Home security and domotica system: DOMO

Home security and domotica system: DOMO

DOMO is the prototype of an Arduino and Raspberry Pi based home security and domotica system.

I decided to develop both hard and software for this project. The final goal of DOMO is to provide an intruder detection system using motion detectors, and provide control over lights, sunscreen and heating system using relays and temperature sensors.

The server side software will be written in Node.js. This part of DOMO communicates with Arduino and processes all the sensor values and triggers the relays. I have chosen to run the backend on a Raspberry Pi.

The hardware is driven by an Arduino board. With little circuits the Arduino is capable of reading sensors (e.g. for temperature) and trigger relays. The Arduino is programmed with the Processing language.

DOMO provides a dashboard which controls all aspects of the system. This frontend is  build on the Angular JS framework.


Social whisky network

Social whisky network is a social whisky network with a large amount of bottling and distillery information.

With you are able to manage your whisky collection online.

With just a few clicks, you are able to add whisky bottlings to your personal collection. It is even possible to set the amount of whisky left.

As a whisky collector you always have a bottling which you really want to have. offers you a personal wishlist on wich you can add these bottlings. With your whisky wishlist, you always know which whisky could be the next one to buy.

Which whisky did I drunk last year and with who? These kind of question answers via your personal whisky logbook. This whisky logbook enables you to write notes about when, where, why and with who you have drunk a whisky.

Beside writing logs your are able to write whisky reviews as well. When you write a review you can choose to just write a short summary or an extended tasting note. In this way other whisky fanatics are able to see why you like or dislike a certain whisky bottling.

Because uses adaptive design, it works seamless on desktop, tablet and  smartphones.


Open Data search engine

Open Data search engine is a search engine for Open Data related to the Netherlands. It allows you to easily find open data by category, API type, location, dataformat and many other metadata.

The goal of this project is to make searching for a specific Dutch Open Datasets as easy as possible.

This project features the Open Data Map which shows the location of datasets on a map. Another feature is the Open Data Timeline which allows users to see which period a dataset covers.


BlenderCourse ebook

BlenderCourse ebook

This project’s goal is to provide free lessons / tutorials / ebooks in PDF format for the 3D modeling tool Blender 3D. Blender 3D is a free and open source 3D tool which enables users to create images and animation.

The idea behind is to write step-by-step courses which cover various Blender related topics.

The latest release is called BlenderCourse Basics. This ebook contains over 120 pages of exercises and teaches you how to work with Blender 3D. This course is suitable for everyone who can use a computer. You are being guided through every step in the course exercises. The large amount of screenshots, ensures you do every step correct. Beside the ebooks in PDF format, BlenderCourse also offers you all the source files, which allows you to check how to fulfill the exercises when you are stuck during a chapter.
