Mixup some Vyinl Oldies, a little Ice to cast, and a PI for some energy, and your ready to go

A little known trivia - I was once a Disc Jokey, and spent a lot of my youth behind the decks, in clubs around the West Of Ireland. Today, I still am the proud owner of a very large collection of Vynil and CD music, which of course deserves to get a second life with my digital streaming audio system powered by Sonos USB Turntable Streamer I own a really nice turntable which is modeled on the Legendary Technical SL1200 MK3, which I am so well aquatinted with, including the awesome Citronix DJ Console which was home to 2 of these beauties in so many clubs way back when…

CBus MQTT Bridge on Raspberry PI

10 October 2019Category : IoT
Installing C-Gate on a Raspberry Pi, and adding a MQTT Bridge.

Turn back to 2007; My wife and I built our home, integrating many smart technologies, including the Clipsal C-Bus lighting system. This solution is classified as a Prosumer technology, and is designed to integrate into whole house automation systems. The C-Bus system implements however a proprietary technology, and utilizes a communication protocol which is not ‘open source’; however, accepting a license agreement will permit access to this protocol for creating an programming interface.

Configuring the Web Application Firewall with PowerShell.

A quick guide on how to connect and work with the Azure WAF from PowerShell.

Microsoft Azure Application Gateway is a Layer 7 application delivery controller (ADC) offered as a service in Azure. It provides load balancing, SSL termination, end-to-end SSL, URL path-based routing, and basic web application firewall (WAF) functionality. Working with the WAF, I usually build a basic configuration in the Portal before exporting the ARM JSON, which, then becomes my primary method to working on this service. Why JSON you may ask… One of my biggest gripes with the Azure Firewall solutions currently is based on thier CRUD (Create, Read, Update and Delete) interface.

Running FastLED on the Dual-Core ESP32

Building the FastLED solution with Platform.IO to run on the ESP32

FastLED Package There are many projects posted over the web which implement the excellent FastLED library on the ESP12 processor; however locating a project which implements this on the more powerful sibling is a lot more difficult. So, with a few failed attempts and a lot of patching samples together; I have a stable running implementation which you can clone or fork to get up and running quickly with your own projects.

My Journey to the Internet of Things

While preparing to use the NodeMCU, Reminiscing IoT evolution after 20 Years

In a previous post, I referred to an embedded device which is called a NodeMCU. This device is a developer kit, designed to make it easy to develop and test programs for the embedded ESP8266 System on a Chip. Many manufacturers are offering both developer and production kits which leverage this SoC; including the Wemos D1, Lolin, and in my case the NodeMCU. The function of these developer kits is to add some supporting features, for example, a USB to serial converter which makes programming a lot easier, in addition to a couple of buttons, and maybe an LED or two, for testing some simple scenarios with.

NodeMCU Pinouts

Quick reference for the Pin connections on the NodeMCU boards

Over the last number of years I have deployed various Raspberry PI’s around my home, to add more features to how we interact in the house. However, as wonderful as the PI is, there are alternative options available which are more appropriate to the various tasks which I need to address. NodeMCU For the past year, I have been using a tiny board, known as the NodeMCU which is essentially a developer board for a module know as the ESP8266.
