“Where are the keys?” Solving day-to-day Problems using Tech
Date: 25th May 2019
Event: PyConWeb 2019 Munich
There are many problems that we face in our day to day life. Many of them can be solved rapidly by using a combination of readily available technologies. In this talk, I explain how we solved the shortage of keys in our office using the power of Internet of Things & cloud services.
We faced a shortage of keys for the people in the office. It was really frustrating to open the door multiple times during the day and not to mention the loss of flow while working. We solved this problem by connecting the intercom in the office to the internet using a Raspberry Pi.
In this talk, I explain the challenges we faced & how we overcame them like exposing the service running on Raspberry Pi, security, adding support for multiple clients like Slack, cross-platform mobile apps, Siri commands, etc. The solutions are all simple services which are free or inexpensive to use.
