I made a Wordclock with MicroPython and an ESP8266, and one with a Raspberry Pi and Python.

I gave a talk at Grazer Linuxtage about the build process. You can see the talk on CCC’s media website or on YouTube.

The slides can be found here: https://flowolf.github.io/glt18-talk.

At some point I’m planning on releasing the source code and the vector files for the Wordclock face. Have still some cleaning up to do. In the mean time: there are several word clock projects out there that use a Raspberry Pi and Python; just search for them.

Home Automation with Python…

I gave a talk at Grazer Linuxtage 2017. It’s about Home Automation and how you can use Python to realize it.

The talk covers a simple example of a DIY sensor that runs MicroPython. Finally I give a short introduction to Home Assistant, a Python Home Automation Hub, that allows you to integrate with hundreds of devices. Home Assistant offers integrations to light switches, smart lights (Hue, Tr√•dfri, Lightify,…), door sensors, heat control units, and many others.

There is a video of my talk on my Youtube channel:
