sensor modules to log the temperature of various rooms in my apartment at regular intervals. It employs Google Cloud IoT Core for device management and communication, and Google App Engine for the service that handles data ingestion and display.
This uses a Raspberry Pi, an LED driver circuit, the Linux IR Remote Control library, Google Home, and IFTTT to control an audio amplifier by voice. Its documentation has proven useful to others trying to configure LIRC > 0.9.0 on a Raspberry Pi.
