Re: Red Light

So how would I go about doing this update? Do I need to download all the included files and import them to the OS installation?

Re: Red Light

I'm thankful for your help, even though its not what I want to hear. Unfortunately I'm probably not going to be able to let it go with my recently acquired anger issues... Hammer time it is.

Re: Red Light

Unfortunately I'm in the military and not anywhere near any friends who are remotely interested in tech. Forums and manuals are the only help I am privy to.

Re: Red Light

I did install to the device (sdb) not a partition of (as in sdb1). Any thoughts? Im about to rage myself into taking a hammer to my new.....

Re: Red Light

I've tried three different SD Cards (all class 4 and up and all 4 GB and up) with different (Current) distros. I have tried two power supplies and checked the power with a multi/meter (all after having issues with the SD cards and OSs) and checked the pins of the SD Card slot. Nothing seems to be ou...

Re: Complete Home Security/Monitoring System

Scruss It doesn't have the GUI you want, but wouldn't the (extremely mature) home automation package MisterHouse be able to do most of the work? What doesn't have a GUI? The code I was asking about? I know that much. I'm working my way up to a GUI. I still need to write the scripts for monitoring a...

Re: Complete Home Security/Monitoring System

I've found a forum post here which has some python code for checking the status of sensors. Due to my lack of knowledge and experience with coding, I'm not sure if this would continuously monitor the status of the sensors or if you have to manually check/refresh the status. I assume that it auto ref...

Re: Complete Home Security/Monitoring System

I have been looking into some python coding as well. I'm not sure how to code a GUI at all. But I do have the background for it which is a scale, home made outline of my house that has every doorway and window as well as the proposed locations of cameras and motion detectors. I'm going to study and ...

Re: Complete Home Security/Monitoring System

I have the help to place and wire all sensors. I have friends in many residential wiring businesses in my home town. So getting power to the system would be fairly easy. My concern is the coding of the monitoring software and the GUI for the touch display. Could anyone help start me off by at least ...

Complete Home Security/Monitoring System

- So I have the intent of making a complete home security system with the Raspi as the brain. I want to have sensors on each door and window, cameras at each outer door and one in the garage, motion sensor lights on the corners of the house and a control panel that houses the raspi, a touch screen, ...
