Smart Doorbell

This is how cognitive surplus works:

I should do laundry… Nah, I’ll write an unnecessary software application instead.

The latest unnecessary software application is my Smart Doorbell program. Consisting of a python program and libraries, Smart Doorbell solves the age-old problem of how to replace cheap things with expensive things that have a few more features.

Summary from the project README:

This program turns your Raspberry Pi into a doorbell. It can replace a traditional hardware doorbell, and it integrates with openHAB and has a number of customization features.

  1. Any notes on how you actually wired things up? Is it a seamless integration with all parts nicely tucked away? Thanks for your post!

    1. I’m fairly terrible at making things look pretty 🙂 I may be able to show it in an actual installation soon, since I plan to use it as the doorbell mechanism in new construction.
