Ecohome lab - introduction & launch event

  • Apr 19, 2013 · 6:00 PM

Heard about Arduino, Raspberry Pi or OpenEnergyMonitors and want to get stuck in?
We've scheduled an event which is part workshop, part introduction to the field and part social.

If you're just curious about the potential of this technology come along at 8pm. If you want to get hand-on come along at 6pm for the practical elements. If you're new to this area and want to participate in other elements of the project attendance is pretty much essential!


6-7pm – Tooling upBring your laptops to MadLab and we'll take you through setting up the open-source Arduino prototyping environment, installing libraries and using GitHub.

7-8pm – Setting up your Raspberry Pi. We'll learning how to put a ready made image of the operating system and webserver onto an SD card and how to access your new Raspberry pi system from your computer.

8-9pm – An introduction to 'the internet of things' and its applications for making radical, collective reductions in household energy use.

Followed by a social in Common Bar...

    OK, we're putting together the presentation for tomorrow. Is there anything people would like to know about the project? Any burning questions? Let us know...

      Hey Matt. hopefully we'll be doing more build sessions in the future, but as you've already built the emontx part before, the best thing is probably just to put together your own kit and then come to the last Thursday sessions we are holding to share skills on how to use it.
