SolvedForHome.com is a website for home made and home purpose solutions from our hands.
The best way to predict the future is to create it.
We started this project in March 2016 and are eager to present you our useful knowlegde.
Patience and perseverance have a magical effect before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish.
This will be our first and most frequent posts and those for all those people getting their hands dirty.
Software or software recommendations will be brought to you in the future as well.
We currently developing out of the box hardware for your home use.
This website will present and explain software, electronics and scripting solutions for everyones home.
We will show you solutions for
- home automation
- private clouds
- data storage solutions
for your own use.
The 21st century and all its powerful hardware and software grows more and more complex, while concepts of simple home solutions sound still trivial . We want to give you some of this solutions and even more we want to prove to you, that also solutions can be simple.
We want to share our knowledge and built devices or software entities with everyone, who is brave enough to simplify his/her life.
We want to bring you technological solutions, so the technology can more and more disappear into the background and life will gain more time and value.
In a near future we also present a shop to purchase simple solutions which can be used without or with only a little software and hardware knowledge for installation.
Remote Control Raspberry via apache2 Web Server: This post guides you to remote control your raspberry pi via https (self-signed SSL certificate) from wherever you want. We show you how to add htaccess security and add commands via php.
Let’s say you have some fancy Raspberry Pi setup at home which does some home automation (e.g. via GPIOs) or other tasks for you. But how do you remote control your tasks if necessary? My suggestion is a web interface or a simple android smart phone or tablet app (these devices are usually at hand, so there is no need to access you pi directly).
When working with a raspberry pi, you might need some USB storage to carry your data. I for example use a raspberry as a quite powerful seafile cloud server, which will probably be presented in a later post. As I was working with usb storage on raspberry pis, I became pretty bored on mounting devices manually and unmount it later aswell. The installable ‘automount’ program didn’t suit my flavor by adding unlabeled usb* folders to /media/*. I want to see the correct device name like on a regular desktop computer. So, I wrote a handy USB Automount Script for Raspberry Pis with the according udev rule to execute it when required.
The main script can be downloaded here:mount_manager (165 downloads)
Here is, how you implement it:
