Embedded Web Control Panels on the Raspberry Pi (MSTMicro Publishing)
Friday, 15 April 2022

This book shows how to go about creating your own home control system that can be accessed through a cell phone or a web page on your home computer. ? George Babec's real world examples show how to go about it. 


The examples look at programing and controlling an embedded computer like the Raspberry Pi, including how to play a wav file by pressing a button on a web page, turn on and off General Purpose Input Output (GPIO) pins for external control using relays and transistors to control lights, LEDs and other devices, or read and monitor the CPU temperature over time without refreshing the page.
