Automate Your Home Using Go: Build a Personal Data Center with Raspberry Pi, Docker, Prometheus, and Grafana
With just a Raspberry Pi and the Go programming language, build your own personal data center that coordinates and manages your home automation, leveraging the same high-powered software used by large enterprises. The projects in this book are easy to assemble, no soldering or electrical engineering expertise required.
Build a temperature monitor that can send alerts any time defined thresholds are exceeded and report the temperature readings on a time-based series chart. Change the color of lights to visually indicate the current outdoor weather status. Create a networked motion detector that triggers an alert any time motion is detected, such as a door opening or closing, a pet wandering around, or deliveries or visitors arriving on your front porch. Even have these triggers initiate a more complex Go-based automation sequence. Integrate a small, high-resolution camera into a bird feeder that takes excellent, up-close photos whenever a bird perches at the feeder, and broadcasts them to your Discord server where your family and friends can see these wildlife captures in real time.
Control your home with hardware you configure, and manage it with Go code that you create and modify any time you want to enhance your home automation capabilities.
