Greetings! I have made an iOT thing:
Currently, this little iOT Lamp is running on a pi-zero-w with a Pimoroni Unicorn pHat. The scripts are all written in python — some of which are the examples that come either with the Pimoroni BlinkIt or Pimoroni Unicorn, others of which I pulled from some of the Adafruit NeoPixel libraries, and yet a couple of which I wrote myself. The webserver itself is running right on the pi-zero-w — apache2 and php 7.2 — and is configured to launch an ssh connection from Amazon EC2 to my home R2-D2 lamp to send the commands.
The R2-D2 is a gutted nightlight from AliExpress.
I’m looking at eventually making this into an instructable!
