In this talk, I will share how I build my smart home headquarters (gateway and server) on top of a Raspberry Pi 2, using Docker and all the buzzwords such as MQTT, Mosquitto, InfluxDB, Grafana and Node-RED. With this approach anyone is capable of continuosly monitor the current state of the home by its metrics, configure alarms (such as a moving sensor for intruder alert), turn on the AC system before leaving work or even make dinner by turning on the microwave, all empowered by easily-configured flow-control diagrams.
