Raspberry Pi Greeter

Make your Raspberry Pi speak a greeting when you arrive. It works by routinely checking bluetooth for any registered devices, then speaks a greeting or farewell when the device is rediscovered or lost.


You will need bluez to handle bluetooth and gnustep-gui-runtime to run text-to-speech. Use the below commands to install them.

sudo apt -y install bluez python-bluez
sudo apt -y install gnustep-gui-runtime


  1. Clone the repo and cd in with git clone && cd rpi-greeter
  2. Put your device into bluetooth discoverable mode
  3. Run python and follow the directions to add your device
  4. Run the greeter in the background with python &
