I got my first piece of hardware yesterday.
It’s a simple piece of kit that will allow me to build up my own microgrid.
The kit comes with a Raspberry Pi Zero, a Raspberry pi 2 Model B, and a micro-controller board.
To start, I need to install the software.
I’ll be using the Pi Zero to connect to the Raspberry Pi 2 and run a Python script called a Python shell script.
Here’s how it works:First, I download and install the Raspberry pi Zero package.
It’s available for $29 on Amazon.
After that, I get the Raspberry Python shell package from the RaspberryPi Pi website.
Next, I install Python.
At this point, the Raspberry Zero is connected to the Pi 2.
My Python shell is running a Python interpreter on the Pi.
Then, I add some Python code to my Python shell and run it.
Finally, I connect the Pi to the internet and run Python.
The Python shell that I added to the Python shell I added.
This is the Python script that is running on the Raspberry.
When I start the Raspberry, it asks for my password.
I’m now able to test my microgrid out.
As you can see in the screenshot above, the microgrid looks great.
However, there’s a problem.
While I’m using my Pi, the Pi has a battery.
A battery is a thing.
If you’re using the Raspberry to power your home automation system, it is important to keep the battery low and away from power lines.
Battery life is a big deal, especially in a home automation setup.
We’ll cover the topic of battery life in more depth in the next article.
So, I have the Raspberry connected to a network, and the Raspberry is running Python.
Now, what I want to do is install and start my microgrids.
So I download the Python Python shell.
On the Raspberry I download pip and install it.
Next, on the computer, I start pip and run the Python command line.
Now, on my Raspberry, I run pip install localhost to install Python, and python install locallocalhost to install local Python.
