Making the Raspberry Pi Use RF signals for logic
Making the Raspberry Pi Use RF signals for logic
28 March 2016 | Updated 11 April 2017 | Renier Delport |
This post will explain how to get the Raspberry Pi to read and interpret RF signal-codes to be used for logic. Ultimately I'll show you how to "capture" signals as strings and compare them with expected strings to trigger either a Bash or Python script. Read more...
