FAQ:

Q: How do I connect a door sensor to a Raspberry Pi?

A: The door sensor has two wires – connect 1 wire (doesn’t matter which) to a free pin (I choseu0002PIN 8 – you need to refer to this PIN in the code explicitly) and the other to one of the ground (GND) Pins ( pin diagram here ). Start up the Raspberry Pi and go to the desktop (type: “startx”).

Q: Is it worth buying a sensor for the Raspberry Pi?

A: Oh well, it’s a good idea, especially with the increase in Internet of Things devices. Like using the sensor to get the Pi to send a trigger to Hue type bulbs when you get up in the night for the toilet, or send an email when a delivery person opens the porch door (or doesn’t open the door and just leaves a letter to say they tried).

Q: What is a Raspberry Pi 1-Wire sensor?

A: These Raspberry Pi sensors are addressed via the so-called 1-wire bus. An advantage is that many different 1-wire components can be connected in series and read out by a single GPIO. However, these modules can not measure additional information such as humidity and / or air pressure.

Q: Can Raspberry Pi sensors detect motion?

A: These Raspberry Pi sensors can be used to detect motion, but not all of them are “real” motion sensors. The PIR motion sensor has some advantages over other similar products: besides the low price, a signal is sent only if something moves. This allows you to wait for signal flanks using the GPIOs.
