The House Is Not On Fire: Building a home automation robot with Arduino, Raspberry Pi and Node.js

A session at Node PDX 2016

Monday 20th June, 2016

1:15pm to 1:45pm (PST)

Artur has built an open source home automation system called [Koti Home](https://github.com/arturi/kotihome) (Koti means home in Finnish language). It’s powered by an Arduino connected to Raspberry Pi, MQTT protocol for messaging, Node.js on the client and server, web sockets. You can interact with Koti robot via a React (like the cool kids do) control panel, Telegram Chat Bot and even your own voice.

Arthur will talk about how he's turned this project into reality — the tech he used and the challenges he faced. From a blinking LED to a voice controlled home automation robot.
