Makers, hobbyists and developers that would like to have remote access to their DIY projects may be interested in a new Raspberry Pi project published by Matthew Sweeterman explaining how you can set up a smart remote on your smartphone using a Raspberry Pi mini PC.
The smartphone smart remote allows you to access your project from anywhere in the house directly from your mobile device. “Have you ever wanted to turn on an off a light without getting up out of bed? Have you ever wanted the satisfaction of creating a smart home interface yourself? Then let’s get started because today I’m going to show you exactly that.”
Full instructions on how to accomplish this have been published to the huckster.io website and no physical parts need assembly in order to complete the project. As long as you have the required materials and can provide power. “This project relies on cloudMQTT to send messages from the web server to the raspberry pi, a cloudMQTT account is required to use this (Don’t worry it’s free). The project is fairly simple. The web server has a button that sends a message to the raspberry pi. Once the pi receives the message it runs a function to change the state of the light to on or off depending on what its on.”
