How to build a smart home for a recreation vehicle(RV) Answered
There are already a bunch of projects doing similar things for houses but non for RV homes. I would like to communicate with my camper RV motor home and trying to understand and learn ways to do this.
Here are some thought of requirements:
- Data like temperatures, rain sensor, burglarizing alarm and a few webcams
- Google App engine and Google GCM for the storage and bidirectional communication.
- The RV API can let any device have bidirectional coms
My thought is to us info from other HOUSE projects and do a mash-up to fit an RV,
example: (thanks to Nikus at instructables) "Smart home with arduino"
The HOUSE in this project has a static ip no problem with coms but what about an RV?
There are a number of questions like I think the RV will have problem with a static IP or maybe not any ides on this would be grate?
Why do most project use the Arduion over the Raspberry pie what would be most suitable for my project?
If anybody here have done this or want to contribute with knowledge it would be a grate
